Pro-Life Prayers

A Prayer for Human Life

Father, we praise Thee for the work of Thy hands: For human life, made in Thine image; for the gift of Thy Son, Who redeemed our nature; for the power of the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts; for all Thou dost bestow upon us, we praise Thee, we thank Thee, we bless Thy holy Name. Do Thou protect the life which Thou hast given unto Thy servants: support the aged, guide the young, lift up the failing, and heal the sick. To all people grant Thy truth in its fullness. And may those who are yet unborn all see the light of day and live to give Thee glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Another Prayer for Life

God Our Father, the Giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to Thy loving care. Thou art the rock on which this nation was founded. Thou alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for Thy glory and dwell amongst Thy people.Send Thy Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation's leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind Thy people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Thy will.Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Patroness of our land, may all the leaders, doctors, and mothers of this land reject the culture of death and protect the dignity of the unborn.We ask this through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, Who with Thee and the Holy Ghost doth ever live and reign, one God, world without end. Amen.

Prayer for the Unborn

Heavenly Father, in Thy love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom Thou hast given the gift of life. Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood. Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Thy image - as well as theirs - and is made for eternal life. Dispel their fear and selfishness, and give them hearts to love their babies, to give them birth and all the needed care that a mother can give. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, world without end. Amen.

  1. I suppose it's probably way too late for anybody to see this, but I am an Eastern Orthodox woman with an unborn baby boy. I have been eagerly desiring him since I was very young and am 100% pro-life, so the child is in no danger, at least not from me. However, I am looking for an Orthodox prayer for him to add to my daily prayer rule. Most of the prayers for the unborn I have found assume that they are somebody else's unborn or that they are the unborn in danger of abortion, and are therefore not terribly appropriate. If anybody has any ideas, I could use some help. I'm over at
