Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

Christians Stand with the Pope in Prayer for Life

Pope Benedict XVI held a prayer vigil on November 27th leading Christians in intercession for the protection of human life and the family. At the conclusion of gathering the Pope offered the following prayer for the unborn in which he asks God to bless families and to inspire society to embrace each and every human life. Though not all Christians see eye to eye on all nuances of theology – we do not all beseech the Saints and Mary with our requests for instance – we DO stand in unified agreement on the core matters of life and faith. In this Christians agree together and pray with Benedict XVI for Life!

Below is the prayer translated into English:

Lord Jesus,
You who faithfully visit and fulfill with your Presence
the Church and the history of men;
You who in the miraculous Sacrament of your Body and Blood
render us participants in divine Life
and allow us a foretaste of the joy of eternal Life;
We adore and bless you.

Prostrated before You, source and lover of Life,
truly present and alive among us, we beg you.

Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life,
make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb
the miraculous work of the Creator,
open our hearts to generously welcoming every child
that comes into life.

Bless all families,
sanctify the union of spouses,
render fruitful their love.

Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies
with the light of your Spirit,
so that peoples and nations may recognize and respect
the sacred nature of life, of every human life.

Guide the work of scientists and doctors,
so that all progress contributes to the integral well-being of the person,
and no one endures suppression or injustice.

Give creative charity to administrators and economists,
so they may realize and promote sufficient conditions
so that young families can serenely embrace
the birth of new children.

Console the married couples who suffer
because they are unable to have children
and in Your goodness provide for them.

Teach us all to care for orphaned or abandoned children,
so they may experience the warmth of your Charity,
the consolation of your divine Heart.

Together with Mary, Your Mother, the great believer,
in whose womb you took on our human nature,
we wait to receive from You, our Only True Good and Savior,
the strength to love and serve life,
in anticipation of living forever in You,
in communion with the Blessed Trinity.

    Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to you too, Ruth! Hope yours was a happy one! Just wanted to say what a blessing “in Every Pew…” Was to me when I read it several years ago! I was an MK – now a grandmother – and the pressures and expectations of being a Super-Christian are tremendous! Even today, living the “ordinary” Christian life, has it’s own pressures. We feel the need to have it all together when many times, I just want to stay in bed with my head covered instead of getting up, getting dressed, going to church and putting on my “happy face.” It’s very tiring pretending to be happy when your heart is breaking over different issues you’re dealing with in your life. Sitting on the couch, being still and real with God is so much easier and feels so much better!
    I hope life is very good for you right now. Thank God, He’s always there for us and loves us even when we don’t “feel” lovable! :)

    It should be thanksgiving every day. I’m reminded of Matthew chapter five.
    Blessed are the poor in spirit
    Blessed are they that mourn
    Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness
    Blessed are the meek
    Blessed are the pure in heart
    Blessed are the peacemakers
    Blessed are the persecuted

    Blessed, blessed, blessed. That’s what we are! We’re always so blessed!

    I remember lying in my room when I was in high school and writing in a journal to my future husband. I’d write all sorts of notes and questions and things I’d wonder or ask this man when I eventually met him. I would wonder where he was and what he was doing and if he was thinking about me too. It has always been such a strong desire in my heart to find a wonderful man to marry, someone who would love me acnd cherish me and appreciate me for the person I am. I always thought I would get married right out of college, just like my parents, so when that plan didn’t work out, I started to get discouraged. A school mate snatched my future husband away from my arms just because she had spiritual powers, all hope was lost to me before i came across the help doctor (prayerstosaverelationship@gmail.com
    ) who i confided in, i told him my long story and he helped me regain back my lover with his prayers which is now my husband today. if you have any problem email the help doctor (prayerstosaverelationship@gmail.com
    ).
