1. THANK GOD FOR THE GIFT OF LIFE
Creator God, we praise You that all human life is made in Your image, precious in Your sight. Please would you help us to speak up for the voiceless. Amen.
2. REMEMBER WOMEN WHO ARE VULNERABLE
Father, please meet the emotional and practical needs of anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy with no real support. Thank You for individuals and centres who offer a listening ear to those with post-abortion concerns. Please open more doors for this healing ministry. Amen.
3. RESIST ATTEMPTS TO CHANGE THE LAW TO LIBERALISE ABORTION ACROSS THE UK
God of justice, please frustrate any plans to liberalise the law and grant strategic wisdom to pro-life politicians and others seeking to preserve important safeguards and protect the unborn. Amen.
4. PRAY FOR THOSE INVOLVED IN ABORTIONS
Lord, please speak truth to medical staff taking part in terminations; that they may comprehend Your sorrow and pain. Help women who are coerced into abortion against their will. Comfort those in distressing situations where a pregnancy must end, to save the mother. Amen.
5. INTERCEDE FOR MEDICAL STAFF TO RETAIN THEIR RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN ABORTION
Holy Spirit, please grant insight, courage and favour to doctors, nurses, midwives and others feeling pressurised to participate in terminations even after expressing their beliefs. May their freedom of conscience be protected. Amen.
6. PRAY THAT THE HARMFUL EFFECTS OF CHANGING THE LAW WILL BE UNDERSTOOD
Lord of grace and truth, help us to present strong persuasive evidence to show that liberalising abortion may increase risks to women’s health and wellbeing. Amen.
7. PRAY AGAINST THE PRACTICE OF ABORTION BECAUSE OF GENDER OR DISABILITY
Creator God, please prevent abortions of gender or disability. Strengthen parents expecting a child diagnosed with a life-limiting condition. Amen.
8. PRAY FOR ALL MEN TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
Lord, if more fathers were prepared to stand by their unborn child’s mother there would be tens of thousands fewer abortions. Please help men in this situation to be honourable and mature. Amen.
9. LAMENT THE ONE MILLION ABORTED LIVES
Heavenly Father, we grieve for the innocent victims of a worldwide disregard for human life – over a million are aborted every month. We pray for change in countries around the world where there are high abortion rates. Amen.
10. GIVE THANKS FOR EVERY BABY WHO IS RESCUED FROM BEING ABORTED
Lord, we give thanks for the many children who could have been aborted but were given the gift of life instead. Pray for God’s blessing on them and their parents as they grow. Amen.
