Prayer for Reverence for Life


Almighty God, 
giver of all that is good, 
we thank You for the precious gift 
of human life:





for the life in the womb, coming from 
Your creative power


 





 

for the life of children, making us glad 
with their freshness 
and promise











 
for the life of 
young people, 
hoping for 
        a better world

 














for the 
life of the handicapped and disabled, 
    teaching us humility
 
 








           

for the life
 of the elderly,
 witnessing to the ageless
 values of
 patience and  wisdom.





 
Like Blessed Mary, 
may we always 
say "YES" to Your gift.   
May we defend it and promote it 
from conception to its natural end.   
And bring us at last, O Father, 
to the fullness of eternal life 
in Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen
