"A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Through special initiatives and in daily prayer, may an impassioned plea rise to God, the Creator and lover of life, from every Christian community, from every group and association, from every family and from the heart of every believer."
- Blessed Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, no. 100
Prayer to End AbortionSt. Maximilian Kolbe, hear this prayer of supplication that I address to you with confidence.
I honor your life that was guided by unshakable faith in the mystery of the Incarnation. I admire your public witness for the sanctity of life when you offered yourself to save a fellow prisoner.
Please intercede for the unborn children who are in danger of abortion. Please move the consciences of those who are contemplating abortion. Please move to repentance the women and men who have chosen abortion over the gift of life. Please comfort the women who suffer from the post-abortion trauma and inspire them to seek spiritual and psychological help. Please sustain the courage and wisdom of those in the pro-life movement, so that they may be peaceful witnesses to the sanctity of life. Please move the hearts of our lawmakers and citizens so that the scourge of abortion will no longer be the law of the land.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.
St. Maximilian Kolbe, patron saint of the pro-life movement, pray for us.
