Follow the words below as we unite our hearts in prayer.
Daily Prayer for Life
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life
and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the
Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself never to be silent,
never to be forgetful of the unborn,
and never to stop defending life
until all my brothers and sisters are protected and loved.
I humbly pray for all children facing abortion in Rockford
and our world.
Please help 40 Days for Life to be a sign of love and hope
for Rockford and our country, so one day soon all
children will be loved and protected,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
