Lord Jesus, Almighty and All-knowing God,
recent events have advanced against the dignity of life.
Arrogant in his ways, the leader of this nation,
believes that he can decide on the matter of life and death.
Years ago, King Herod showed no respect for human life,
ordering the murder of all the children under age two,
they being snatched from their mother's arms mercilessly.
Nowadays, the United States President, lacking in morals,
supports the murder of the unborn in different ways.
Look down upon these little souls,
they being torn out of the womb of their mothers,
by medical tools that were invented to save lives.
Lord God, we beseech You on behalf of the unborn
to transform the heart of President Barack Obama,
that he may come to a moral understanding of what he is doing.
May he consequently condemn and stop, here and abroad,
all support and funding towards all forms of abortion,
Mary Immaculate, Mother of the Child Jesus,
turn your eyes towards the unborn innocent,
who cry to the Heavenly Throne for justice.
Beg your Son, the Lord Jesus,
to end the heartless killing of millions.
May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
