37 Days of Prayer for America – “If my people will turn from their wicked ways…”

If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT

Prayer for Repentance and Mercy

abortion-is-our-national-sinFather, you have created us in body and soul to honor you and our neighbor and to receive honor and respect in return.

Our bodies are sacred. they reflect you, our Creator. And we hold sacred the bodies of all the children in the womb.

Lord, we are saddened that these children are being killed, and saddened again that their body parts are being harvested and sold.

Have mercy on our nation. Have mercy on those who are perpetrating these evils. As more and more people become aware of this, turn their hearts towards you, the Fountain of life and love.

Give consolation to all who have had abortions, and give wisdom to our public officials that they may respond adequately to the corruption found in the abortion industry.

Grant that we, the People of Life and the People of Mercy, may recommit ourselves to building a nation without abortion and without the many evils that flow from it.

May we choose life; may we choose mercy; may we choose your Kingdom! Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

–Rev. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life

+ In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
