Heavenly Father, You give us the gift of freedom to love and to follow in your ways and commands. Some parents choose to abuse this freedom by destroying the gift of life, which You have given to their offspring. Please forgive these people who destroy human life by aborting their unborn babies. Give these unborn children the opportunity to enjoy You for all eternity. Assist me in being one in solidarity with Your loved ones by taking to heart the words of Your Son, "whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." (Mt.25-40)
Therefore, allow me today, Father, to adopt spiritually an unborn child and offer my prayers, works, joys and sufferings for that little one, so that the child will be able to be born and live for Your greater honor and glory. We pray this in Jesus' name, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
