A Prayer for Nellie Gray

Father of Life,
You have created each human being

To reflect your glory
From the moment of fertilization.

You have also planted in our hearts
The awareness that no human power
Can authorize the taking
Of a single human life.

You have stirred the hearts of your people

To respond to evils like the holocaust
And you have awakened their consciences
To likewise battle the evil of abortion.

We thank you for the pro-life movement
And for all its leaders.
We thank you for the life and example
Of Miss Nellie Gray

And for the work she did

In leading the Annual March for Life

And reminding us all
About the Life Principles which shape our movement.

Lord, give us new strength.
Bring us together in greater unity.
Give success to the work of our hands
As we defend every preborn child.

May we speak and pray,

May we write and march,

May we lobby and vote,

And may we see the victory of life!

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    May the souls of the millions of unborn victims of abortion who were lost, despite the heroic efforts of Nellie Gray, joyfully welcome her into eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Virgin Mary, and St Joseph.

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
