This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am wonderfully made; awesome are your works” (Psalm 139:13-14).
Reflection: This psalm not only declares that God made us in the womb, but also that the life in the womb belongs completely to him, is called by him, and is destined to fulfill a plan given only to that individual from all eternity.
Prayer: Lord, what kind of an act is it to destroy a life by abortion? Forgive those who deny the child’s right to live, and destroy your intricate handiwork and plan initiated from all eternity. Amen.
