Prayer for Ireland

On May 25, 2018, people in Ireland voted to remove the protection that their Constitution gave to children in the womb, opening the way for laws permitting abortion.

We need to continue to pray for Ireland, that the pro-life citizens and lawmakers will stop the advance of this holocaust before it goes any further.

Oh God of Life,
You have conquered death
Through the death and Resurrection
Of your Son, Jesus Christ,
And you have made us the People of Life.

For many years, you have blessed the great land of Ireland
With the beauty of the Catholic Faith
And with the commitment to defend 
The lives of the most defenseless children.

Lord, we ask you today
To protect that commitment
From the actions of those
Who have voted to abandon it.

Preserve Ireland from the lie
That abortion is ever a benefit to anyone.
And help people everywhere to understand
That the right to life is not subject to votes.

Even now, Lord God,
Bring about a change of heart
Among the citizens and leaders of Ireland.
Prevent the advance of any legislation
That would unleash the killing of children.

Rather, inspire your people in Ireland
To pass new laws to protect the unborn.

Send the Holy Spirit
And bring Ireland a New Pentecost,
That just as the Holy Spirit is our Advocate
So we may always be advocates 
For the weakest among us,
The children yet unborn.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
