Prayer of a Grandparent who did not know of the abortion of a grandchild

Lord of time and eternity,
You guide the course of human events
With the loving hand
Of your Providence.

Lord, as we live our lives each day,
There is so much we do not know.
And yet you know every detail of our lives,
And you never cease to love us
And to call us to trust in you.

Lord, I pray today for my peace
And for your blessing on my family.
I pray for my child(ren) and my grandchild(ren).

Lord, heal the pain that is in my heart
Because of the abortion that occurred.
Grant that I may trust you more each day
As I entrust my grandchild(ren) to you.

Bring my entire family
The mercy and peace
That your Son died and rose to bring to us.

And amidst our own pain and healing,
May we reach out to others
Who need our help and reassurance.

Thank you for the gift of life
And the blessing of salvation.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
