Eternal God, You have revealed Yourself as the Father of all Life. We praise
You for the Fatherly care which You extend to all creation, and especially to
us, made in Your image and likeness.
Father, extend Your hand of protection to those threatened by abortion, and
save them from its destructive power. Give Your strength to all fathers, that
they may never give in to the fears that may tempt them to facilitate abortions.
Bless our families and bless our land, that we may have the joy of welcoming
and nurturing the life of which You are the source and the Eternal Father. Amen.
