Prayer

Father, we thank You for this new day. We bow down with reverence to Your Majesty and reflect upon Your power and great love for all creation.

“Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed ... for His compassions never fail ... they are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself, the Lord is my portion, therefore I will wait for Him.” (Lam. 3)

“In the morning I lay my requests before You and wait in expectation.” (Psalm 5)

On this and every morning, Lord, we ask your Favor and Grace upon this ministry of Friends of the Unborn. We plead that the young women whom you have placed in our care, be under the guidance and protection of Your Holy Spirit this day. We pray that as they hear Your Word during Bible Study in our homes, that the seed may be planted and watered and that You may make it grow and bear fruit.

We ask that their babies and those yet unborn be safe from all harm and that they may come to the knowledge of Your Saving Grace as a fruit of this ministry. Bless each heart O Lord. Protect our shelter homes from harm as we ask that You send Your angels to surround them. May all who dwell within know that Special Grace that flows from You, the Source of Living Water. Now, Lord for all of those who minister to and work with our residents, we pray ... teachers, counselors, directors, friends and especially our Board of Directors. We ask for Your Strength, Wisdom and Discernment, that we may always seek Your Will in planning growth and direction. May we call upon You in difficult times and bless You at all times. Lord, bless our dear benefactors, for without their love, prayers and generosity, this ministry would not survive. We thank You for Your faithfulness through them.

Finally Lord, we pray for any woman who is considering an abortion, especially those who have appointments at the abortuaries today. In Proverbs, You ask us to rescue those staggering toward slaughter. We beg your intervention now, Lord! Touch the hearts of those expectant mothers with the Fire of Your Love. Give them Hope. Give them a reason to continue their pregnancies. Blind them to the lie that abortion is the answer. Lord place your Mighty Hand on them now!

Change our hearts, O Lord. Have mercy on the Unborn. We believe in the power of our prayer as Christians, and as true followers of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hear us O Lord and answer our cry.

Amen.

"... for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven ..."
