With one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Romans 15:6, NIV)
The National Day of Prayer , held annual the first Thursday in May, mobilizes Americans to pray for each other and the nation.
On that day you can focus your prayers on women, children, and families. You invite God’s movement among those who face an unplanned pregnancy when you pray for His protection and strength, their unborn, and unity in their relationships.
A prayer for protection and strength
Lord, you promise protection for the weak (Psalm 41:1-2). Preserve the lives of those who face an unplanned pregnancy, along with their unborn. Strengthen them physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
A prayer for the unborn
Lord, allow pregnant women to love their unborn children devotedly and unreservedly from conception, through birth, and in their upbringing. Let them honor their unborn (Romans 12:10). Help them care for themselves and be healthy and strong, and in so doing care for their unborn as well.
A prayer for unity
Lord, when a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand (Mark 3:25). Allow a pregnant woman, her partner, and their partners be united in their decision for what is best for the child and the situation. Lead our nation to be unified in a respect for life.
Call our nation to fall before You in prayer. Turn our hearts to You. Let us demonstrate Your heart towards those who face an unplanned pregnancy, giving them support to choose life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
