Heavenly Father, thank You for this beautiful Psalm on the sanctity of human life. Thank You that You gave me life, formed my inward parts, and have scheduled every day of my life. How I praise and thank You that I have been born-again into Your family, and have received a new life in Christ. Forgive me individually, and forgive us as a nation for the careless value that we too often place on life, and especially on the value of the unborn child. Bless and protect those that are pregnant and may those that are guilty of wittingly or unwittingly being involved in terminating a pregnancy, experience Your grace and forgiveness in their lives. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 139:13
Heavenly Father, we lift up the many mothers who are today considering an abortion, and pray that in Your grace You would direct them to make a godly and wise decision.
Lord, You know the individual circumstances of each and every woman, and the many arguments they may be using in their decision, of whether of not to abort the babe in their womb.
We pray that You would send godly councillors, wise advisors and caring friends to come alongside them and offer them guidance, hope and comfort, and we ask that in Your grace You would give them reassurance in their hearts, that abortion is not the answer to their problem, and recognise that You are the Author of life and hope.
We pray that You would convict many to discard their thoughts of aborting their baby, and trust You to lead and guide in the future choices they make. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, we know that every good and perfect gift comes from You and that children are a special heritage from the Lord. But Father, we also know that the enemy of our soul seeks to kill and destroy all that is from You, and especially the lives of little babies in the womb.
And so we lift up all women who may be planning to have an abortion, or who have been deceived into thinking that this is a woman’s right, rather than a sin against their creator God, and we pray that You would create in their hearts a desire to do what is right and a realisation of the evil that surrounds the practice of abortion, that they themselves are considering
Bring into the life of each mother those that would give godly counsel and change the hearts of those who have already made a decision to go down the route of abortion.
Instil in the heart of each woman a deep love for the baby they are carrying, and we pray that many may be prompted to turn from their planned abortion and look to the Lord Jesus, for the grace do what is right. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You for the precious little lives of all new-born babies, little toddlers and young children, knowing that each one is special to You and was known in Your heart, even before conception.
Thank You, that You have scheduled every day of each little life, and we praise and thank You for the special plans and purposes You have for every single new-born child, for all babies and infants.
We pray Your loving protection over all babies and their families and pray that many may be brought up to know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Give parents and grandparents and all those that are in any way connected with young babies, the wisdom and grace to care for them in a loving and secure environment.
Guard and protect, guide and provide for each innocent little baby and protect their the hearts and minds from a society that has grown far from the God Who created them and sent His Son to die, so that they might life. This we ask in Jesus' name,
