Intercessory Prayers: Children - Born and Unborn

 

For orphaned children throughout the world,
and especially those
who are abused or neglected,
that we might work to save them;
We pray to the Lord

For children who are unwanted by their parents,
that God's grace might send others to love
and care for them;
We pray to the Lord

For the children of our country,
especially those who are forgotten or neglected,
that their presence might remind us
of the infinite value of human life;
We pray to the Lord

For every little child:
That we might accept and preserve each one
as a sign of the infinite love of God for us;
We pray to the Lord

For all unborn children:
that our love for them may keep them safe
until the joyous day of their birth;
We pray to the Lord

That the Lord,
who rescues the life of the poor
from the power of the wicked,
might send an angel to guard and protect
all unborn children;
We pray to the Lord

For every little child
and especially for those who
live in their mother's womb,
that they might grow
in the image and likeness of
the God who made them;
We pray to the Lord

For the littlest child in her mother's womb,
that in her life we may see the infinite love of God;
We pray to the Lord

That through the intercession of Saint Vincent,
who spilled his blood for the defense of the Gospel,
the lives of unborn children may be spared;
We pray to the Lord

For all children who have died from abortion,
that God might cradle them in his arms
and grant them eternal peace with him;
We pray to the Lord

For every child who lives in the womb,
that God might send an angel to guard and protect
the innocent and defenseless;
We pray to the Lord

For all unborn children,
and especially for the babies of unmarried mothers,
that God might send an angel to protect them:
We pray to the Lord

For the children who have died from abortion in our nation,
and for their mothers and fathers,
for mercy, peace and the loving embrace of Christ:
We pray to the Lord

For little children
who await the birth of a brother or sister:
that they may learn to cherish
the child in her mother's womb;
We pray to the Lord
