|"Praying Each Day of the Week"|
|Written by The Rev. P.J. Southam|
Several years ago I committed to praying daily for an end to abortion both in the United States and around the world. I found a helpful resource on the website of Priests for Life.
These prayers written by Father Terry Gensemer have helped me be focused and specific, rather than just vaguely general. (Though I think there is great power in the prayer: Father, stop this evil, now!)
The seven prayers are on these themes:
I have each of these seven prayers in my daily prayer notebook. Seeing them (and my other prayer commitments) on a page before me helps me to keep my promises to pray. This morning I had a small inspiration. I had been offering regular prayers for Presbyterians Pro-Life. Very occasionally I have prayed for other Pro-Life organizations and people. Today, I have written them down on the page of my seven daily prayers to remind me to be praying more often for them, and for their ministries and work.
Please pray for the work of Presbyterians Pro-Life. As you know of other Pro-Life ministries please pray for them also. And may God give us renewal that we not grow weary in our commitment to prayer.
