Parents Who Had Miscarriages, Stillbirths, or Children Die in Infancy
Jesus, we call upon you. You are our hope. You have the words of eternal life. We have lost our baby, our little one, who we loved so dearly and lost so quickly. We know that you welcome into your kingdom with loving arms all the innocent little ones, pouring out your love and sanctification upon them. Ask your mother to hold our baby in her arms for us until it is our appointed time.
Our grief is enormous Lord. Help us to find healing among those who care for us and for whom we care. We are so saddened Lord and we also are angry. Help us to walk through these natural emotions of loss and emerge with hope, keeping our eyes on your holy face. Help us to embrace each other each new day with your love, the love of your Holy Spirit that sustains us. We pray this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, amen.
Prayer for Women Who Have Had an Abortion
Heavenly Father, your daughter comes before you deeply wounded. We ask you to heal her and show your eternal mercy to her. We ask for your forgiveness Father. Help her to know that in your Son Jesus Christ, nothing is lost. Help her to know that she can have a relationship with Jesus and her child in Heaven, and that her innocent child is with you praying for her healing and forgiveness. Help her to know how much her child still loves her, and forgives her. Send her your Holy Spirit to protect her from temptation Lord. Heal her from her emotional and physical scars, and her wounded spirit Lord. Bring her to you Lord, the only one who can provide us with lasting peace. Let her know how much you love her Lord, and that with you, she is never alone. We thank you Lord for your daughter, and for your loving care for her. We pray this in the holy name of Jesus. Amen.
