Prayer for the Children: Family Reflection Video

Celebrating family life

Today is a day of prayer for the protection of unborn children.

This day follows a tremendous turnout for the March for Life in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, California, and other cities around the United States. What is always striking to me are the young people who show the world by their presence and prayer that the protection of human life is worth appealing to both God and people.

God sees each person who has made the effort to bring attention to protect human life. I saw an interview with an actress who recently starred in a movie about abortion titled Unplanned. The actress talks about how close her own mother came to aborting the future actress’s life. She talks about what this could have meant for her, her husband, and now her children. Today is one for recognition and prayer for pregnant mothers, future fathers, and all their loved ones.

How have the children in your family changed your life? The lives of others?

We pray in solidarity today for these children to be protected, Lord hear our prayer!
