Prayer of a Mom who Lost a Child to Abortion
by Fr. Frank Pavone
Lord God of Peace,
I thank you for your love for me,
Which is more tender than the love
Of a mother for her child.
I thank you for your
Which is more generous
Than the forgiveness human beings can offer.
Thank you for helping
me to know
That I am not my abortion.
Rather, I am your daughter, Beloved and Redeemed,
For whom your Son would have died
If I were the only one who needed salvation.
Save me always
From the menacing voice of useless guilt and the
oppressive force of shame.
Rather, lift me up in
the light, peace, and grace
Of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ,
Who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen
