Intercessory Prayers: Public Servants and Legal System

 

For an end to all laws
which legalize the taking of a human life,
that our nation might embrace truth and justice;
We pray to the Lord

That justice, truth, and a love for the gift of life,
might inspire all legislators, governors, and our President;
We pray to the Lord

For President (current president), the members of Congress
and the Supreme Court,
that they may have the courage and wisdom
to establish and promote laws
which protect the dignity of human life
from conception until natural death;
We pray to the Lord

For our President,
our congressmen and senators,
the Justices of our Supreme Court,
and all who seek to foster
principles on which this country was founded;
We pray to the Lord

For President (current President),
that God might guide and inspire his heart
with a love for the Gospel of life;
We pray to the Lord

For all those who govern us,
especially President (current President)
the members of Congress and of the Supreme Court
that they may frame laws that are life-giving,
protecting all those who are unable to protect themselves
We pray to the Lord

For (your U.S. Representative), and (your U.S. Senator),
and all the leaders of our country:
that God may make them strong and effective defenders
of the poor, the unborn and the forgotten;
We pray to the Lord

For the justices of our Supreme Court,
and the legislators of our Congress,
that the silent voice of the unborn child,
might move their hearts and minds;
We pray to the Lord

For those who work to change our laws
to reflect the Gospel of Life,
that God might inspire and shepherd them;
We pray to the Lord

For all young professionals, especially doctors,
lawyers and those in public service:
that they might come to know and cherish
the truth of the Gospel of Life;
We pray to the Lord

For a growing respect for life among the leaders of our government:
that our laws might respect the right to life and liberty
of every human being from conception to natural death;
We pray to the Lord
