A Prayer at the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

For You From The Word

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them. (Isaiah 42:16)

For You To Think About

Pray this prayer for our nation as we approach the anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 22, the landmark legislation that gave women the right to choose an abortion.

man praying with sunset in backgroundHeavenly Father,

I praise You for being our Creator! You made and formed each of us (Psalm 119:73). You knit us together (Psalm 139:13). Your Almighty breath of gives life (Job 33:4).

I praise You for giving us a choice. You tell us what is right: not to put the innocent to death (Exodus 23:7). You set before us life and death. You tell us to choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19).

The way our nation has chosen may seem right to men, but it leads to death (Proverbs 14:12). On behalf of my nation, I repent of our sin of taking life that belongs only to You. You promise that if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Now at the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I humbly ask for repentance, forgiveness, and cleansing for America.

You promise You will lead the blind by ways they have not known (Isaiah 42:16). The way of choosing life is unfamiliar for many Americans. Turn our nation back to You, even when it is unfamiliar, difficult, and uncomfortable. Let us choose life. Begin in me and use me. (Isaiah 6:8).
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
