Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my 
brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice 
that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today I commit myself never to be 
silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop 
defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, 
and our nation once again becomes
a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

A Pro-Life Prayer for Our President and Public Officials

Lord God, Author of Life and Source of Eternal Life,

Move the hearts of all our public officials and especially our President
to fulfill their responsibilities worthily and well to all those entrusted to their care.

Help them in their special leadership roles, to extend the mantle of protection
to the most vulnerable, especially the defenseless unborn
whose lives are threatened with extermination by an indifferent society.

Guide all public officials by your wisdom and grace to cease supporting any law
that fails to protect the fundamental good that is human life itself,
which is a gift from God and parents.

You are the Protector and Defender of the lives of the innocent unborn.
Change the hearts of those who compromise the call to protect and defend life.
Bring our nation to the values that have made us a great nation,
a society that upholds the value of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.

Mary, the Mother of the living, help us to bear witness to the Gospel of Life
with our lives and our laws, through Christ, Our Lord.



The Helpers of God’s Precious Infants are a group of people committed to maintaining a loving and prayerful presence outside of the abortion mills where God’s children are silenced. WE PRAY in reparation for the injustice being performed on their tiny bodies and remain beneath their “cross” as they are aborted. We pray for their parents, grandparents, the abortionist and his staff, that they may have a conversion of heart. WE WITNESS to those passing by as they become aware of the tragedy happening in their neighborhood. WE COUNSEL mothers scheduled for abortion, offering them information about their “choice” and telling of all the help available - financial, medical and spiritual, so that they do not feel they have to choose abortion as a “solution.” We promise to pray for them, and when their choice is made, we rejoice with them if they choose life, or mourn with them, offering God’s loving help and forgiveness, if they have chosen to end the life within them.

Would you spend some time with the little babies in your neighborhood before they are aborted, knowing that you might even be able to save some lives? We Helpers in Lee County are present at the Fort Myers Women’s Health Center every day they are open for abortions, that is Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. If you are able to join us in prayer, call Judy Minahan at 287-1237 for details. Training for Sidewalk Counseling is available too. And if you’re physically unable to be present with us, unite with us in prayer by enrolling as a Spiritual Supporter. All God’s miracles come through prayer. Please come, pray, and watch what our mighty God can do.
