Pope Benedict XVI’s Prayer for the Unborn
Lord Jesus,You who faithfully visit and fulfill with your Presence the Church and the historyof men; You who in the miraculous Sacrament of your Body and Blood render usparticipants in divine Life and allow us a foretaste of the joy of eternal Life; Weadore and bless you.Prostrated before You, source and lover of Life, truly present and alive among us,we beg you.Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life, make us capable of seeing in thefruit of the maternal womb the miraculous work of the Creator, open our hearts togenerously welcoming every child that comes into life.Bless all families, sanctify the union of spouses, render fruitful their love.Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies with the light of your Spirit,sothat peoples and nations may recognize and respect the sacred nature of life, of every human life.Guide the work of scientists and doctors, so that all progress contributes to theintegral well-being of the person, and no one endures suppression or injustice.Give creative charity to administrators and economists, so they may realize andpromote sufficient conditions so that young families can serenely embrace the birthof new children.Console the married couples who suffer because they are unable to have childrenand in Your goodness provide for them.Teach us all to care for orphaned or abandoned children, so they may experiencethe warmth of your Charity, the consolation of your divine Heart.Together with Mary, Your Mother, the great believer, in whose womb you took onour human nature, we wait to receive from You, our Only True Good and Savior,the strength to love and serve life, in anticipation of living forever in You, incommunion with the Blessed Trinity.
Sorrowful Mysteries
The Agony in the Garden
 Let us pray for mothers and fathers who are in agony because theyare tempted to abort a child. May they be given the good news thatthere are alternatives, and may they make use of the help that isavailable.
The Scourging
 As Christ's flesh was torn by the instruments of those who scourged Him, so thebodies of babies in the womb are torn by the instruments of the abortionists. Let uspray that abortionists may repent of these acts of child-killing.
The Crowning With Thorns
 Jesus suffered the pain of thorns in His head, and did so silently. We pray for themothers and fathers of aborted children. So many of them suffer deep grief andregret over a choice they can never reverse. So many suffer in silence, becauseothers tell them it's no big deal.
The Carrying of the Cross
 Jesus was not condemned by the power of wicked people. He wascondemned because of the silence of good people. Silence alwayshelps the oppressor, never the victim. Let us pray that we may neverbe silent about abortion, but rather will clearly speak up to savebabies from death.
The Crucifixion
 As we ponder the death of Christ, let us remember the many women who have diedfrom so-called "safe, legal" abortions. Let us ask forgiveness and mercy for them.May their memory save other women from making this tragic mistake.Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Hail our life, our Sweetness and our hope. Tothee to we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs,mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, O most graciousAdvocate, thine eyes of Mercy towards us, and after this our exile, show unto usthe Blessed fruit of thy whom Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.Pray for us O Holy Mother of GodThat we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.Let us pray, O God, whose only begotten Son by his life, death and Resurrectionhas purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant we beseech thee, thatmeditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed VirginMary, we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promisethrough the same Christ our Lord, Amen.Holy Michael, the archangel, defend us in this day of battle. Be out safeguardagainst the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humblypray and do though O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, By the power of God, thrust
