A Prayer for the Unborn

Catholic.org

 

Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given the gift of life.

Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.


Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image, as well as theirs, made for eternal life.

Dispel their fear of selfishness and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother can give.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.

Amen.

Cry Of An Unborn Child

For My Mommy (the cry of an unborn child)

Hello Mommy, this is me, your baby-
I'm just a tiny someone,
Floating in your tummy, feeling snug and warm.
When God made me, He gave me a soul
And sent a special angel to look after me
And an angel to look after you, too.

I'm growing a little bit every day,
And soon I'll get my own fingers and toes.
Once my ears have developed properly,
I'll be able to hear the sound of your voice.
Please Mommy, don't let them hurt me-
I'll do my very best to be good.
I just want a chance to live my life

     and be someone special in yours.

I'll make you breakfast on Mother's Day
And draw pictures, made especially for you.
I'll sing loudly in my first school concert
And try my hardest at everything I do.
There might be days when I'm a bit naughty
And make you scream and shout,
But I'll also give you plenty of hugs and kisses
To cheer you up when you're sad.

Oh Mommy please, just give me a chance...
We don't need to live in a big fancy house,
And I don't need a room filled with toys.
All I ask of you is your love

     and a chance to love you back.
I want to be able to call you "Mom,"

     and hear you say I'm yours.

I long to feel the grass tickle my toes
And the warmth of the sun on my back.
I want to experience the excitement of my first day at school
And the joy of playing with my friends.
Don't listen to the voices saying it'll be easier when I'm gone.
God chose YOU to be my mommy,
And He chose me to teach you about LOVE!

So please mommy, don't let me down.
I know God and His angels will help.
Be strong for me... hold on to me...
You'll be grateful in eternity!
