How Do You Specifically
Pray to End Abortion?
By Father Frank Pavone
When we’re praying against abortion, we already know the
mind of God. We know his will. We know his heart. It is for life. God is life.
So we are praying for something that we already know.
We’re aligning ourselves with the perfect will of God that the killing of these children would completely cease.
When we talk about praying against abortion, however, we’re talking
about something very, very specific, namely, that the actual killing of this group of people, the children still in the womb, would stop.
We pray that the protection of their lives would be restored, that the recognition that they are our brothers and sisters, worthy of protection, would, again, be restored to the minds of hearts of everybody in society, at every
level of influence. . . (We pray) that very specific acts of violence would stop . . . that the abortionist’s instruments would no longer go towards their body to rip them apart . . . that the mothers going into those abortion facilities would
literally turn around and come out . . . that those babies would be spared . . . that those lives would be saved . . . and that this evil would no longer be permitted.
