Choose Life That You May Live!

God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Israel, righteous and holy Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, You are the just and true judge of all the Earth. We come before You, interceding for the innocent and the defenseless, praying for those who cannot cry out on their own behalf! O Dayan ha-Emet – True Judge, we pray that you would judge truly and bring righteousness, justice and fairness!

Inspire us, and all the righteous, to continue to fight the good fight. Help us to fulfill our responsibility to deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, to hold them back.

If we say, “see, we did not know this,” do You who weighs the hearts, not consider it? And do You who keeps our soul, not know it? And will You not render to man according to his work? Energize us and re-energize us to do what we can to protect the babies growing in their mothers’ wombs!

We intercede for all unborn children, and especially for the babies of unmarried mothers, that You might spare them and protect them!

We pray that this nation, and other nations, would acknowledge that abortion is murder, turn from this terrible sin, and find atonement.

We pray for all the members of our supreme court, that You will turn their hearts toward You, and grant them wisdom, love for your truth, and the desire to protect these human beings!

We pray that judges would be appointed who are committed to the sanctity of life.

We ask You that You would help our leaders turn to You, and that they might be good, loving and virtuous. We ask that leaders might be elected who are righteous and pro-life!

We pray for all who work for the pro-life cause, that you might strengthen them, and reward them for their efforts.

We ask you to help those who are suffering after having had an abortion, that they would find atonement, and understand that no one is beyond the reach of Your grace and forgiveness.

Adon Olam – Master of the universe, You rule below and above; You cause death and You cause life. The life of every being is in Your hand. You are the father of the fatherless, the husband of the widow, and the strength of the oppressed. Deliver those who are the weakest among us, who are being severely oppressed! O You who are full of mercy, have compassion on the children in the womb!

Hear our prayers O Lord, and end this holocaust of the children! Reverse these evil decrees and spare those in the womb! Let not the wickedness of man prevail!

Baruch Ata Adonai, Elohaynu Melech ha-olam, Dayan ha-Emet! Blessed are You O Lord our God, King of the universe, the true judge and the judge of the truth!
