Today, May 25, people in Ireland will vote whether or not to repeal the 8th Amendment of the Irish Constitution that protects the right to life of mothers and their preborn babies.
If the "yes" votes win, an uncountable number of innocent babies will be legally slaughtered in Ireland day in and day out well into the future.
This week, American Life League—along with many others both here and abroad—ask you to join in prayer for the rest of today and this evening!
If you are Catholic, we recommend the rosary and this prayer to Our Lady of Knock:
Lord Jesus, you are the source and lover of life. Reawaken in us respect for every human life. Help us to see in each child the marvelous work of our Creator. Open our hearts to welcome every child as a unique and wonderful gift. Guide the work of doctors, nurses and midwives. May the life of a mother and her baby in the womb be equally cherished and respected. Help those who make our laws to uphold the uniqueness and sacredness of every human life, from the first moment of conception to natural death. Give us wisdom and generosity to build a society that cares for all. Together with Mary, your Mother, in whose womb you took on our human nature, help us to choose life in every decision we take. We ask this in the joyful hope of eternal life with you, and in the communion of the Blessed Trinity. Amen. Our Lady of Knock, pray for us. All the Saints of Ireland, pray for us. Amen.
If you are not Catholic, you can pray any formal or informal prayer from your heart to God for the babies in Ireland.
