The annual March for the Babies will not go ahead in Melbourne as originally planned for Saturday 9th October because of the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. However, we can still pray for the rights of the unborn babies and their mothers against the 2008 Victorian abortion Law Reform Act, which is considered amongst the most extreme pro-abortion laws in the world. We encourage you to pray the below prayer especially on October 9th.
Prayer for Sanctity of Life
Heavenly Father, we are gathered here today to celebrate the greatest gift conferred by You on all of us, the gift of life itself. We acknowledge that You are the Lord of Life; You alone take it in Your own time.
We pray that You will open the eyes of those who promote abortion, may they realise that life is precious from the the moment of its conception in the mother’s womb through its natural end.
We know that You consider life so precious that You went so far as to sending your son Jesus Christ to suffer as and die that we may live to only on this earth but that we may have eternal life with you at the hour of our death.
Help us grasp the enormity and the sanctity of this gift and grant us the strength to hold on to this truth until You call us to life with You forever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord and Saviour.
