This week, the pro-life advocacy group Priests for Life invited Christians everywhere to participate in a 50-day prayer challenge. Beginning on the Saturday evening before Easter, believers are encouraged to celebrate the period between Christ’s Resurrection and Pentecost as a “season of life.”
During this special season, the Priests for Life are asking Christians to pray the “Easter Prayer for Life” every day leading up to Pentecost Sunday (June 4) in an effort to “counteract the most widespread and violent attack on human life in our day, which is abortion.”
The prayer reads as follows:
Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the Author of Life,
Who died and now lives forevermore.
May we who work and pray
That children in the womb may be protected
Always draw strength, confidence, and joy
From Your victory over death,
For you are Lord forever and ever. Amen.
A Spanish version of the prayer is also available on the group’s website.
