April Sundays bidding prayers for pregnant women and the unborn

  • 3rd – “We pray for all unborn children diagnosed with disabilities, we pray for protection for them and their mothers from the pressures of society to have an abortion, and that they would instead experience overwhelming support by all who surround them. Lord hear us”
  • 10th – “As we enter into Holy Week and reflect upon the passion of our Lord, we pray for all those going through their own passion. We pray especially for mothers with unexpected pregnancies in this society that often encourages them to have an abortion, that they would feel love and support from their family and neighbours, and that they would find peace and joy in the midst of their circumstance. Lord hear us”
  • 17th – “As we celebrate the ultimate victory Christ won for us on the cross. We pray for victory in all the church’s efforts. We pray especially for the church’s battle to protect all life, protecting the dignity and wellbeing of human beings, from conception to their natural death. Lord hear us”
  • 24th – “This Wednesday marks 54 years since the 1967 Abortion Act came into effect. As we hope and pray for an end to abortion, we pray especially for our Government, that their ability to support pregnant women would increase and that they would anchor themselves on the desire to protect all human life. Lord hear us”
