Heavenly Father, 
The Creator of the Universe, 
The Creator of our World, and
The Creator of each one of us,

You formed us while we were in our mother’s womb,
You have known us before we knew ourselves.

You have told us in Psalm 139 that you knit us together in our mother’s womb, and that we have been fearfully and wonderfully made.

You have told us in the Gospel of John that we are your children, born of the Holy Sprit and given eternal life.

It is You, Lord, who brings forth life
It is You, Lord who breathes life into every living thing.
You are the creator and sustainer of all we know.

And Lord, you have warned us in Proverbs 6 that you hate and call an abomination the hands that shed innocent blood.

You have told us in Leviticus that the sacrifice of a child profanes your Name.

You have told us that You will not leave unpunished the sacrifice of children.

Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us for taking the lives of over 55 million precious babies.

Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us for snuffing out the beauty of your creation.

Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us for abandoning your Laws and Commandments.

Heavenly Father, I plead the blood of your Son over my sin and the sins of our Nation. God end abortion and send revival to the United States of America.

Father, we come in Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ asking you to intervene in the affairs of our nation.

Change the hearts of our leaders, 
bring them to repentance.

Change the hearts of our judges, 
bring them to repentance.

Change the hearts of our government officials and policy makers, 
bring them to repentance.

Change the hearts of those in the media, 
bring them to repentance.

Change the hearts of our religious leaders, 
bring them to repentance.

Change the hearts of our citizens, b
ring them to repentance.

Change our hearts, O God, 
bring us to repentance.

Help us all to turn from our wicked and evil ways, thoughts, and actions – those things which violate your commandments – and help us to follow in the ways of true justice and right living.

Start with us – start with me!

Father, we come in the Name of Jesus, asking you to help us stop abortion in our nation.

We ask in the Name of Jesus that it be stopped.

Father, we ask that you pour out your Holy Spirit on this nation and blow the Spirit of life throughout the land.

And Father, we pray for all those young women who right now find themselves expecting a baby, guide them to one of your servants who will guide them toward life, and not death.

In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
