Lord, God of all creation, Father of the human family and source of all life, we give you thanks for the gift of life in this world and the promise of life eternal. Inspire and guide all people of good will to defend and promote the dignity of human life from the first moment of conception until last natural breath.
We pray that all people might recognize the responsibilities that come with the resources of contemporary technology. As we use these gifts, may we always act in accord with your plan of love for the human family.
We ask this through Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
