The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose; Beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul.
Let Us Pray
David’s Psalm 23 imagines a tranquil setting where we will want for nothing and will be enveloped in the peace of God’s love. Dear Lord, we pray that our unborn children will all know the peace of a mother’s womb where it is quiet and restful and each receives comfort from the beat of the other’s heart. Please remove all brutality from our world, but, in particular, that place where a child should be most safe. We ask that you put an end to the violent deaths our children suffer through abortion, and instead let them experience the peace you have offered all the world.
