Life issues are all around us, many of those we love, serve and see everyday are dealing with very real needs such as teen pregnancy, caring for elderly or terminally ill family members, infertility, ethical questions about health care treatment, special needs adoptions and the list goes on. And since 1973, when Roe legalized abortion many people have fought for the rights of the unborn. Anglicans for Life recognizes that you, in whatever role you serve, need to have resources, encouragement and tools available so you can be effective in modeling the love of Christ to those in need and to stand against the culture of death.
We have tried to identify and provide specific resources for the special needs you face in your role as a pastor, leader, parent, student or lay person. We invite you to team up with us and make a difference for life and in the lives of those around you!
PRAYER FOR LIFE
Lord God, thank You for creating human life in Your image.
Thank You for my life and the lives of those I love.
Thank You for teaching us through Scripture the value You place on life.
Help me to uphold the sanctity of life in my church and community.
Give me the strength to stand up to those forces
that seek to destroy the lives of those most vulnerable,
the unborn, the infirm and the elderly.
Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of respecting life.
I commit myself to protecting and defending the sacredness of life
according to Your will, through Christ our Lord. Amen.Anglicans for Life405 Frederick AvenueSewickley, PA 15143
