Prayer for a certain yong woman

Hi all,

I don't generally post prayer requests here, but a friend of mine sent me this last night in email and I wanted to post it here for anyone who would pray for this young woman.

A woman is asking everyone to pray for this 18 year old girl who has decided to go through with an abortion. Everyone it seems abandoned her and it seems she believes this is her only choice.

*** URGENT PRAYER REQUEST *** FROM Carla Stream --- Please continue to pray for this young girl. Her father has said she can't live with him if she doesn't have the abortion. The mother said it is her decision. She has not had an ultrasound, she has not sought any other rescources or support. Only Planned Parenthood....... This 18 year old has decided to have the abortion but has to wait 48 hours. PLEASE PRAY!

Here is a short prayer for the end of abortion:

Heavenly Father, in Your
love for us, protect against the
wickedness of the devil, those
helpless little ones to whom You
have given the gift of life.

Touch with pity the hearts of
those women with child in our
world today who are
not thinking of motherhood.

Help them to see that the child
they carry is made in Your
image - as well as theirs -
made for eternal life.

Dispel their fear and selfishness
and give them true womanly
hearts to love their babies and
give them birth and all the
needed care that a mother alone
can give.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Your Son, Our Lord,
Who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
forever and ever. Amen
