(The Elizabeth Ministry Prayer)


Creator God,

I pledge to truly celebrate the gift of each child conceived and born, and fully mourn each miscarriage, abortion, stillbirth and infant or child death. I will be a witness to my belief in the dignity and worth of all life, by honoring sexuality, treasuring the gift of fertility, promoting chaste living, uplifting the sanctity of marriage, helping those struggling with unhealthy lifestyles and sexual sins, supporting those suffering infertility problems, encouraging those in the adoptive process, and assisting families with prenatal, infant or child crisis, illness or special need. I will be a strong and consistent voice for life in my home, my church, my community, and my world.





(Prayer from Woman Word, Miriam Therese Winter) 


We thank You, O God Within and Beyond us,

for linking our lives in so many ways,

making a chain of hope and compassion

long enough and strong enough to circle the globe.

When we walk hand in hand, when we work side by side,

the impossible becomes the next challenge before us,

and we know we can do what we dared not attempt.

May mountains of misery melt with Your Word of concern

which we put into action, and may there never again be despair

or denial of Your Saving grace.
