Prayers
  • Prayer To End The Use Of The Death Penalty
    Merciful Father, we ask your blessing on all we do to build a culture of life. Hear our prayers for those impacted by the death penalty.
    We pray for all people, that their lives and dignity as children of a loving God may be respected and protected in all stages and circumstances.
    We pray for victims of violence and their families, that they may experience our love and support and find comfort in your compassion and in the promise of eternal life.
