All powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

We praise and thank you for your love and care
for the human family.
Hear our prayer for our country that its Constitution may continue to protect the unborn.

Pour out upon us the power of your love,
That we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live
as brothers and sisters, harming no one. Amen.
