Prayer for the Supreme Court:
Holy Trinity, Source of Life and Truth, we entrust our nation to You. We ask for mercy for the decades of legalized abortion that has been permitted in our land. We ask that the sacredness of every human life would be protected and upheld both in law and in culture.
In a special way we commend to you the Justices of the Supreme Court. Please grant them clarity, wisdom, and courage to judge according to truth and right reason. Overthrow, at last, by Your power, the scourge of abortion in our land and usher in a new era of protection for the unborn.
By the power of Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection, may Your perfect justice be established on earth. Amen.
