Lord, we pray for all those who counsel pregnant women. Give them special gilts of the Holy Spirit so that they may find right words to help each woman who comes to them realize that she carries within her a new life formed in Your image. Lead women who face troubled pregnancies to Your counsellors. Never let anyone who counsels against abortion be discouraged by failure. Never let Your counselors rest in their efforts to save children. Bless their efforts so they may succeed.

(Seventh in a series of pro-life prayers presented by The Interim to remind readers of the importance of prayer on overcoming the evils of abortion and euthanasia).
