The Mealtime Prayer to End Abortion that’s Going to Take Over the World

Steve Rhodes

Brantly Millegan - published on 09/30/13

This simple prayer can be added to the end of your usual meal time prayer and ensures you're praying for life every day. Are you with me?

Here’s something small that our family has been doing for a little while now. Before every meal, after thanking God for the food, we add this short prayer:

"We pray for an end to all threats to human life and dignity, especially abortion."

That's it. Pretty simple. This has been a great habit for us for a few reasons:

First, it keeps us praying for an end to abortion, and all other attacks to human life and dignity, every day, several times a day.

Second, in our everyday life we do not actually see these injustices occurring, so the prayer serves as a reminder to us that these injustices exist.

Third, because of the above, it encourages us to do something to correct these injustices.

If you think it's a good idea, start doing it yourself, and then pass it on to your friends. Just imagine what could happen if every Christian in the country added this to their mealtime prayers.
