My heart is torn apart. I do not understand why this happened to me. I have no strength left in me. I have no consolation in my heart and I cry to You for help Father. The Bible says that the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Comfort me Lord, because all my dreams are shattered. My hope is lost and I find total darkness in front of me.
Lord, help me to bear this agony and the mental stress due to this and restore to me, Your joy and peace of mind. I know that Your ways are wonderful. Lead me by Your Spirit into deeper spiritual experiences and make my life a fruitful one. Lord, I commend every thought and every situation of mine into Your loving hands. Thank You Father for being with me during these hard times and for Your assurances of joy and peace.
Source of all mercy and love,
out of love for us you sent your Son,
and willed that blood and water
flow from his side to cleanse us of sin
and restore lost innocence.
Hear the cry of each woman who mourns
the loss of her child to abortion.
Forgive her sin, restore her to your grace,
and still the terror of her heart
with a peace beyond all understanding.
Through the intercession
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of all tenderness and our Mother,
strengthen her faith in you.
Give her the consolation to believe
that her child is now living in the Lord.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
who conquered sin and death,
and who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

“Dear Heavenly Father,
I have made a mistake and realize that now. I have made the choice to end the life that you were creating inside my womb. This miracle came at a time when I felt overwhelmed with so many issues and problems.
I treated your miracle as one of those problems that needed to be “solved”. Since doing this, I have felt a sadness in my heart that words cannot describe. I feel empty, lost and I know now that in my moment of confusion, I made the wrong choice.
Lord, it is so hard when I realize the scope and magnitude of what I have done for me to forgive myself. I wish I could take back my choice and I know that the world will never know the wonderful life that was starting to grow in my belly.
I am more than sorry, Lord. I am grieved at what I have done. I ask for your forgiveness, and I receive it. I need your love to heal the wounds on my heart that I have created for myself. Comfort me and cover my loss with your presence.
Take what I did, and create a situation where I can grow and help others deal with the pain I am currently feeling right now.
In this pain, I realize what really matters now. I took the precious blessings I had lightly and for granted, and now that it is gone, I realize what a gift I had at my disposal. Forgive me for disposing them.
More than anything else, I need to forgive myself. I do not see this happening, but with you, anything is possible. I do not want to waste my life wallowing in regret over things I cannot change.
Help me to move beyond this and build a life that is richer from my experience and wiser from leaning on you for guidance. I did not listen to your warnings and I do not want to do that again.
Thank you for restoring what I destroyed. Thank you for forgiving me and rebuilding a stronger, smarter, more empathetic person from all of this. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”
