Heavenly Father, Almighty God.
I humble myself before your Presence.
Father of life,
Father of all spirits.
I have sinned against You,
I have broken your commandment that says “You shall not kill.”
I repent of my crime,
I admit my guilt
and I ask you to forgive me.
You have said an eye for an eye,
a tooth for a tooth
and a life for a life ;
if You look at my iniquities,
I will be lost forever,
but with You is found mercy and love .
Lord have mercy on me, a sinner.
Lord you have appointed repentance for the forgiveness of sins,
You have given power to Your Church to forgive sins.
I promise to confess my sins to a Catholic priest **
and I beg you to heal the wounds of my soul.
Heal me O Lord,
purify me from all my iniquities.
Precious Blood of Jesus cover me,
I have shed human blood,
I have destroyed life
and you are life,
now I beg you Lord by the power of your Precious Blood
that You forgive me
and deliver me from my iniquities.
Blessed Mother Mary,
Virgin mother of all the living,
mother of life,
I am your child,
forgive me my sins
and pray for me,
take me into the refuge of your Immaculate Heart
and help me to live God’s commandments.
Mother Mary, you are the mother of that human being that I rejected.
I entrust it to you
and to Your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God,
that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
** Note: According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, those involved
in abortion are automatically excommunicated. As such, they cannot confess
their sins until such time as their excommunication has been lifted. They
cannot confess to a priest unless the Bishop gave him the faculty to lift an
excommunication that is reserved to a Bishop.

For those in El Paso, here’s an event to prayerfully consider (for prayer warriors beyond, something to add to your battle list). Bound4Life is holding a silent siege this Saturday. For those unfamiliar, this is not a protest, per se, but a time of prayer and intercession for the unborn.
During these events, participants stand silently, with tape on their mouths, near an abortion clinic. Participants “build up a wall and stand in the gap on behalf of our nation (Ezekiel 22:30). … When LIFE is written on a piece of red tape and placed on our mouths, we are identifying with the silent cries of the unborn and of those who have no voice. Our stand is not a protest, but a silent prayer meeting. We make our appeal to the Judge of the earth and ask Him for speedy justice to be released. ” (Bound4Life.com)
Here are the details for this month’s siege.
- WHEN: Saturday, January 29, 2011
- TIME: 8:45 a.m. in St. Clement’s Youth Activity Center located at Ochoa and Yandell (for general instructions and praying together)
- ACTUAL PRAYING TIME: From 9:00-11:00 a.m.
- WHERE: Reproductive Services at 730 E. Yandell, El Paso TX
- WHAT BRING: Bible, water, music player with worship music ONLY, and your Red Bound4Life T-Shirt (If you don’t have one yet, you can buy on site for $10. It is important to identify the cause)
Rescue the Pre-born
SundayO God of Beginnings, You are the Creator of all life. As we begin this week, be near us as we unite with our Pre-born brothers and sisters who are scheduled for death. May you by your Holy Spirit and by the voice of your church lead your people to rescue from death the innocent children and bring those who participate in their death to true repentance that they may taste of your goodness and mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Spiritual WarfareMondayAlmighty and Powerful God, drive all evil spirits away from the innocent Pre-born children and from the killing centers where their destruction is planned. Overcome evil with good in the hearts of those who reject your truth and who have believed the lies of the evil one who would say that good is evil and evil is good. Rebuke the enemy for the sake of innocent children and for your sake, Oh Lord; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Kingdom PrayerTuesdayOh Great King of Kings, let your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven for the sanctity of all human life. You have said that your Kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Where there is unrighteousness let righteousness come to bear, where there is hostility, cause your peace to reign supreme, where there is sorrow, bring joy in the hearts of people. Lead us into your unshakable and everlasting kingdom in which you reign forever and ever that truly the kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdoms of our God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
For ForgivenessWednesdayOh God of mercy and grace, as you hung on the hard wooden cross, you asked that those who were putting you to death might be forgiven. Please, Oh Lord, help us to offer that same forgiveness to those who participate in abortion, euthanasia, the destruction of embryonic life and who by other means violate the sanctity of human life, that in all things the world would know the height, the depth, the breadth, and width of your love, your mercy and your grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Restoration of the Holiness and Protection of the WombThursdayOh Holy God, our Rock and our Fortress, you used the womb of Mary to be a tabernacle for the dwelling of the Incarnation, where the Holy Son of God was to be nurtured and protected. You created the womb of woman that the miracle of human life might be nurtured and protected. Many women have been deceived to believe that their womb is not a place of holy protection for a human life, but that it is simply another appendage of their body. Renew and restore your purpose and will concerning the womb of all women throughout the earth, that you may be glorified; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
For GovernmentsFridayOh Ruler of the nations, many of the kings of the earth have set themselves against you; they rebel against your rule. Yet you have set your King on your holy hill of Zion so that in every local, state, provincial and national government you would rule in the midst of your enemies. We pray that you would strengthen and uphold those rulers that, by your grace, are following your ways and purpose. Make your enemies a footstool for your feet, that all people in all nations would kiss the Son, so they may know that happy are those who take refuge in you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, forever and ever. Amen
For an End to AbortionSaturdayOh God, who is the Beginning and the End, hear our prayers as we cry out to you to end the merciless shedding of innocent blood in our nation and throughout the world. Through death you have conquered death and through your life we experience eternal and everlasting life. Cause life to spring forth in the hearts of all people and bring forth a love and respect for life that will dominate our culture. May your kingdom and church apprehend and overtake the culture of death that has prevailed through deceit and selfishness; may the Seed of the woman crush the head of the serpent through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
