God, our Creator, we give thanks to You, who alone have the power to impart the breath of life as you form each of us in our mother’s womb. Grant, we pray, that we, whom you have made stewards of creation, may remain faithful to the sacred trust and constant in safeguarding the dignity of every human life. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, on God forever and ever. Amen.
