In the prayer Jesus gave us as a model, the focus is not on getting God to do what we want, but on trying to be open to what God wants: ‘Your kingdom come’. That openness implies a trust that what God wants for us is our good.

One of the points in the parable of the friend knocking at the door is that in the case of true friendship it will not be necessary to browbeat the friend into giving what you seek.

In the culture of the Middle East hospitality is a priority. It would be unimaginable not to help a friend. Just so, it is unimaginable that God will ignore our prayer.

Lord Jesus, you are the source and lover of life.

Reawaken in us respect for every human life.

Help us to see in each child the marvellous

work of our Creator.

Open our hearts to welcome every child as a

unique and wonderful gift. Guide the work of doctors, nurses and midwives.

May the life of a mother and her baby in the

womb be equally cherished and respected.

Help those who make our laws to uphold the

uniqueness and sacredness of every human life,

from the first moment of conception to natural

death. Give us wisdom and generosity to build a

society that cares for all. Together with Mary, your Mother, in whose womb you took on our human nature, help us to choose life in every decision we take. We ask this in the joyful hope of eternal life with you, and in the communion of the

Blessed Trinity. Amen.

Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.

All the Saints of Ireland, pray for us
