Prayer for Building a Culture of Life in Women's Health Care (published by the Pope Paul VI Institute)
Almighty and eternal Father, source of life, You infuse a spirit, a soul, in every human being at conception.
So it is your will that the protection of every human life and the development of all human life is part of your plan for the human family and for your Church.

Bless all women and married couples who seek healing from the Institute, especially those suffering from infertility, recurrent miscarriages and other reproductive health problems.

And, Almighty Father, we ask you to bless the Pope Paul VI Institute with the resources it needs to fulfill its mission of promoting the sacredness of human life and the dignity of all women and married couples who desire professional and holistic treatment as they seek to fulfill your command to “be fruitful and multiply”
We make this prayer to you, Almighty Father, in the name of your Son Jesus and with the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. One God forever and ever. Amen
