Suggested Scriptural references ...
Behold, children are a heritage from the L-rd, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3
As you do not know the way the Spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of G-d who makes everything. Ecclesiastes 11:5
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. Psalm 139:13-16a
I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the L-rd your G-d, obeying His voice and holding fast to Him, for He is your life Deuteronomy 30:18-20

Thank You for founders who established this country on the fact that You created all of us equal. We plead for You to lead all Americans to respect and protect the sacred right to life at every stage.
We pray that our leaders and our people will learn to respect the sanctity of life for all humans, including the aged, the ill, the disadvantaged and the unborn from the moment of conception until natural death.
We pray that Americans will nurture and protect all human life.
We plead for an end to the plague of abortion in our nation.
We ask You to move in the hearts of judges and legislators to uphold the sanctity and precious gift of every human life.
We ask You, L-rd, to bring deep healing to those who have chosen abortion. We pray that each woman come to know that You have plans for her welfare and not her destruction. We pray for the deep healing of men who have been involved in abortion.
We ask, O G-d, for your mercy on a nation that is condoning the murder of its own children. Forgive us, convict us and transform us, O G-d, we pray.
