Prayer for not born children




主イエス・キリストのみ名によって。 アーメン

God the Father, source of Life, by your love and affection, remember the children who were not born, lead them to Eternal life as they could not know the warmth of a mother,

I beg you to bring them in your light and filled them with your love.

Our Lady of Perpetual help, make them on joy also the kindness of a mother. And I pray that you intercede for them children who were not born.

By the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen



I hope from the bottom of my heart that human life which is a gift from God will be protected from the beginning to the end without any exception.  And I hope your trial of March for Life Japan will continue for a long time so that Church will get engaged in accordance with your effort.



Isao Kikuchi, Archbishop of Tokyo
