Prayer for our Nation’s Health Care Reform
(save this page to use in your daily prayer time)

Lord Jesus, You are the Divine Physician, and the source of all life and health.  Guide our nation at this critical moment, as our government seeks health care reforms.  Give our elected officials the humility to know that they are servants, not masters.  Give them the wisdom to realize that every life has equal value.   Give them the strength to resist the idea that some lives can be sacrificed to save others or that killing the unborn is a part of health care.  Give your people the courage to speak up and to hold public officials accountable for their actions.  Save us, Lord Jesus, from a culture of death, and let every reform in our public policy be based on the reform of our hearts and minds, in the light of your Gospel, for You are Lord forever and ever. Amen.
