We are alive, we are pure.<br />O God of Beginnings, help us to be thankful for the life that we have. Help us to protect and<br /> nurture ourselves by respecting the life You have given us.<br />Teach us to be appreciative children of God, to see how fortunate we are to be able to make<br /> our own decisions and to have the freedom to live.<br />You created the womb in women so that human life would be possible. Some women<br /> disregard the miracle inside of them. They do not grasp the responsibility or importance they <br />have within them. Please, Lord, guide these women to make the right choices and to respect<br />all life, for all life, even when inside the womb, is a heartbeat that is being silenced. <br />We love you, Lord, and we thank you for giving us life. We will not take advantage of it.<br />Amen.<br />

Scriptural Passage...<br />Psalm 139:13-16 <br />A reading from the book of Psalm..<br />For you created my inmost being; <br /> you knit me together in my <br /> mother’s womb. <br /> I praise you because I am fearfully<br /> and wonderfully made;<br />your works are wonderful,<br /> I know that full well. <br />My frame was not hidden from you <br />when I was made in the secret place, <br />when I was woven together in the <br />depths of the earth. <br />Your eyes saw my unformed body; <br /> all the days ordained for me were written in your book <br />before one of them came to be. <br />The World of the Lord...<br />Thanks be to God<br />

  27. 27. “I was 16 and pregnant. At first I was in denial about it. There was no way I could be pregnant. I am a good kid, get A’s in all my classes, getting married in June. But then when I came to the realization it woke me up. I had a choice to make…everyone hate me or everyone never finding out. So I decided abortion was the only way out. I discussed it with my boyfriend, and we decided together that it was the best decision. I made an appointment.<br />As I was waiting for my name to be called I was having second thoughts, but I thought nothing more of it. I went in and saw the baby on the monitor and watched as I killed my own baby. I know it is a harsh word, but that is what I did and didn’t even care. Now it is a year later and I still have flashbacks of what happened and also severe depression. I think if I had not killed my own flesh and blood I would have a one-year-old running around. I think of what I did that terrible day, and I wish that I had kept my little girl.<br /> Don’t kill your child and think it is the easy way out. Trust me, it is not. Every day I still wish my little girl was here.”<br />--Carla<br />Her Story...<br />
  28. 28. Closing Prayer<br />Dear Lord,<br />Thank you for bringing us all together here today to discuss the importance <br />of all lives.<br /> Every human life has an impact on the world. We pray that everyone will get the <br />opportunity to do so.<br /> Often times people will feel like no one needs them in this world, like if they just<br /> disappeared, no one would even notice. If you think this way, don't, because <br />whether you know it or not, someone loves you. Your life is invaluable, <br />precious and pure.<br /> We hope and pray to make choices that protect all human life. We are all special. We all have the right to live.<br /> Please, Lord, give us the courage to be respectful beings and to have the strength to make the right decisions, even when it is hard.<br />Amen. <br />
  29. 29. We end with a sign of our faith...<br />In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit<br />Amen. <br />
