Prayer For Forgiveness Of Abortion

Heavenly Father, we lift up all those women and mothers whose hearts are aching because of their decision to have an abortion and who are now riddled with guilt, because of their choices.

We also lift up those whose freely chose to abort their babies, based on their own selfish attitude, thinking that a baby in their life would spoil the prearranged plans they had made or inhibit their desired destiny.

We pray Your mercy and forgiveness over each one and ask that in a very special way You would come alongside each woman who has made a decision to terminate their pregnancy. Meet each one at their very point of need.

Comfort those that are grieving, support those that are weak and convict those that have rejected the sacredness of a human life. Bring each one we pray, to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus, and an assurance of Your gracious forgiveness. This we ask in Jesus' name,


Loving Lord, I come to You and confess my sin of abortion, and ask that Your healing grace would touch my heart today. The remembrance of it is eating me inside and I need Your healing grace and loving forgiveness.

I cast this great burden onto You, knowing that You have promised to heal those that are broken-hearted and to bind up the inner wounds of those that are hurting.

I know that the consequences of our wrong choices can bring much pain, but I also know that You are a God Who has promised to forgive and heal all who come to You with a contrite heart and that You will remember our sins no more.

Forgive me Lord, heal my life. Create in me a clean heart I pray, and renew a right spirit within me. This I ask in Jesus' name,


Lord Jesus, my heart is aching as I had an abortion a long time ago and I still feel guilty for I know now that what I did was wrong. It was a sin against You Lord. But Father, at the time I was frightened. I realise now that my sin was against You in so many ways, and that the responsibility is mine. Oh God, I have wondered if I could ever be forgiven. I have confessed my sin so many times, my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had.

Thank You, Lord, that at last You have brought peace into my heart, for I now realise that You died on the cross to pay the price of all my sin, even those I may yet commit in the future and even the abortion I had. Thank You, that all my sins are forgiven forever, because Jesus took the punishment that I deserved.

Thank You that my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had is already forgiven at the cross and that I am Your child, simply because I trust in Jesus. Thank You Lord, for forgiving all my sin, and thank You that because I trust in Jesus, there is no condemnation on me at all. Thank You for sending this healing balm into my heart and thank You that am forgiven forever.

Lord, I pray that if I hear the voice of accusation in my ears or in my heart, that You would help me to lift up my voice in praise to You, for You have promised that I am forgiven by the blood of Jesus, and I am not under condemnation.

Lord, I want to live a life that is pleasing to You. Heal me fully I pray, and thank You in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, we lift up the many mothers who are today considering an abortion, and pray that in Your grace You would direct them to make a godly and wise decision.

Lord, You know the individual circumstances of each and every woman, and the many arguments they may be using in their decision, of whether of not to abort the babe in their womb.

We pray that You would send godly councillors, wise advisors and caring friends to come alongside them and offer them guidance, hope and comfort, and we ask that in Your grace You would give them reassurance in their hearts, that abortion is not the answer to their problem, and recognise that You are the Author of life and hope.

We pray that You would convict many to discard their thoughts of aborting their baby, and trust You to lead and guide in the future choices they make. This we ask in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, You know all that I have done in my life, and how I have skirted around the issue of my abortion, dismissed the significance of this sin in my life and tried to pretend that it was no big deal.

But Lord, I now confess to You this terrible sin and realise increasingly that it is detestable in Your sight to abort a new little life. I confess my wrongdoing and grieve to think of the unborn baby that I chose to terminate in my womb.

I confess my sin and repent of my casual attitude and ask for Your healing touch on my life. Help me to release this painful memory to You and to accept that Your promise of forgiveness to all who repent of their sins and turn to Christ.

Thank You that You paid the price for all my sins at Calvary and that You have promised to remove them as far as the east is from the west Thank You in Jesus name,


Oh Lord, I had an abortion thinking it was for the best, but the grief and guilt I have felt ever since I took that decision has haunted me, and I feel so ashamed of myself and riddled with guilt, by allowing a little life to be taken in this way.

My heart is so heavy and I find that I am not able to think about anything else and realise more and more that it is against You Lord, that I have sinned and done this great wrong.

Lord, I feel broken inside and pray for Your healing and comfort. You have promised to mend the broken-hearted and to set those that are captive to guilt and shame free, and Lord, You have promised forgiveness and restoration to all who come humbly to Your throne of grace and confess their wrongdoing. My hope is in You, for You alone can restore the joy of my salvation.

Thank You, that You are a forgiving God, Whose mercies are new every morning and that You that You have promised to carry all our guilt and burdens, and so I hand this over to You today, and ask for the healing and restoration that only You can give, and the grace to forget what is past and move on with You as my guide. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, Almighty God.
I humble myself before your Presence.

Father of life,
Father of all spirits.
I have sinned against You,
I have broken your commandment that says "You shall not kill."

I repent of my crime,
I admit my guilt
and I ask you to forgive me.
You have said an eye for an eye,
a tooth for a tooth
and a life for a life [Leviticus 24:17-21];
if You look at my iniquities,
I will be lost forever,
but with You is found mercy and love [Psalm 130:2-3].

Lord have mercy on me, a sinner.

Lord you have appointed repentance for the forgiveness of sins,
You have given power to Your Church to forgive sins.
I promise to confess my sins to a Catholic priest **
and I beg you to heal the wounds of my soul.

Heal me O Lord,
purify me from all my iniquities.
Precious Blood of Jesus cover me,
I have shed human blood,
I have destroyed life
and you are life,
now I beg you Lord by the power of your Precious Blood
that You forgive me
and deliver me from my iniquities.

Blessed Mother Mary,
Virgin mother of all the living,
mother of life,
I am your child,
forgive me my sins
and pray for me,
take me into the refuge of your Immaculate Heart
and help me to live God's commandments.

Mother Mary, you are the mother of that human being that I rejected.
I entrust it to you
and to Your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God,
that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.


Eternal Father,
Source of all mercy and love,
out of love for us you sent your Son,
and willed that blood and water
flow from his side to cleanse us of sin
and restore lost innocence.

Hear the cry of each woman who mourns
the loss of her child to abortion.
Forgive her sin, restore her to your grace,
and still the terror of her heart
with a peace beyond all understanding.
Through the intercession
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of all tenderness and our Mother,
strengthen her faith in you.
Give her the consolation to believe
that her child is now living in the Lord.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
who conquered sin and death,
and who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
