Lord God, Author of Life and Source of Eternal Life,

Move the heart of President Trump, to fulfill his responsibilities worthily and well to all those entrusted to his care.

Help him in his special leadership role, to extend the mantle of protection to the most vulnerable, especially the defenseless unborn, whose lives are threatened with extermination by an indifferent society.

Guide all public officials by your wisdom and grace to cease supporting any law that fails to protect the fundamental good that is human life itself, which is a gift from God and parents.

You are the Protector and Defender of the lives of the innocent unborn. Change the hearts of those who compromise the call to protect and defend life. Bring our nation to the values that have made us a great nation, a society that upholds the values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.

Please protect our President and his family and keep them safe as they lead our great nation.
