In several days, on August 15th, many people celebrate the Assumption of Mary. This day celebrates the passage of Mary, the mother of Jesus, into Heaven at the end of her earthly life.
At Lake Constance in central Europe, there is a statue of Mother Mary on the lake floor in the middle of the lake where Austria, Switzerland, and Germany meet. Every August 15th for the Assumption of Mary, boats leave from the shores of each country to meet in the middle to pray for Mother Mary. I have asked my friends there to make sure to include our prayers for the fertility of young women. They sent me the picture above as their prayers have begun.
How do we create a great civilization? One healthy mother and one healthy, beautfiul baby at a time.
I pray for the health and well-being of all of our young women, for their fertility, and for the unborn children they carry in their hearts, their minds, and in their womb.
I pray for divine protection for the fertility of women and ask Mother Mary to be with us and guide us at this time.
I pray that those who would contribute in any way—by direct action or support and financing—would be touched by Mary’s love, that their heart would be warmed by a Mother’s love to change their path.
Please join us between now and August 15th as we pray for the mothers who bring our future into this world.
From the Book of Common Prayer Marriage service:
O almighty God, Creator of mankind, who only art the well-spring of life: Bestow upon your servants, if it be thy will, the gift and heritage of children; and grant that they may see their children brought up in thy faith and fear, to the honor and glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O merciful Lord, and heavenly Father, by whose gracious gift mankind is increased: we beseech thee, assist with thy blessing all married persons, that they may both be fruitful in procreating children, and also live together so long in godly love and honesty, that they may see their children christianly and virtuously brought up, to thy praise and honor; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
From Reverend Franklin Sanders, Christ Our Hope Church, Westport, TN, USA
Most gracious Father, who out of your boundless love have created mankind for your own pleasure and glory, put to death in us and in all men and women the murdering and demonic spirit of this age that hates humanity and seeks to disrupt fertility and destroy children. You alone are the author of all life and you alone open and close the womb, so grant us, we beseech you, reverent joy in our fertility, purposeful delight in conception, loving patience in pregnancy, and hearts to cherish all children as the fulfillment of your promise and command in Eden. Fill the whole earth with the fruit of your love. In Jesus’ blessed Name. Amen.
