In the name of the One God, ever living and life giving, faithful and true, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
I accept God's gift of life to me in the circumstances
of my conception and birth, of my parents, of my family,
of all whosoever care for me or did me
harm in all the years that began the journey of my life.
God who calls by name works all together for my good. I choose life.
I accept God's gift of life around me, the sacred treasure of each human life whether sister, brother, friend or stranger; however whole or broken, small or great, saint or sinner,
rich or poor, ill or well, ally or enemy, or indifferent.
Each is crafted in God's image, to each is offered Christ's redemption, in each moves the spirits blessing. I choose life.
