You knitted me together in my mother's womb...

Father, we live in a culture deceived by the cunning falsehoods of the devil, obsessed with death, and determined to pursue its pleasures no matter what the cost may be. Enable us, we pray, to discern the truth revealed in Your Word amid the Liar’s deceit. Enable us to stand steadfast as faithful witnesses to the Gospel of Life that our good confession in word and deed may validate the Gospel which we profess and reveal Jesus as Savior and Lord. Enable us to provide care and support to mothers who feel trapped in a crisis pregnancy, that their hope may be restored and they may be given the courage to choose life.

Father, give comfort and courage to mothers who have experienced a miscarriage, that they may trust in Your promise that all things will work together for good to them that love God. Your love is stronger than death. Your purpose will overcome even the darkest depths of despair. Wipe away the tears from their eyes and replace their sadness with rejoicing.

Father, restore our troubled families. Renew marriage as the lifelong commitment of a man and a woman to one another in Christ-like self-sacrificing love. Refresh our appreciation for the gift of procreation as the most wondrous expression of love that is blessed to participate in Your gift of life.
Father, the battle rages on. The strife is fierce and the warfare long. The countless hosts of evil seem invincible on every side. Give us the courage to stand fast and firm. Give us the endurance not to grow weary in this warfare. Lift our gaze beyond the field of battle to the victory celebration which has already begun in the halls of heaven. Our Christ is not dead! He is alive! May we be His champions for life here and now.
We pray in the most holy name of Jesus. Amen.
The Life Team at Our Savior Lutheran exists to equip our church to be Gospel-motivated voices for life.

Other Life Speeches from Pastor White:

Pregnancy Center

Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, church and community groups have reached out to mothers in crisis pregnancy situations with hearts, hands and resources. Our Savior Lutheran Church supports the BLUE BLOSSOM Pregnancy Centers with The Houston Coalition For Life. This maternal assistance office offers the Curriculum of Life Program to new mothers, expectant mothers and young women who need help. They offer Life Classes, Pregnancy Tests, Ultrasounds, Confidential Counseling, and Referrals, ALL for FREE.

Blue Bus

OSL supports the Blue Buses operated by The Houston Coalition For Life. The Blue Bus parks at Planned Parenthood six days a week, and offers free ultrasounds to abortion-minded mothers.  They have about a 92% success rate for helping the mother choose life for her baby! Our support comes in a variety of ways. Volunteers may stand and pray on the sidewalk next to a Planned Parenthood. We pray for the women in the crisis situation that brought them to this place, the babies dying here, and the workers who chose this vocation of death. We also support the buses financially during their Walk for Life campaigns and benefits. 

Blanket Ministry

Many Lutheran ladies work diligently to provide baby blankets to the mothers choosing life for their babies after getting a free ultrasound at one of the Blue Buses. In 2023, these ladies finished 1,639 blankets, which were then given to the four Blue Buses and the HCFL office as a gift of love to the mothers. Since February 2011, our Baby Blanket Ministry has contributed over 13,000 blankets to HCFL!

Houston Lutherans For Life

Our Savior Lutheran is the home church for Houston Lutherans For Life being a visible presence giving a voice to the voiceless, by taking part in the Texas Rally For Life, where we march to the Capitol in Austin.

Prayer Vigil to End Roe

Roe v. Wade Overturned!

Cradle of Life Garden

We provide a resting place for preborn children who now live with Jesus.
Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, 
and before you were born I consecrated you..."
Jeremiah 1:4-5
Precious children, God’s creation, formed in His love,
Resting now in heaven’s cradle, safe home above.
Angel guardians watch are keeping
O’er His babies, softly sleeping
No more dying, no more weeping;
Cradle of Life.
Wondrous life though small and fragile, treasure most rare.
When your tiny form was fashioned, Jesus was there.
His the voice that named and knew you;
His the love that claimed and cleansed you;
His the plan, a place prepared you,
Cradle of Life.
Peaceful waters gently flowing, down on their way,
Sparkling ever in the sunlight, bright’ning the day;
Resting in the cross’s shadow,
Promise of a grand tomorrow,
Heaven’s glory soon will follow;
Cradle of Life.
Little ones serenely slumber, Jesus is here.
Angel hosts in countless number always are near;
Wings outstretched in kindness gentle
Lullabies to soothe and settle,
While you rock within your cradle;
Cradle of Life.

For those who had an abortion...

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
