God longs for all men who have been involved in an abortion decision to receive his forgiveness, healing, and hope.
If you are in need of such healing, I encourage you to prayerfully read through this booklet—After Abortion: A Prayer Booklet For Men—and to receive all the blessings the Lord has for you.
I originally wrote the booklet After Abortion: God Offers Forgiveness, Healing and Hope for women in prison after I had learned of two women who were suffering the effects of their abortions. The booklet was later adapted to make it appropriate for any woman struggling with the effects of an abortion.
When I recently received a request to adapt the booklet to make it appropriate for men, I immediately said, “Yes.” But After Abortion: A Prayer Booklet for Men would not have been possible without the expert edits of Fonda Luersman, the Project Rachel Coordinator for the Diocese of Venice in Florida. I also received insightful comments and new content from Greg Hasek, a licensed marriage and family therapist. Greg, who has helped numerous men dealing with abortion, shares his thoughts with you on the next page.
And now this prayer booklet is in your hands. In the following pages, you will find seven reflections based on Scripture, together with questions to prompt you in personal heart to heart conversations with God. Begin each reflection by asking God to bless your time alone with him. Don’t rush to finish a reflection in one session. Stay with a Scripture verse or suggested action until you feel you are ready to move on. And revisit a reflection as often as you feel a need. You are a unique person on your own individual journey to a deeper relationship with God and the forgiveness, healing and hope he offers. So let the Holy Spirit lead you.
God loves everyone and offers his gift of forgiveness, healing, and hope to all his beloved children!
