Prayer Countdown: 3 days until 40 Days for Life!

Let us prepare ourselves in prayer for the start of 40 Days for Life (in 3 days!), asking for the Holy Spirit to inspire and strengthen us!

Let us pray,

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.  Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.  And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Heal our wounds — our strength renews; On our dryness pour Thy dew, Wash the stains of guilt away.

Come, O Spirit of Counsel, help and guide me in all my ways, that I may always do Thy holy will.  Incline my heart to that which is good; turn it away from all that is evil, and direct me by the straight path of Thy commandments to that goal of eternal life for which I long.  Amen.

31 open hours this week!

Hello Friend of LIFE!

 
This past week we lost a great prayer warrior for LIFE to cancer. He spent many years on the sidewalks outside of Planned Parenthood witnessing for LIFE – always ready to share the truth about the evils of abortion.   During his battle with cancer, he and his wife would still stop by the sidewalk to witness for LIFE when they were in town for doctors appointments and treatments. Though he will no longer be with us in body, we know that the love he left on the sidewalk will continue on in our hearts and in our witness for LIFE.
 
Gary LaFave (1940-2019) passed away on Monday, September 2, 2019 after his battle with cancer.  Gary was a faithful Catholic and he and his wife, Bernadine, were prayer warriors for the unborn.  Gary & Bernadine had been married for 47 years, had raised 3 children and have 10 grandchildren.  He will be missed.  Please pray for the repose of his soul and for grace & help for his family.
 
Please sign up for an hour this week!

Dear friend of LIFE –

 
Yesterday, we posted a photo of Baby Norman wearing a onesie that said, “I’m Pro-LIFE.

You can share a pro-life message such as this by witnessing for LIFE on the sidewalks outside of Planned Parenthood, 3706 Orin Rd. In Madison.
