Prayer Countdown: 4 days until 40 Days for Life!

Let us prepare ourselves in prayer for the start of 40 Days for Life (in 4 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.

If Thou take Thy grace away, nothing pure in man will stay, All his good is turn’d to ill.

Come, O Spirit of Understanding, and enlighten our minds, that we may know and believe all the mysteries of salvation; and may merit at last to see the eternal light in Thy Light; and in the light of glory to have a clear vision of Thee and the Father and the Son.  Amen.

To be a part of this life-saving campaign, go to: vigilforlife.org/calendar/monthview or e-mailinfo@vigilforlife.org or call Gwen at (608)393-8545.

Mission Prayer 
 
Lord, we come before you this day and ask that your will be done with this mission.  Lord, it is not our mission, it is your mission and all that we ask is that you do with us what you will.  Give us the love and humility to simply open ourselves up so that your spirit, light, and love can flow through us freely. We are your hands and feet here on earth.  We are the only image of you that some people may ever see.  Let us shine forth that image perfectly so that people may see the good we do and give glory to God.  We ask this is Jesus’ holy name. Amen.

“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.” – Thomas Jefferson

 
Thinking about the above quote from Thomas Jefferson (one of our nation’s founding fathers), it would seem that our government went way off track in 1973 when it put forth the tragic decision of Roe v. Wade that does not care for human life but only promotes its destruction. 
 
Show your care for human life this week!  Sign up for an hour or more to witness forLIFE on the sidewalk outside of Planned Parenthood where the care of human life is at all time low.
 
Also, please keep the Supreme Court Justice hearings in your prayers!
 

OPEN HOURS

 
Wednesday, 9/5 – 1 needed at 12p; 1 needed at 1p and 1 needed at 2p.

God our Father,
Giver of life,
we entrust the United States of America to Your loving
care.

You are the rock on which this nation was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your
people.

Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation´s
leaders.
Open their minds to the great worth of human life
and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in
seeking and doing Your will.

Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate,
Patroness of our land,
grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death.”
Lead us into a new millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
