Fast For Hope

 

 

Update after the election: Although the time for voting for President is past, we can still pray for our country and all its needs. Please focus your attention on “FOCA” elsewhere on this blog. But still refer to “Fast for Hope” for prayer tips that can be applied to the many dangerous moves that Mr. Obama and the new Congress want to make.

ELECTION PRAYER (Please Pray Daily)

“Ever-faithful God, we consecrate the 2008 U.S. presidential election and our entire nation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Loving Mother, Patroness and Protectress of the Americas.

We ask that You take our Nation into Your Loving Care, reach into the hearts of the electorate, and give them the strength and enlightenment to know your Will, and to exercise Your Will in their vote. Abba, Father, Thy Will Be Done!”

November 3rd and 4th –
National Days of Prayer & Fasting

Just as our forefathers did in founding this great nation, we declare that we are one nation under God, and recognize that under God’s care we remain. At this crucial time of transition, please join your fellow Americans in lifting our eyes, our hearts and our prayers to our Heavenly Father, pleading for His mercy.

PRAYER and FASTING INTENTIONS

  • That all U.S. citizens will be graced with the awareness that the greatest right is the right to life, and that each individual will protect this right above all others in faithfulness to their God, their country, and to all of humanity.
  • For the election of a President who will do everything possible to secure the right to life for every human life – from conception to natural death.
  • For the defeat of all candidates who promote, support, or advocate in any way, a culture of death.
  • That all of our elected leaders be inspired by God to work to protect the pre-born, the innocent, helpless and needy above all else, and to serve as responsible stewards of human life, God-given resources, national strength and worldly influence.

“To claim the right to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia, and to recognize that right in law, means to attribute to human freedom a perverse and evil significance: that of an absolute power over others and against others. This is the death of true freedom…”
Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae 20
