PRAYER TO END ABORTION

240_f_30469296_ju5e8akgmflx5ix0xwwx3jg1vkunwi5g

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all, through Christ our Lord. Amen!

-Fr. Frank Pavone www.priestsforlife.org.

By Servant of God – Fr. John A. Hardon, SJ
 
LORD JESUS CHRIST, you told us to give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God. Enlighten the minds of our people in America. May we choose a President of the United States, and other government officials, according to your Divine will. Give our citizens the courage to choose leaders of our nation who respect the sanctity of unborn human life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of marital relations, the sanctity of family, and the sanctity of aging. Grant us the wisdom to give You, what belongs to You, our God. If we do this, as a nation, we are confident You will give us an abundance of Your blessings through our elected leaders. Amen

Steve Karlen to Speak at 40 Days For Life Ann Arbor Midpoint Rally, Saturday, February 27th at 3:00 pm!

karlen-Steve

 

STEVE KARLEN, Director of North American Outreach, for 40 Days for Life will be flying in from Wisconsin, to speak at our Midpoint Rally, on Saturday, February 27, at 3 pm outside of Planned Parenthood, 3100 Professional Drive in Ann Arbor.

Please join us and hear his inspiring message! Steve has always been pro-life, but, like many people, he never really did anything about it. All of that changed when his wife found out that a friend was pregnant and planning to have an abortion. Steve and his wife rushed to her aid—an experience that moved them so deeply that they got involved in the pro-life movement by volunteering for their local 40 Days for Life effort. Just months later, Steve found himself at the center of a nationwide controversy as he helped lead an effort to prevent the University of Wisconsin from opening a late-term abortion center. Steve responded courageously, working through the media and organizing thousands of volunteers. 

Steve went on to incorporate a local pro-life organization and was then quickly asked to serve as a leader on the state, national, then international level. Steve has shared his message in 35 states, Washington, DC, four Canadian provinces, and Mexico City.   He and his work have been featured on American Family Radio, EWTN, the Christian Broadcasting Network, NBC, CBS and Fox affiliates, as well as numerous newspapers and radio stations.  Steve lives in Madison, Wisconsin with his wife Laura and his children, Peter, John Paul, and Teresa.
