If you’re reading this, chances are you already active in the fight against the evil of abortion. They are certainly as many ways to fight as there are people fighting, but there is one way that we can all fight no matter how confrontational we are (or are not), no matter how knowledgeable we are about abortion, no matter where we stand politically on all the other “campaign issues”. We can all pray!
Now before you decide that prayer is not “active” enough, consider a few words from Sacred Scripture:
“The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful.”
-James 5:16 NAB
That truly is the simple answer to the question, “Why choose prayer as the ‘weapon’ of choice against abortion?” We believe that God hears us when we pray fervently and with faith. St. John Chrysostom taught that:
“Nothing is equal to prayer; for what is impossible it makes possible, what is difficult, easy…”
Keeping these things in the forefront of our intentions along with the promise of our Lord in Luke 18:1 that God will hear those who cry out to Him “night and day”, we present to you the opportunity to pray unceasingly with us for an entire year! Join us in wielding this incredibly powerful weapon of prayer!
