I was thinking about what I can do to support the pro-life gospel in the political sphere of society, especially in America. I want to ask you all to ask for God’s help in strengthening me to pray constantly for the pro-life cause. Also, I would like to gain the courage, confidence, and knowledge, and communication ability to be able to organize and educate those in office and those running for office, and those who are involved in the political process in any way.
These are some things I want to focus on praying for:
- An end to abortion by President’s Day 2013. I pick a time goal just to denote how urgent this murder industry needs to be ended. This is an emergency that just gets worse with every child murdered in his or her mother’s womb.
- A pro-life Presidency, Congress, and Supreme Court.
- An electorate that understands the real principles involved in the Gospel of Life message and votes and conducts political dialogue accordingly.
- A vibrant economy. I think that economic stability is a necessary thing for the culture of life to advance. The culture of death thrives on the illusion that larger populations cannot be sustained, because there are limited resources, work opportunities, etc. Everyone needs to have access to meaningful, remunerative, productive work that contributes to the betterment of themselves and others, and I want to ask God to reveal to us all what sort of ideas and attitudes and virtues and principles we must act on in order to create this kind of situation in society. I don’t know the answers to the economic problems, but I know God does, and He can help us all in knowing what we as individuals and as neighbors need to be in order to be servants and workers in God’s grand creation.
I am personally going to focus on the Rosary when praying for these things. I ask anyone here to suggest other pro-life goals to pray for and to pray for my courage in speaking to those who can influence the political process to orient our nation towards pro-life gospel values. If you want to talk to me about this, and we can pray together and share ideas, you can send me a message or post a reply here.
God bless you all,
