Prayer for healthcare with respect for life

2 Chronicles 7:14 “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

t Please join in a novena (9 days of prayer) from August 31-Sep 8. Catholics are encouraged to fast and pray the rosary, attend mass, or some other prayer or penitential act for the intention of stopping this legislation,(HR 3200) or having it amended to include the four amendments which have been voted down:

  1. Prevent federal funding of abortion
  2. Prevent mandating the inclusion of abortion in coverage
  3. Protect the rights of healthcare workers who object to performing abortions
  4. Prevent the healthcare bill from pre-empting State laws on abortion.

Non-Catholics are encouraged to join in prayer that they feel is most suitable. If you can’t be with us in prayer for all 9 days that’s ok, join in as much as possible.

Pass this on to as many people as you can. If you receive this after Aug 31 or even Sep 8 remember that it is never too late to pray! With God all things are possible.

Heavenly Father, as with Your grace, the stone thrown by a youth destroyed the might of the Philistines, Let our prayers revail against the might of powerful lobby and self interested humanistic powers. Protect the lives of Your children from conception to old age and infirmity, within the people of the nations and enshrined in national law.
We ask this in the name of Your beloved divine Son who shares our humanity and lived and died and rose for each person throughout time.

Lord allow the hardened hearts of those who choose the right to abort your most precious gift, be brought to reason, and understanding, that you are the giver of life,and it is only your right to take life away.Psalm 58*
The Dethrowning of Unjust Rulers

  1. For the leader, do not destroy
    a miktam of David
    I.
  2. Do you indeed pronounce justice,O gods,
    do you judge mortals fairly?
  3. No, you freely engage in crime;
    your hands dispense violence to the earth.
    !!
  4. The wicked have been corrupt since birth;
    liars from the womb, they have gone
    astray,
  5. Their poison is like the poison of a snake,
    like that of a serpant, stopping its ears,
  6. So as to hear the voice of the charmer
    who casts such cunning spells.
    III.
    O God, smash the teeth in their mouths;
    break the jaw teeth of these lions, O Lord !
  7. Make them vanish like water flowing away,
    trodden down, let them wither like grass.
  8. Let them dissolve like a snail that oozes away,
    like an untimely birth that never sees the sun.
  9. Suddenly, like brambles on thistles,
    have the whirlwind snatch them away.
  10. Then the just shall rejoice to see their vengance,
    and bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked.
    12, Then it will be said," Truly there is a
    reward for the just;
    there is a God who is judge on earth !"

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death. Amen.
