Prayer is the foundation of all our efforts to fight President Obama’s HHS Mandate, which forces all employer health plans to provide free contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs, without regard to objections of conscience.
Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life has composed a Novena for this intention, which we are inviting all to pray in the days leading up to the big Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom. Here is the Novena for Day 2:
Novena to Reverse HHS Mandate: Day 2
Lord Jesus Christ,
You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
You are the ruler of every nation
and You call all nations to obey Your law,
which is higher than any human law.
Lord Jesus, we lift up to You today
all who serve in public office.
We pray, Lord, for our President
and for the thousands of people who serve in his administration.
We pray that You enlighten and guide them,
and free them from the deception of evil.
Give them a new respect for human life, for freedom of conscience,
and for the rights of Your people.
We pray that Your people may be free from all unjust laws and mandates
and may always raise their voices
on behalf of human rights.
We ask this of You who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
