WASHINGTON, June 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- Priests for Life, recently recognized as one of the top 20 Christian political organizations, announced today that it is leading an 18-week prayer campaign to prepare the nation for the 2006 elections.
“This is a double-novena, a pair of nine-week periods of prayer, starting on Tuesday the Fourth of July, and concluding on Tuesday, November 7, which is Election Day,” explained Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.
“The intentions of the campaign are that citizens take an active role in the elections and understand that the most important issue is abortion,” Fr. Pavone said.
A special website, www.PrayerCampaign.org, has been set up for the prayer campaign. People are invited to say each day a prayer specially composed for the campaign. The prayer can be found on the website, and visitors can indicate online their intention to participate.
To accompany the campaign, Priests for Life is also publishing a booklet called “Ten Easy Steps to Voting with a Clear Conscience.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
