PLEASE JOIN IN: 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting - Magdalene - 02-21-2009

This Lent I can think of no better means of entering into the true spirit of this  penitential season than by joining in with all the other souls who are participating in the <B>40 days of prayer and fasting to end abortion</B> and I might add, to seek the conversion of all those who support it, vote for it, promote it, and provide it. The continued scandal of pro-abortion murder politicians who claim to be 'catholic' is just mindboggling!  The Holy Father, the Vicar of Christ, cannot change some of these hardened hearts. Our Lord Himself, who does not trample on our free will, does not force them to turn from their dissent. And there are clergy, far too  many clergy, who also support these politicians and they, too, join in the grave and intrinsic evil.

I am lousy at fasting but I am going to give it my best shot. <B><FONT color=#990000>Are you with me?  Are all you fisheaters with me? Can we be of one heart and mind here and be a true online community to seek conversions of hard hearts, to help save the unborn children, and even to seek even our own sanctification through these mortifications and prayers?</FONT></B>

<P class=body_text>You can also pray for God's guidance for those involved in prayer vigils and pro-life action around the country. And please consider fasting. Some people are unable to fast from food for health reasons; that's understandable. Fasting simply involves renouncing an activity that can put a barrier between you and God. It could be television, the internet, chocolate, coffee, etc. You really can do without it. Take the time you usually spend in those activities and give it back to God.
<P class=body_text>To help guide your prayer, we have a 40-day series of devotionals that accompany the 40 Days for Life campaign. They are all posted for your convenience. You can still pray, even if a formal campaign is not currently being conducted. God will use your 40-day commitment to prayer in some way, in some fashion.
<P class=body_text>Specific prayer requests are also included in the 40 Days for Life e-mail updates. Please use the form on this page to receive these important messages.
