Make a Prayer Pledge for America
Now that the most divisive election in American history is over and Donald Trump has been elected president, we know we have avoided a Hillary Clinton presidency, which would have been the most pro-abortion presidency ever. President-elect Trump will now nominate at least one, and perhaps more, Supreme Court justices, and as we know those justices are vital to ending legalized abortion and the scourge of doctor-prescribed suicide. He will appoint numerous federal officials and work with a House and Senate of his own party. He has espoused a number of pro-life policy positions as well. We must now pray that he and the Congress hold to those promises.
In Massachusetts, we saw a number of pro-life candidates win or hold seats on Beacon Hill, and we need them to stand strong for legislation that protects women and babies and against legislation that puts the elderly, sick, and disabled at risk.
Meanwhile, as we continue the work we’re all doing locally to fight for the lives of the unborn, for the elderly and terminally ill, and all those cast aside by the culture of death, Massachusetts Citizens for Life asks you to join us in a Prayer Pledge for America.
Please join us in praying for the future of our great country in whatever spiritual tradition speaks to you. We need all Americans to join us in prayer that, as the song “America the Beautiful” says, God will bless America to mend her every flaw, confirm her soul in self-control, and her liberty in law.
As inspiration we share here with you, George Washington’s prayer for America in a letter he addressed to the governors of all the states on the disbanding of the Army following the War for Independence:
“I now make it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection; that he would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow-citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for brethren who have served in the field; and finally that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.”
