Make a Prayer Pledge for America
As we approach Election Day in November, we see signs that we may have another four (or eight) years of a very pro-abortion president, who will likely nominate several Supreme Court justices, as well as numerous other judges and other federal officials who have the capacity to undermine all the ground we’ve worked so hard to gain in the cause for life. In addition to the work we’re all doing on the ground to support candidates who 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.”
