Movement for a Better America is encouraging all pro-lifers to join in a prayer campaign for our preborn children. As MBA explains it:
All it takes is a moment to reflect on all the women and babies who are at risk for abortion today—here in America and around the world. And then say your own favorite prayer—the Lord’s Prayer or the Hail Mary or the Rosary—that God’s grace may intervene on their behalf.
If enough people do this—3,000 a day in the United States or 100,000 a day throughout the world—that would be a prayer for everyone in the world at risk for abortion today. Surely, that many babies and mothers are worth that much praying every day.
Churches can join in this prayer campaign by remembering those at risk for abortion in the prayers of the faithful at Mass. Just add “for all the women and babies at risk for abortion throughout the world” to your prayer list.
How important is that?
In the United States, we are fast approaching 60 million abortions since 1967. That’s over 3,100 babies for every Catholic parish in the United States over the last 50 years.
Each year, that amounts to one abortion per week within the boundaries of every parish in the United States. In high abortion states, that can rise to 3 or 4 per week.
Think about it. We pray for almost everyone else—for the poor, the sick, the dying, men and women in service, for vocations, for almost everything else. Surely we can add a short prayer, a gentle reminder to help bring an end to the greatest scourge that has ever hit mankind.
And, if you do join this campaign, by all means let us know. Just drop a note to Movement for a Better America, PO Box 472, Mt. Freedom, NJ 07970-0472.
