Prolife Corner November by Karen W
As I write, we are in the midst of the “40 Days For Life” effort (I apologize for not informing people ahead of time. I learned of it late in time myself.) and it will probably be near the November 2nd ending date when you read this. God’s Will be done.
This effort is intended to call people to fasting, prayer, and physical presence and witness at abortion clinics throughout the nation for 40 days, to help bring to an end the holocaust of abortion. Hopefully these actions will have an effect on the upcoming election. The ProLife vs. pro-abortion lines are clearly drawn between the two candidates. I’m sure that homeschoolers already understand the gravity of having a ProLife president – but do your friends, relatives, and neighbors know? Is there anything you could be doing to help bring about a victory for the unborn with this election?
Please, whatever opportunities you have to help others see how serious this issue is, please take advantage of them! And it is never too late to join in with fasting and prayer, if you haven’t already been doing so. http://www.40daysforlife.com/getinvolved.cfm?selected=devotionals
The USCCB have asked that we pray a novena prior to the election if possible.
The Novena for Faithful Citizenship runs for nine days and can be used consecutively, one day each week, for nine days prior to the election, or “in any way that works best for a community or individual,” said Rosenhauer. http://www.faithfulcitizenship.org/

ELECTION PRAYER (Please Pray Daily)“Ever-faithful God, we consecrate the 2008 U.S. presidential election and our entire nation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Loving Mother, Patroness and Protectress of the Americas.
We ask that You take our Nation into Your Loving Care, reach into the hearts of the electorate, and give them the strength and enlightenment to know your Will, and to exercise Your Will in their vote. Abba, Father, Thy Will Be Done!”
Every little whispered prayer will help. And, lastly, take advantage of the very weapons that God has laid in our hands to wage war with—have your children pray too!
”Truly sons are a gift from the Lord,
A blessing, the fruit of the womb. filled his quiver with these arrows!
Indeed, the sons of youth are like
arrows in the hands of a warrior
