August To-Do List

Hard to believe that it is August, and we’re more than half way through the summer.

The 8th month of the year can serve as a time to get in much needed family vacation before school is back in session. Sadly, the pandemic has put everyone’s plans on hold. Some are still unsure due to the unprecedented times.

The good news is Voices for Life has a to-do list throughout the month that can help you channel your Covid-19 frustrations in helping to advance the pro-life message. This list is applicable for your daily pro-life conviction.

  1. See Trump Card

It should come as no surprise that Dinesh D’Sousa, an immigrant of India, is not done defending the core principles of America. For the last eight years, he has been on the New York Times bestseller’s list, been falsely convicted for fraud, and has produced documentaries that have been game changers. His latest project, “Trump Card” is slated to be released on Friday, August 7th. Due to the temporary closing of movie theaters, you can view the documentary on-demand.

He played a pivotal role in exposing Hillary Clinton’s past which helped Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States with “Hillary’s America”.

In addition, his most recent book United States of Socialism, is out now. To make your purchase, visit here.

2. Holy Hour/Mass for Life

Many states have masses back in session (with restrictions). Some of the faithful should be encouraged to host a Holy Hour for an end to abortion. St. Teresa of Calcutta once believed that if every Catholic made a weekly Holy Hour, we would see an end to abortion. So what are you waiting for? Even if you can’t bring one to you church, make one on your accordance.

3. Take part in vigils in your community

Connect with your local pro-life coalition and find out about vigil locations and times. Pray with your family, college, or even church group. Create a sign that advertises free help with contact information.

4. Host a pro-life committee meeting in your church

Gather people in your parish or church and discuss ways you can help get the pro-life message to your community all around with another pivotal election approaching.

5. Donate to pro-life charity

Give anything you have to advance many pro-life groups making a difference. Some groups include: Generation Life, The Culture Project, St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation, Guiding Star, and Susan B Anthony List to name a few.

6. Work for Susan B Anthony List

The Susan B Anthony List is gearing up to help reach out to voters as the 2020 elections are coming very soon. They are hiring in many battleground states. To learn more, visit here.

7. Purchase Stork: Sowing Season

An indie author recently came out with an amazing book that promotes a pro-life message. To order your copy, visit here. It will make an excellent read in your backyard with a cold drink or while you’re catching rays at the beach.

8. Sign up for 40 Days for Life

The 40 Days for Life campaign begins on Wednesday, September 23rd and ends the weekend before the General Election. The spring campaign was interrupted with the pandemic. Now, with many states putting this phenomenon behind, it is time to go all in to save lives, pray for the workers, help moms choose life, and make a difference in your community.

9. Sidewalk Servants

Even though we’re a long way from the next 40 Days for Life campaign, there are babies being murdered every day. Your presence for at least an hour two during the week will make an impact on the abortion industry. Learn more about sidewalk servants here. Consider starting one in your community.

Pick YOUR Day to Pray for the Success of ‘Face the Truth Tour’ on July 10-18

The following is from Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of the Pro-Life Action League, asking for each of us to pick a day to commit to praying for the success of the ‘Face the Truth Tour.  Tour starts tomorrow, July 10th  and ends next Saturday, July 18th.  Prayer is the most powerful weapon on earth, and sometimes we all need to be reminded of that. Will you commit to pray for this intention? 

Prayer

I don’t have to tell you that last week was brutal for the pro-life movement.

First, the Supreme Court struck down Louisiana’s law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Then they refused to hear the appeal in our case against Chicago’s restrictive “bubble zone” ordinance.

At moments like this, it can feel like we’re losing. Like we’re not getting anywhere.

But that’s nonsense!

For every defeat, the pro-life movement racks up countless victories:

  • Every time we change a heart.
  • Every time we get someone to stop and reconsider abortion.
  • Every time we save a baby, just by being there when it mattered.

Those are the kind of victories I’m going to be looking for during the Pro-Life Action League’s Face the Truth Tour, which starts in less than 48 hours.

But to get there, I need your help.

Today I’m asking you to pledge to pray for one specific day of the 2020 Face the Truth Tour, July 10-18.

Your special prayer pledge will include praying beforeduring, and after your chosen day. That’s why I’m asking you to pick just one day, and focus on it.

To get all the details on exactly what to pray for and submit YOUR prayer pledge, click here.

I can’t tell you how much it will mean to all of us out there on the streets July 10-18 to know we’ve got your prayers behind us!

Thanks in advance for joining the 2020 Face the Truth Prayer Team!

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign Week 5 – PA State Rep Brian Sims

simsWe are in our 5th week of our 6-week prayer campaign for elected officials who support ending newly created life through abortion on demand.  Please join us as we pray for our candidate this week Democratic Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims.  Though he is not a marquee national name, in a way he represents all small town, city and state government representatives who have an opportunity to keep progressing through the political ranks – and at each step gathering more power.  If we could change their disdain for our pre-born children early on, we might not have to fight the pro-life battle at every political front later on.

Brian Sims became newsworthy in the Philadelphia area for videotaping himself while he verbally chastised a peaceful witness outside a Planned Parenthood in downtown Philadelphia.  In another incident he continued this irrational and aggressive behavior while a woman with three girls were praying outside the same abortion center, offering a bounty to anyone who could identify them.

He states he will continue to protect women’s rights and is committed to being a better advocate and ally for women’s rights.

Sims needs our prayers not only for his lack of recognition for our preborn children but also for the rage that he is unable to control.  We ask the Lord to bring a sense of peace to this man so that he can hear His message, and so that he can engage in valuable dialogue with those who hold a different point of view from his – that children have a right to live their lives.

Give up your anger, abandon your wrath;

Do not be provoked; it brings only harm.

Those who do evil will be cut off,

But those who wait for the Lord will possess the land.

(Psalm 37, 8-9)

Prayer Campaign for Politicians Week Three: Nancy Pelosi #onesoulatatime

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority…” — 1 Timothy 2:1-2a

Nancy Pelosi photo

Political leaders, like all people, need the forgiveness of sins and the new life that comes through putting one’s faith in Jesus Christ. “God our Savior . . . . wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1Timothy 2:3b-4). Praying for the salvation of political leaders should be a top priority in a Christian’s life (Acts 4:10-12; Romans 10:9).  God’s Prayer for Political Leaders  

Praying for salvation is the most important prayer we will ever pray. Being persistent in prayer for a lost soul has turned many from darkness to the Light of Christ. That is especially true of  politicians.  We will never have godly government without godly leaders who bow the knee to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  No one is beyond the reach of His Hand when we pray for conversion. As we intercede on behalf of our politicians, be mindful that we are all sinners saved by His grace.  

Nancy Pelosi is the focus of our prayer campaign for week three. She has led a privileged life and is the richest woman in the House of Representatives. She wields a lot of power as speaker of the house. As a professed Catholic, her support for Planned Parenthood and position on abortion is against Catholic doctrine and the Word of God.

Holy Spirit, please set Nancy Pelosi free from the delusions of riches, political power and the lies of Satan, especially the issue of abortion. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

Lord Jesus, we pray Nancy Pelosi repents of her sins, surrenders her life to you and walks in your will and your ways. “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” Luke 5:32

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Cor 5:17

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Jesus doorknocking
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”  Revelations 3:20

Dear Jesus, thank you for knocking at the door of our heart. Please help Nancy Pelosi answer your knock on the door of her heart. We ask this in Your Holy Name, Amen.

VOICES FOR LIFE PRAYER CAMPAIGN 2 – SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN

warrenWe are in our 2nd week of our 6-week prayer campaign for elected officials who support ending newly created life through abortion on demand. Please join us as we pray for our candidate this week, Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Elizabeth Warren is a Democratic senator from the state of Massachusetts, re-elected to her second term in November 2018. She is married with two children and three grandchildren. Senator Warren’s pro-abortion stance is very clear in a statement she made during one of the Democratic debates in November 2019, prior to her dropping out of the Democratic primary race in March 2020:

“”Look, I believe that abortion rights are human rights. I believe that they are also economic rights. And protecting the right of a woman to be able to make decisions about her own body is fundamentally what we do and what we stand for as a Democratic Party.”

Let us pray that this woman has a change of heart from her fierce determination to sacrifice children’s lives under her misconception that abortion is healthcare. Let us pray that her talents as a leader can be put to a higher calling. And let us pray that she, at some point in her life, will ask forgiveness for her advocacy of the termination of our most vulnerable children through abortion.

“Seek the Lord while he may be found, call him while he is near.

Let the scoundrel forsake his way, and the wicked man his thoughts;

Let him turn to the Lord for mercy; to our God, who is generous in forgiving.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.

As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are my ways above your ways

And my thoughts above your thoughts.” (Isaiah, 55, 6-9)

 

 

 

 

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign Week 1 – Governor Andrew Cuomo #onesoulatatime

‘Winning the war against unborn babies and their mothers one soul at a time’

Andrew Cuomo

Today begin’s our 6-week Prayer Campaign for some of our elected officials.  We are asking everyone to join us in praying for the particular politician we post for the whole week.

I’ve chosen Governor Andrew Cuomo this week as to me he is someone who is in desperate need of our prayers. Governor Cuomo is on record as stating he believes in abortion up to and including the moment of birth of a baby, and during the present pandemic, he has ordered nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients.  He doesn’t seem to value life at either end of the spectrum.

Let us pray for the governor’s conversion :

  • That God sends many Christians across his path to share the Gospel
  • That the light of Christ sets him free from the deceit and darkness of satan
  • That he falls to his knees and surrenders his life to Jesus Christ, his only hope for salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit shows him overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
  • That he becomes a advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.

Please join me this week in remembering Governor Cuomo in your daily prayers.

“This is what we are all about…conversion. We will continue to reach out to these men and women in love. Hate doesn’t work. Condemnation doesn’t work. Judgment doesn’t work. The mercy of Christ is what WORKS. Please pray with us….You are making a difference.” Abby Johnson, former PP clinic director and founder of ‘And Then There Was None’

Prayer Campaign for our Elected Officials – #onesoulatatime

‘Winning the war against unborn babies and their mothers #onesoulatatime’

 

Prayer

Last Sunday as I was praying and meditating on my rosary for the intention of an end to surgical and non-surgical abortions, I was moved to pray for some of our elected officials who have little or no regard for the sanctity of life.

A few years ago we promoted a prayer campaign for abortionists, and politicians who strongly support and/or promote abortion.  This campaign ran throughout the Lenten Season and was very successful.   We would like to begin a similar campaign this month to pray for some of our elected officials who are so vehemently anti-life.

Prayer is the most powerful weapon we have in fighting this battle against the anti-life forces in our society.  And as we are instructed by God,  to ‘love our enemies’, what better way to show that love than to pray for their conversion?

Our campaign begins this coming Monday, May 11th and we hope that everyone will join with us to pray for a conversion for these misguided souls.

“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Matthew 5:44
