Election Prayer Campaign Launching

Priests for Life spearheads 18-week effort to seek God's will for November's races.

Focus on the Family

With Election Day just a few months away, a pro-family group is launching an 18-week prayer campaign early next month designed to see God's will done when voters go to the polls in November.    

"Prayer brings us the grace of a clarity of mind that we can see issues the way God sees them, that we can discern the proper hierarchy of importance," explained Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. 

Daily prayer, he added, results in more thoughts about the election itself.   

"If they commit to say the prayer every day, they're thinking about it everyday," he told Family News in Focus. "That will lead to them talking more about it and doing more about it."  

So the call is to activate believers to vote, focusing on the primacy of the right to life as an election issue.   

"You know what? If we don't have life, we don't have anything," Pavone said. "Therefore, we've got to put candidates in office who understand that as their first duty.  

"There is no more fundamental purpose of government than the protection of the lives of its citizens."  

Many denominations are coming together under the campaign's banner, according to Kirk Vanderswaagh of the National Pro-life Religious Council.

"Prayer is vitally important because that's part of how God accomplishes His work in His kingdom," he said. "And He cares about those who rule and so, if He cares, we care."
