Prayer for the Victory of Life and Freedom in NIFLA Supreme Court Case

The Supreme Court has accepted the case, NIFLA v. Becerra, a case that defends pregnancy centers against unjust laws that try to force them to tell their clients where they can get abortions.

These pregnancy centers exist to save lives and provide alternatives to abortion, not to help people kill their children. This case defends these centers against forced speech and cooperation in the evil of abortion. The case was introduced by our friends and colleagues at NIFLA, the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, led by Tom Glessner.

Priests for Life has joined a Friend of the Court brief on behalf of the pregnancy centers, and you can read it here.

The Court will hear oral arguments on Tuesday, March 20th, at which time we invite you to a big rally outside the Supreme Court.

And leading up to that day, we have a prayer campaign for victory in this case. Please join us in saying the prayer below each day.



Prayer for the Victory of Life and Freedom 

Lord God,
You are the Author of Life and Freedom.
In your Spirit, we have the freedom of the
children of God, 
And in your Name, we promote the freedom of all
To seek, embrace, and live the truth of your Word.

In that freedom, Lord, we your people stand
with Life and for Life.
We reject whatever destroys life,
And we refuse to cooperate in what is evil.

At this moment, therefore, when our
government has decided
To force us to cooperate in evil,

We pray for the grace to be faithful to you
And to oppose the unjust laws and mandates
That have been imposed upon us and our institutions.
We pray for the conversion of those in civil authority
Who fail to appreciate the demands of conscience.
We pray for the complete reversal of all policies
That permit the destruction of life
Or coerce the cooperation of your people
In the taking of life.

In particular we pray that the case 
Which now seeks to defend pregnancy centers
May be decided rightly,
And thereby protect the freedom of all.

Father, may Your Kingdom come,
And let your people rejoice in the victory of life
and freedom.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen
