Priests’ Group Announces Prayer Campaign for Elections 2006
Washington DC – Priests for Life, recently recognized as one
of the top 20 Christian political organizations, announced today that it is
leading an 18-week prayer campaign to prepare the nation for the 2006 elections.
“This is a double-novena, a pair of nine-week periods of
prayer, starting on Tuesday the Fourth of July, and concluding on Tuesday,
November 7, which is Election Day,” explained Fr. Frank Pavone, National
Director of Priests for Life.
“The intentions of the campaign are that citizens take an
active role in the elections and understand that the most important issue is
abortion,” Fr. Pavone said.
A special website,
www.PrayerCampaign.org, has been set
up for the prayer campaign. People are invited to say each day a prayer
specially composed for the campaign. The prayer can be found on the website, and
visitors can indicate online their intention to participate.
To accompany the campaign, Priests for Life is also publishing
a booklet called
“Ten Easy Steps to Voting with a Clear Conscience.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life
organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information,
