Novena to Reverse HHS Mandate: Day 7

Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
We thank you, Father,
for the grace of repentance
and the power of conversion at work in Your people.

We thank You for Your Holy Spirit,
Who convicts us of sin and enlightens us
about how to please you.
Lord, enable Your people,
in the midst of current persecution and danger,
to live the spirit of repentance
ever more deeply and effectively.

For every moment we lacked courage in the past,
give us the grace to repent.
For every time we were silent when we should have spoken,
give us the grace to repent.
For every time we could have witnessed to life but did not,
give us the grace to repent.

Made strong by the spirit of repentance,
may Your people rise up
and reverse the tide of evil in our midst.

Enable us to defend our freedom
and to build a Culture of Life.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
