Day 9: Interfaith Novena to Stop the HHS Mandate
Posted by Matt Yonke (March 25, 2014 at 5:00 am)
Today is the day. The Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, and the Hahn family, owners of Conestoga Wood Specialties, will represent all of us people of faith as they petition the Supreme Court to allow them to follow their consciences in how they run their businesses.
The need for prayer has never been greater.
Join us in praying the final day of this Novena, and if you’re in the area, join the rally and prayer vigil at the Supreme Court in support of these brave families starting at 9:30 a.m.!
Novena to Reverse HHS Mandate: Day 9
God of our Fathers,
we thank You for our nation,
founded by those who believed in Your Word
and came to this land as if out of the desert
to seek a place of freedom and rest.
We thank You for their conviction
that our rights come from You, our Creator,
and that government exists
to secure those rights,
and never to destroy or weaken them.
Now that we face unjust mandates
that call upon us to violate our conscience,
we pray for Your protection.
Keep us faithful to You in our every deed.
Grant that we may work for change
by being citizens who are active in the process
by which we elect our leaders.
Grant that by our efforts to educate and mobilize voters,
we may replace public officials who ignore Your law
with those who observe it faithfully.
Bless our nation’s upcoming elections.
As we rejoice that we are citizens of Your Kingdom,
so make us always faithful citizens on earth.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
