An Election Prayer to Mary

In the last few days I have gotten many emails about what this country will be like if Mr. Obama becomes President. They are all very interesting and scary to read, and all far too long to post here. So instead I decided to post "An Election Prayer to Mary" that I got last week sometime. If I am reading the email correctly it was written by Men of the Sacred Hearts. Pray, fast, spend time in adoration. But no matter what happens, remember the words of Jesus, "What I am doing you do not know, but afterward you will understand".

An Election Prayer to Mary

O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection. Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God's law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life. Amen.

Isn't it nice, that as homeschoolers we are able to take the time during the day with our family to pray for these important issues?

God Bless.
