.- Priests for Life launched an election novena yesterday, asking that “God to give believers the grace to vote in a way that advances the Culture of Life.”

The novena will run nine days, ending on Election Day, Nov. 7. The novena consists simply of saying a daily prayer prepared for this purpose.

“No act of violence claims more life than abortion, which kills some 3,500 children a day in America,” said national director Fr. Frank Pavone in a press release. “How can we build a society that feeds the poor if we can’t feed our own offspring; how can we welcome the immigrant if we can’t welcome our own children; how can we promote peace between nations if we cannot even maintain peace between a mother and her unborn child?”

Additional prayers have been composed for specific states that have important ballot measures related to abortion. The prayers are available at www.PrayerCampaign.org
