The largest pro-life organization in the world is seeking people who are willing to assist in its pro-life mission through a new e-mail prayer network.
Human Life International (HLI) will launch the new prayer program Dec. 3, on the feast day of St. Francis Xavier, the patron saint of missionaries, in an effort to draw people into prayer for the pro-life missions around the world.
Prayer missionaries would receive monthly bulletins by e-mail, starting Dec. 3, asking for prayers for HLI projects and offices around the world. They would also receive “HLI prayer alerts” for special projects or urgent needs.
To be a prayer missionary would involve praying daily for HLI, as well as for the intentions one would receive by e-mail. One would also prayerfully “adopt” an HLI branch or affiliate in one of the 50 countries in which HLI operates. HLI also asks prayer missionaries to make a personal consecration to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of HLI, on her feast day, Dec. 12.
