Del Rio Stand Up Rally
Friday, June 8 at 12 noon
We fight for justice in government with many weapons. We use Rallies like we’ll hold on June 8, we use our power to vote, we use our voices and pens so our representatives in government know our concerns. But we must never forget that the strongest weapon we have is prayer.
Temporal rulers will come and go, but God is the great king over all, so recourse to Him is where our confidence must ultimately last. It is well within His power to stop the Obama Administration’s pernicious HHS Mandate.
With that in mind, we are asking all people of faith to join in a united prayer effort to Stop the HHS Mandate. In preparation for the June 8 Rally, we are calling on everyone to join in the “Novena for a Reversal of the HHS Mandate” that was such a blessing in the lead up to the Rally in March, which begins today.
A novena is a nine day prayer sequence for a particular intention, in this case the Rally for Religious Freedom and the defeat of the HHS Mandate. Though the devotion has its roots in Catholic spirituality, the prayers here are ones that people of any Christian tradition can pray.
We will be posting the prayers for each day here on the Stand Up blog for the next nine days leading up to the June 8 Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom. Please join with us in this important prayer effort. Here is the prayer for today, May 30:
