Bidding Prayer Against Abortion
Damian McLeish, Johannesburg – Our nation’s hospitals daily terminate the lives of many unborn infants by legalised abortion on demand. I thus respectfully ask our Catholic bishops to direct that the following prayer, or something similar, be made one of our Sunday Masses’ bidding prayers once a month.
“That Almighty God shall guide our rulers to end the daily killing of unborn infants in our nation’s hospitals by legalised abortion on demand.”
Almighty God, although infinitely merciful, is also infinitely good and just, and thus incapable of cooperating with the forces of evil.
He cannot continue to bless a nation which, unrepentant, continues the evil of abortion on demand.
This has resulted in the disasters now being experienced by many pro-abortion nations in the world today.
For this reason, and also because “It is sufficient for evil to flourish that good men do nothing”.
I urge all our nation to also write to our bishops as above at PO Box 941, Pretoria 0001.
