*Intercessory Fasting and Prayer Team
You are invited to join our Fasting and Prayer Team by taking one day a week to pray and fast for all pro-life matters. Each week on the selected day of the week, the Team Member will fast and spend time in prayer for matters pertaining to pro-life and for a world where abortion is unthinkable.
Fasting can be from traditional things like food or meals or it can be non-traditional, like fasting from television, the internet/social media, or any activity that can be replaced with prayer time. Designate time during this day praying for pro-life matters. Some pray during Adoration and others say a rosary as part of their designated prayer time.
Sign up here to be added to the Intercessory Fasting and Prayer Team.
