Prominent Clergy Group Launches Health Care Prayer Campaign on Facebook

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has invited tens of thousands of Churches across America this week to build "the largest prayer group in history" by urging them to promote membership in the "Pray to End Abortion" cause on Facebook.

Fr. Pavone said that the Facebook cause will enable believers to connect with one another and pray on an ongoing basis for the specific needs of the pro-life movement. The ongoing prayer campaign will provide specific prayers to be said jointly across the nation for specific needs.

Currently, a special prayer is posted regarding our nation's health care reform debate. Calling Jesus the "Divine Physician," the prayer intercedes for elected officials, that they will have "the humility to know that they are servants, not masters," and "the wisdom to realize that every life has equal value."

The prayer concludes, "Let every reform in our public policy be based on the reform of our hearts and minds."

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro- life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
