Praying for Elections

ChelseaAmendment 2, Politics, Prayer1 Comment

Last night there was a Prayer Rally to Defeat Amendment 2 in Fulton Missouri. It was a wonderful time of praise and worship calling on God to help us defeat Amendment 2 tomorrow. I gave a little pep talk during the rally. I had to write out what I was going to say of course (there is a link to it at the end of this post). It was a little different setting than what I’m used to speaking in front of. But I think I pulled it off ok. Besides me there was a wonderful band, a couple of ministers that gave very energetic praises and Mitch Hubbard, the Callaway County coordinator for Missourians Against Human Cloning. Mitch has been doing a fabulous job travelling around the area coordinating events and educating people. I have been to a couple of presentations with him so I had to give him some recognition here. Indeed all of the MAHC coordinators have been working their tails off trying to reach all of the Missouri voters since this issue has come before us and they deserve all of our appreciation.

Tonight there will be a Mass of the Holy Spirit at the Cathedral church in Jefferson City (my parish) followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and 24 hour Eucharistic Adoration for voters and candidates seeking office. These rallies and prayer vigils remind us that, as hard as we work here on the ground, ultimately the glory belongs to God. Without God we would not have gotten as far as we have. So for the next day let us continue to pray that these elections will reflect the most holy Will of God. It’s been an amazing grassroots effort and we won’t stop until the last person casts their vote. And even then our job is far from over. Win or lose, we must look to the future and work hard to rebuild a culture of life!
