I just read an article online that there are a group of priests and people that gather on the steps of the Capitol Bldg. in Wisconsin on Thursday evenings to pray for Romney and Ryan and their families. And, of course, this is being attacked by atheists.

I am so very concerned about what will happen to our country if Romney and Ryan don't win the election, and truly I don't know anything better to do than to start praying for them. And so, I thought that perhaps as a Catholic Match community we could individually pray for Romney and Ryan and the success of their campaign and their election victory, but all do this on Thursday nights at the same time if possible (for wherever 2 or more are gathered in my name ...).

So, if anyone would like to join me, I plan to pray on Thursday nights for this intention at 9PM Central Time (for roughly 20 minutes). That would be 10PM Eastern Time, 9PM Central Time, 8PM Mountain Time and 7PM Pacific Time (if you can fit it into your schedule). This would be for the next 8 weeks until the election.

We could post some prayers on this thread during the week - perhaps to St. Thomas More, St. Jude, Our Lady of the Nation, the Holy Spirit, etc.

As a group of committed Catholics we know the power of prayer. Let us ask Jesus to look kindly on Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and the Holy Spirit to guide them in their election campaign and debates.

We trust in Your Mercy, Jesus. theheart rose Praying

PRAYER FOR FIRST DAY OF NOVENA TO ST. THOMAS MORE

Dear St. Thomas More, in your earthly life, you were a model of prudence. You never thrust yourself rashly into any serious undertaking; instead, you tested the strength of your power and waited on God's will in prayer and penance, then boldly carried it out without hesitation. Through your prayers and intercession, obtain for us the virtues of patience, prudence, wisdom and courage.

Our Father . . .
Hail Mary . . .
Glory Be . . .

Glorious St. Thomas More, I beg you to take up our cause, confident that you will advocate for us before God's Throne with the same zeal and diligence that marked your career on earth. If it be in accord with God's will, obtain for us the favor we seek, namely ___________________.

Pray for us, O Blessed St. Thomas More.
That we may faithfully follow you on the hard road that leads to the narrow gate of eternal life.


(I will post one day of this novena each week until all nine days are posted in this thread.)

Thank you Mercy, Kat, Brenda, Marian, Adrienne, and MaryAnne for joining in these prayers. I'm hoping we're creating a virtual prayer group for Thursday night!
