Pray for...
The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones. If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? 
- Lk 16:10-11

Daily Prayer to End Abortion
 Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life and for the lives of all my
brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than
abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the resurrection of
Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
 Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
