defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness
and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell,
satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
There are many reasons to pray and fast, including the major financial crisis taking place right now. God gives us a free will. What we do with it matters. Our present economy reveals that collectively, as a society, we have not used that free will well. How many of us look back at all of our materialistic purchases with debt staring us in the face at a time when the job market is collapsing? There is no shortage of greed emerging in news stories.
But, the financial crisis is only one part of it.
We have a "culture of death" presidential candidate in the lead. Organizations like ACORN are trying to steal the election through fraud for him. Obama supporters have been carefully removing damaging articles from the web trying to hide the extent of his involvement with ACORN. Except, as that Cleveland Leader article goes on to explain, things don't disappear forever from the internet.
Much is at stake right now, from the lives of the unborn to democracy as we know it in America.
So, I bid you, pray. Head to adoration. Fast. Offer up sacrifices.
