Prayer for Religious Liberty

The Catholic Bishops of United States are fighting the “HHS Insurance Mandate for Contraception/Sterilization Coverage” as it an attack on the rights of conscience. We need to support our Bishops and pray for Religious Freedom. The following prayers may be used in solidarity with the bishops’ call to penance and prayer to restore religious freedom & conscience protections in the United States.

O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard
on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—
this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Mary Immaculate, Patroness of the United States of America, Pray for Us.
Our Lady if Guadalupe, Patroness of all the Americas and of unborn children, Pray for Us.
St. Thomas More, Patron of Religious Freedom, Pray for Us.
