A call for election eve prayer

by Carla Hinton Published: September 17, 2008
Concerned Roman Catholics of America is calling on all Catholics and Christians to ask their pastors to allow them to conduct all-night prayer vigils on the night before the U.S. presidential election.

Kenneth M. Fisher, the group’s founder and chairman, said Christians need to pray for God-loving and fearing candidates throughout the country ”so that the present course of moral decay, so evident today in our society, can be reversed and ‘One Nation Under God’ can be once again established, especially the ‘inalienable right to life’, ” Fisher said in a statement released through Christian Newswire.
