Premier Prayer Event Marks Tragic Commemoration of Roe vs. Wade
(Nashville, Tenn.) Jan. 14, 2014–The 20th Annual National Memorial for the Pre-Born and Their Mothers and Fathers will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 22, in Washington, D.C. With representatives from numerous Christian denominations and pro-life groups, this is the premier prayer event marking the tragic commemoration of Roe vs. Wade,which legalized abortion.
Every year, the National Memorial for the Preborn and Their Mothers and Fathers occurs in Washington, D.C., on the morning of the March for Life, Jan. 22. Gathering thousands of believers inside the historic Constitution Hall, prayer, song and powerful preaching are a hallmark of the service. This year, national director of Priests for Life, Rev. Frank Pavone will deliver the sermon. Leading prayers onstage will be the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; Rob Schenck, president of Faith & Action, and dozens of other men and women of God.
A statement issued by the National Prayer Service asserts, “We want to fill Constitution Hall with thousands of believers, and show the nation, and the media, that pro-life people are not going away, no matter how long the battle or how powerful the enemy! The prayers and message of this service will certainly convey that, and you won’t want to miss out on the inspiration. We are hoping for a good representation of people to show our love for the unborn and our commitment to ecumenism.”
The National Memorial for the Pre-Born and Their Mothers and Fathers is sponsored by The National Pro-Life Religious Council, The National Pro-Life Center on Capitol Hill, Faith and Action, Priests for Life, and Gospel of Life Ministries.
The prayer service will take place from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on Jan. 22, 2014 at DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D Street NW (18th and D St.), Washington, D.C. This event is free, no tickets are required and large groups are welcome.
