The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. on March 25, 2014, to address the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of individuals to operate a family business without violating their faith. The Supreme Court agreed to take up this appeal in November and will review whether the Green family should be required through employee health insurance to provide and pay for life-terminating drugs and devices against their religious beliefs.

Pray this for 9 days in preparation, beginning Monday 17 March

Christ the Lord has called us out of darkness into his marvelous light. Let us turn to him in humble but fervent petition, seeking the grace to root out from our hearts all trace of darkness, and all that holds us back from walking in the full freedom of the children of God. As Christ is our great model for that inner freedom, enabling us to do the right, let us turn to him with confidence that we, too, may follow Christ to the fullness of spiritual freedom.

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 & 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.
