Also, please pray for the Pro-Life Committee's intentions:

1. For all mothers who have chosen Life, may they find joy, strength, and the love of God through their children.

2. For pregnant women, may God give them strength, health and peace.

3. For all who are practicing natural family planning that their faith and their family lives would be a witness to others of God's love and that they would continue to place their trust in God and conform their wills to God's will for them.

4. For the St. Wenceslaus Knights of Columbus and all of their pro-life initiatives, including their efforts toward spreading the word about true women’s healthcare through training practitioners in NaPro technology, and through support of Guiding Star projects in Iowa.

5. For each one of the Creighton Model Fertility Care System (CrMS) Practitioners

6. For all doctors, that the Holy Spirit will open their hearts to NaPro technology and CrMS
