We invite you to fast with us on Fridays.  We pray that our President may experience a conversion of heart and promote laws which protect the dignity of human life from conception until natural death.  For all those who serve us in elected office:  that they uphold and enact laws and policies that promote and preserve the dignity of marriage as the permanent, faithful, and fruitful union or a man and a woman.
