The National Night of Prayer for Life is a time for eucharistic adoration and prayer for the unborn, praying for the end to abortion and for protection of the sanctity of human life. The evening prayer bridges the feast of the Immaculate Conception on Thursday, Dec. 8, and the anniversary of Our Lady of Guadalupe's first apparition to St. Juan Diego on Friday, Dec. 9. Prayers are offered through the intercession of the Blessed Mother for the establishment of a culture of life.
