Day 9 (February 8th) Novena

For the work and mission of Culture of Life Africa 
Today we pray for: 
-Culture of Life Africa 
– All the people of goodwill who generously work and collaborate with Culture of Life Africa 
-All the excellent organisations that collaborate with Culture of Life Africa in protecting the African people from the Culture of Death 
-All the upcoming missions, events and activities of Culture of Life Africa aimed at propagating the message of life and dignity in Africa 
At this time, when the threat of the Culture of Death is real and imminent in the undeniable attempts to limit, suppress and even destroy the source of human life, Culture of Life Africa was founded to preserve and promote, through good information, education and sensitisation, an authentic Culture of Life and Civilization of Love for the people of Africa. 
The proponents of the Culture of Death continue trying to ensnare and enslave Africa, they are doing this in their increasing numbers of “aid” projects dedicated to “family planning” as a most important point in development for the African people, in their morally objectionable condom-campaigns among the young and impressionable African youth, in the tireless efforts of the well-funded foreign Abortion Lobbyists pushing African nations towards legalised abortion and in the unconscionable insistence of the LGBT activists to impose their ideologies in Africa. 
With all these forces raising a cultural storm on the Continent of Africa, the calling and mission of Culture of Life Africa is to raise awareness and encourage the Africans within this storm, to hold fast unto their Culture of Life that recognises the sanctity of
life from the womb, their celebration of motherhood, their love of family and their remarkable faith. 
On this anniversary day of Culture of Life Africa, we humbly ask for your prayers because our mission is not an easy one. We need fortitude, fidelity and good friendships on this journey. 
So for all of this, let us ask for the help and intercession of our beloved friend and Patron Saint Josephine Bakhita whose feast day is also today, may she stand with us and pray for us in our mission against cultural enslavement of the African people…
?St. Josephine Bakhita, you were sold into slavery as a child and endured untold hardship and suffering. Once liberated from your physical enslavement, you found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church. 
O St. Josephine Bakhita, assist all those who are trapped in a state of slavery; intercede with God on their behalf so that they will be released from their chains of captivity. 
Those whom man enslaves, let God set free. 
Provide comfort to survivors of slavery and let them look to you as an example of hope and faith. Help all survivors find healing from their wounds. 
We ask for your prayers and intercessions for those enslaved among us.     

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
