Praying for the conversion of President Obama

Remember the days when we used to pray for the conversion of Russia after mass? Those prayers were traced back to requests made by Our Lady of Fatima.

Well, communism has ended in the Soviet Union and there are more baptisms per capita in Moscow than in Paris. Who's to know? Did is work?

We have entered another era and apparently we need more conversion prayers. The latest are not aimed at an entire nation - just one lonely soul, our president.

I received this prayer card from an NCR reader. It calls for his conversion and was inserted into the Sunday parish bulletin recently at Sacred Heart parish in Frontenanc, Kansas.

Have you seen these prayer cards in other parishes?

Certainly, you will agree, our president can use all the prayers he can get.
