Prayer is THE best way to save lives...
There is a 24 - 48 hour time frame when a woman decides whether to keep or terminate her pregnancy. Options United's mobile app is designed to send you an urgent prayer alert, asking for your prayers and sacrifice right at the crucial moment, so as to win graces for the mother and child in need.
The Options United App lists services such as free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and post-abortion healing. App users, including friends and relatives of expectant mothers, are also just a click away to send a call for prayers to support pregnant women and girls in their decisions. As more and more people
use this app across the country, we will be able to build a culture of life, one action alert at a time...
On the 41st anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Archbishop José H. Gomez, joined by health leaders, mothers and their children launched the digital App designed to offer prayers, resources and support for thousands of women and girls nationwide in crisis pregnancies.
"No woman should ever face a pregnancy feeling alone, or desperate, or like she has no other options. These are our sisters. We cannot be indifferent to their fears. We need to be near to them, to help them in every way that we can. Please click to download this Options United app that allows you to pray for expectant mothers in Los Angeles and connect them to practical support."

You can begin saving lives today!
Launch the App for LIFE at your parish – Mother’s Day 2014.
The App for LIFE is not another parish program! Instead, it is a tool of the New Evangelization that can be used to enhance the prayer and service already existing in a parish. It is a tool that unites users in prayer throughout the day and in an online community where they can visibly see all of the other app users offering prayer at the same time.
How can we “launch” the App for LIFE in our parish? Everything you need is above: leaders’ guide, announcements, flyers, bulletin inserts. Take a look now, then join one of the conference calls to hear more and answer your questions.
Upcoming conference calls:
(PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES)
Does your parish already have activities on Mother’s Day? That’s okay. Your parish can “launch” the App for LIFE any Sunday. The attached promotional material does not have an expiration date.
Is the App for LIFE more technology than you are comfortable using? If it is, ask someone else in your parish, prayer group or prolife organization to be on the conference call instead. Together, we can build unity through prayer for LIFE!
Thank you for all the great work you do each day to build a Culture of LIFE in your community. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
