So what and who are the LIFE Runners? We checked out their website to learn more. The vision is simple “Life Runners will pray and run as a team until they cross the finish line that ends abortion.”
Here is the LIFE Runners Creed: We believe in the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death. We run as a Prayer, that children in the womb may be protected, so that they may be born and welcomed into the Christian community by baptism. We run to build Endurance, for the race is long and we must keep our eyes fixed on You Lord. We run for Awareness, that the eyes of all people may be transformed and see every human life as a reflection of Your glory Lord. We run for Charity, to provide support for mothers and fathers who are in agony because they are tempted to abort their child. We run to End abortion, for Christ has destroyed the power of death, and therefore the power of abortion. Guard us all, born and unborn, with Your PEACE, Lord. For in You, life is victorious. We pray and run in Your name, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. * Co-founder Rich Reich was inspired to write the LIFE Runners Creed after praying in front of an abortion mill in Orlando, FL on 6 Nov 2010. Co-founder Pat Castle first used this publicly as an opening prayer at the Sioux Falls Alpha Center Banquet on 11 Apr 2011.
Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina is the Patron Saint of the Life Runners. To learn more visit http://run.lifegroup413.org/life-runners-creed/
