Fast with Terri

Terry Schiavo is dying. It has now been over four days since Terri has been denied food and water. Federal Judge Whittemore has just rejected the petition made possible by the special approval of Congress and President Bush to reinsert her feeding tube.

We are urgently calling Christians and all people of good will to fast in whatever way they can to restore Terri's feeding tube and for the full protection of her precious life.

Please join us in a solidarity of fasting with our sister, Terri, as long as she remains without food and water, in urgent petition to God for the protection of her life. Let us feel a small portion of Terri's hunger and thirst, and offer our fasting for an intervention of God for Terri and for our country, that we will not allow the direct killing of an innocent human being by starvation.

These next few days hold the final opportunity to save Terri's life. The transcendent value of human life demands every possible effort for its protection. Please join us, in whatever way you can, in a fast with Terri.

"And Jesus rebuked him, and the devil came out of him, and the child was cured...Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, 'Why could we not cast it out?'...Jesus said to them, "because of your unbelief...but this kind is not cast out except by prayer and fasting" (Mt. 17:18-21)."
