There is no doubt that we are facing a pivotal moment in history. This is “our time” to step up and see this “momentum shift” to its conclusion.
Please make every effort to get all of your friends and family to join this extremely important 90-day prayer crusade (January 1 to Easter Vigil) to rescue our culture and put an end to the killing of millions of innocent children through abortion. We believe God will hear us!!
On this Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we recall how, in 1531, an entire culture of Mexico turned, virtually overnight, from the brutal Aztec practice of human sacrifice to one of the mightiest Christian cultures on the planet. It is estimated that nine million Mexicans turned to our Lord, almost instantly, through the intercession of Our Lady.
Many of us have been praying for our country, and we are beginning to see a shift that, quite frankly, is astounding. Signs abound, such as the outrage over the objectification of women, and liberal news sources reporting on the dangerous side effects of contraception and abortion.
As we pray for the conversion of our country, we have a unique opportunity to end pre-born child killing through a Personhood Proclamation Presidential Executive Order.
January 14, 2018 is the 30th Anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s Personhood Proclamation. It was not a Presidential Executive Order. But now with President Trump, we have an opportunity for a Presidential Executive Order.
We need to pray for the President to take this action which will force for the Courts to adjudicate personhood and encourage him by, first, signing the petition at Personhoodproclamation.com and sending a message to President Trump. For complete campaign and how to email, call, tweet, and otherwise contact the President, Protestchildkilling.com
But, more than anything else, this is our time to “go all in” with our prayer and penances, as we call out to (beg!!) God, through the intercession of Our Lady, to bring an end to the murder of millions of innocents through abortion.
When the Apostles asked the Savior why they had been unable to drive the evil spirit from a demoniac, Our Lord gave a “key” for what intensifies or increases the power of our prayers: “This kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting“ (Matthew 17:21). So, too, the evil which today torments humanity can be conquered only by a world-wide crusade of prayer *and* penance.
That will be the intensity of this 90-day challenge of prayer and penance for the babies!!
Nineveh 90 – the 90 days from January 1 to March 31 – is inspired by the excellent program – Exodus 90 – designed exclusively for men by Fr. Brian Doerr and others. Men may want to choose the even more rigorous Exodus 90 (sign-up HERE), and use it for our 90-day journey.
For our Nineveh 90 challenge, we are embracing the great values of prayer, mortification, a support system, and the research in the behavioral sciences that says 90 days is about the time needed to change bad habits … if we want to see our world “turn,” we must demonstrate to God our willingness to “turn first.”
We will also be using some of the tried and true very powerful supernatural elements. Namely, the Brown Scapular, 54 Day Rosary Novena, and the 33 Day Preparation for Marian Consecration.
Why Nineveh 90? Recall the story of Nineveh in the Book of Jonah …
Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.”
Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.
When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh:
“By the decree of the king and his nobles:
Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.”
When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened (Jonah 3:3-10)
They “Turned!!” There was a momentum shift back to God!!!
“Consecration Day” will be on March 31, Easter Vigil, and the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Cross.
Nineveh 90 – Ten Elements
Prayer Intention for 54 Day Rosary Novena: Personal Holiness and for an End to Abortion. Let’s pray for a world-wide momentum shift back to God!!
Sundays and Solemnities: May be a day of relaxed discipline, but not abandoned. (Sleep in an extra hour, cream in your coffee, a dessert, a beer, etc.)

You are encouraged (not required) to join the Angelic Warfare Confraternity
Please join our “Special Forces Training” FB group to receive instructions and form Nineveh 90 squads and buddies: SPECIAL FORCES TRAINING
From Michelle Linn Fallon: “I want to encourage everyone thinking about this to do it. I did this in a way without calling it this beginning in September when we did the first novena for our nation. I got up before 6am and worked up to 11 workouts a week. I’ve lost 40 pounds. I look great. I feel great. I’ve lost my taste for sweets. Broken my addiction to soft drinks from childhood. I have little sugar, little dairy and don’t want it. I am no longer considered obese and only slightly overweight according to my doctor. In 10 pounds my BMI will be normal again. My prayer life is more consistent. I hardly miss a day on this second novena so I rarely have days to make up prayers. I’ve joined a lay apostolate. Amazing things happen when you offer the discipline to God. Amazing prayers have been answered for me and I’ve witnessed miracles in my life. I can’t fast on bread because I can’t eat bread. But I can deny myself other things. I have health issues that keep me from some of the fasting things. But I can deny myself sleeping in when I want to and pray instead. It’s all habits. Do what you can do and focus on that. Let God do the rest. He will!”
