Faith and pro-life organizations are planning to form a prayer circle around the Supreme Court on the eve of the historic Obamacare arguments in March.

In a movement called “Justice at the Court,” groups will also lay 3,300 flowers around the court as a prophetic witness to the Supreme Court Justices, hoping to remind them of the 3,300 children abortion kills every day.

The prayer vigil is set for March 25 at 2 p.m. The groups will also hold prayer vigils at the Supreme Court at 8 a.m. on March 26-28 during the oral arguments.

Supreme Court officials expect the Obamacare case to be the biggest one at the Court since Bush v. Gore in 2000. If the president's health-care legislation is declared unconstitutional, it would end taxpayer subsidized abortions and unjust and immoral mandates forcing religious institutions to cover abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization in their health coverage for employees.

"Sadly, the president's health-care legislation crushes religious freedom and liberty with unjust mandates on faith institutions and forces taxpayers to pay for abortions,” says Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition and one of the organizers of Justice at the Court.

Mahoney and his collaborators are praying that Obamacare is declared unconstitutional so Congress can put forward health care legislation that will respect religious freedom, protect human life and honor the principles of our Constitution.

"When Roe v. Wade was decided, the Christian community was detached and uninvolved,” Mahoney says. “We want to make sure that is not the case this time as we challenge people of faith to publicly pray and speak out with boldness and passion."
