Luxembourg: Push to legalize euthanasia

Prayer December 2, 2008

Dear friends,

to-day we got the news, that our Grand-Duke Henri will refuse to sign
the coming law allowing euthanasia. He is standing before a big
challenge. Nearly all political parties are willing to reduce the
Grand-Duke's political power; they are speaking of an institutional
crisis, but we believe it's a crisis of authority and faith to the

Please pray:
1. for our Grand-Duke that he will persist in his point of view.
2. that his example will encourage some more parliamentarians to vote
against this law
3. for our country that people may recognize that no man has the right
to decide on the death of old and sick people and that they will be
thankful for a head of state who puts God's law over his own power.

God bless you

Roland Kirsch
president EA Luxembourg
