Dear Christian Sisters,
My friend Heidi is a prayer warrior. Her response to New York’s late-term abortion legislation and all the abortion news since then has been to pray. May we all be like her.
With her permission, I am sharing her prayers with you so that we may pray as one voice.
The wind has been knocked out of us. The reality of the evil that has swept over and bound up this country for far too long is raw and real this day. The agenda moves forward. We watch agape as pink lights celebrate, CELEBRATE, the passage of a law allowing more of our babies to be butchered. And other states are contemplating similar measures. What is to be done?
While the snake slithers and laughs its bitter laugh, we come boldly to YOU, heavenly Father, grieving the terrified, agonized babies who die every day. How have we let this happen? How could we close our eyes and cover our ears? How could we let it fade into the background?
Our hands are bloody. Our sin is deep. But you, O Lord, you know. There is none like you. We need forgiveness and healing and a new direction. We need so much! Help us to pray. Hear us and forgive us. Show us the way forward, step by step.
We pray these things in the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
