Dear Christian Sisters,
Let’s call out for healing! Please pray along with Heidi as one voice to the Lord.
Holy Lord God Almighty,
2,310 babies died brutal deaths in our country today. Today.
I found a website that counts them in real time.
All those particular fingerprints, maturing brains, fluttering eyelids, and thumbs in mouths will never see the light of day. Today, while we went about our normal Sunday, they have had their moments of panic and pain. They have been ripped and seared and murdered in levels of violence not seen elsewhere. It is mind numbing, and I find myself in another round of shock.
I just learned that NY is not alone in its quest to kill children, although NY seems alone in its desire to publicly celebrate the killing of children. The states with the most lenient abortion laws–up to birth– are Oregon, Vermont, Colorado, New Hampshire, the District of Columbia, Alaska, New Jersey, and New Mexico. If I feel sick to my stomach and emotionally overcome, Lord God, how much more offensive must it be to You.
We know you so well. We know You act in Love–You define yourself as Love. We’ve seen your answers to prayers. We know Your promises and Your goodness. We’ve experienced Your presence, and we live in the midst of Your mighty blessings. We also know your justice, graciously meted out on the cross for our sins, but also present in modern day culture. I can’t imagine a worse judgement than this slaughter of innocents.
If Your people who are called by your name will humble themselves and pray, if we seek your face, and turn from our wicked ways; then will You hear from heaven, and will forgive our sin, and will heal our land. Our land is in desperate need of healing, but we need humility, seeking, and turning just as badly. Cause Your people to humble themselves and pray, Oh Lord God, to make us more like You, and to bring an end to the era of abortion in the United States.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus we pray,
Let us also remember that for every baby killed, a woman’s vitality is drained away, and she probably doesn’t even know it. And then there are the men who pressured her or paid for the abortion or the moms and friends who supported her choice or the doctors who recommended aborting.
There are so many people involved, and they all need Christ. They all need healing.
Let us be Christ’s ambassadors, leading them to the healing faith of Jesus Christ. Can you imagine how loud a chorus of trumpets we’d be against the pro-choice movement? A trumpet choir of post-abortive women and men who regret their “choice” will not be silenced.
If you know someone who needs healing from an abortion, help them find a post-abortion healing class from your local crisis pregnancy center or church. Surrendering the Secret is the class that I took. Freedom on this side of healing is amazing!
