Day 6 of 40 Days of Prayer

Dear Christian Sisters,

My apologies for not getting this prayer to you this morning. I have a sick boy in the house, so I’ve been busy making chicken soup and cuddling.

Let us continue to pray with my friend Heidi for a turn in the abortion-mindedness of our country.

Lord,

The media is shifting away from the abortion topic, even the conservative media. I guess it’s okay because they are news outlets and their job is to report the news, not lament tragedies.

I see a smidge less traffic on social media regarding this topic, too. People’s minds are moving on. There is an unending list of things to pray for, be passionate about, and bring to public awareness. The adversary is prowling around, after all, looking for someone to devour.

But I refuse to let this die. There are too many deaths already, and the battle rages on, day in and day out.

Kindle in us, Oh Lord, the energy and passion, the creativity and ability to speak and to move. Give us the battle plan and motivate your people.

Our strength comes from you, our hope is in you and all we ask is for mercy. For the babies.

And for the mothers, and the fathers, and the abortion providers, and for the general mindset of the average Joe, we ask for your mercy for them all. Turn the tide of our death and doom culture into one that cherishes the goodness of life, celebrates wisdom and good choices and finds joy in putting the needs of others first.

You, Lord God, specialize in redemption stories. Stories of miraculous healing and bringing hope and life out of the ashes.

We’re dwelling in the ashes and we desperately need regenerating. Humble our hearts, Lord, and cause your people to pray. We long to see the end of this bloody era of carnage. Lord, please.

In Christ,

Cheryl

Cheryl Krichbaum, author of ReTested, has a burning passion to change the conversation about abortion so that abortion-minded women and men know the vitality draining consequences of abortion on themselves. In response to the #shoutyourabortion movement, the Faces of Abortion Series of books boldly speaks the truth about the death that abortion causes to not just babies but also to women’s souls. Cheryl invests her time writing, speaking, and designing Bible studies to help Christians know what both the Old and New Testaments say about the sanctity of life and the sanctity of sex, how to pray for the end of abortion in The Church and in our communities, and how to talk to the abortion-minded.
