Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,
Let us pray with Heidi that we become a culture that first does no harm.
I am shaken by the things I see and hear, by the violence of the abortion procedure described by Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, before Congress yesterday; by the video of the current abortionist calmly sifting through a bloody pan of tiny dismembered legs and arms, and a sweet little face, crushed horribly out of shape, while crooning about the life he has given back to the mother.
I am shaken by Medical professionals who have vowed to “first do no harm,” and yet wreak destruction and death every day; by mothers who deny their own children; by fathers who deny responsibility; by a legal culture that respects the life of unborn animals yet denies the life of unborn human beings; by a social culture that shouts “RIGHTS,” and “CHOICE,” and denies any and every RESPONSIBILITY.
I am shaken by the soothing rhetoric of for-profit entities who spread lies to assure women their procedure is safe and painless and will give them back their freedom–as long as they can front the money.
I am shaken by our nation of strong Christians who remain silent on this, the most important life and death emergency in our nation’s history. Where are we?
Lord God, Thank You for being a true father who loves without conditions, who protects with no strings attached, who fights for continued relationship with his children.
Thank You for valuing our lives and nourishing our growth and always giving us good gifts.
Bring this kind of reality to our culture, Father, we pray! Bring goodness, rightness, and true LIFE to our cultural mindset.
Thank You for Your awesome example and for the hope that You fill us with. We know you hear us and our prayers move Your mighty heart.
We look forward to bringing You more glory and to seeing the end of this shocking horror of abortion in the United States. We implore You, Heavenly Father.
In Jesus Mighty Name we pray!
