First Do No Harm: Day 11 of 40 Days of Prayer

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

Let us pray with Heidi that we become a culture that first does no harm.

Heavenly Father,

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!
Amen

In Christ,

Cheryl

Toddlers & Sea Turtles: 40 Days of Prayer Day 10

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

Let us continue to pray with Heidi for the end of abortion for we know that we are far more precious to God than even sea turtles.

Lord God,

It seems that the abuse of young children produces just about the most outrage our society can muster. It breaks our hearts and fills us with deep righteous anger to see toddlers and preschoolers being yelled at, yanked around, or neglected.

It is especially egregious because they have no escape, no recourse. Those who should be protecting them are the ones inflicting the damage and the children don’t have the resources or understanding to seek help.

So why is it that our hearts break for the toddlers who have no one protecting them, but not for the tiny babies?

Lord God, Almighty, we want them to live. We want them to be safe and warm–without trauma, or pain. We want them ALL to live, healthy, sick, male, female, from rape and incest. Every life is created by You and created in Your image, which means it is a life worth living.

The horrifying videos and dispassionate explanations of the abortion procedure that I’ve seen are so horrific and violent that there aren’t words to encompass it. We treat our dogs better. We pass laws to protect turtle eggs.

How long, Oh Lord, will you stay your hand of judgement? How many more silenced screams and how many more dismembered babies tossed out with the garbage? We see it, and we are crumbling with the guilt of it.

Bring redemption and healing and a swift end to this ferocious beast that devours our children. We cannot bear it any longer.

Father, we pray this in Christ’s most Powerful Name,
Amen

In Christ,

Cheryl
