40 Days of Prayer: Day 4

Dear Christian Sisters,

As we pray along with Heidi, we are also praying along with 40 Days for Life, which is the organization that loved Abby Johnson over the life line.

You can read (or listen to) Abby’s story in Unplanned,** which is also a movie that will soon be released on March 29. Put it on your calendar and go see it opening weekend!

Now let us continue to pray with Heidi for life!

Lord God Almighty,

We are rejoicing with Iowans who have scored BIG in this battle! Governor Kim Reynolds ratified a bill to make abortion after 6 weeks ILLEGAL, (except in the usual extreme cases). Since many women do not even know of their pregnancy by 6 weeks, You have just made Iowa a “sanctuary state” for the unborn. A safe haven for the innocent. We praise you, Father, for this refreshing victory.

Of course, lawsuits are planned and many are decrying the injustice of this action. The battle has likely just begun in Iowa and so we lift them up to You for safety, confidence, and bravery in the face of razor-sharp opposition.

But it isn’t enough just to limit abortion. We are begging You to make 2019 the complete end of the era of (legalized) abortion in the United States. It’s a big request, but You are bigger. It’s a huge paradigm shift, but you are capable of more. And of course, this one request is wrapped up in a whole lot more.

The end of the era requires a cultural transformation to value and celebrate LIFE at every level and in every form. We’re asking, Lord. We’re asking this massive thing because You are greater.

And we pray it in the precious Name of Jesus.
Amen

In Christ,

Cheryl
