Happy Easter! How appropriate that as we celebrate new life through Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection, we also mark the end of our first quarter praying together for new life! This is our 12th week as a prayer team, and I pray that if you originally committed to pray for 3 months, you’ll consider extending your commitment for another three, six or more!
If you’re like me, you’ve been wondering about the results of Red Envelope Day. You may have received this article linked from an email if you committed to participate, but if not, here is an excerpt to do some praising over!
The White House mail office has confirmed it received a “deluge” of as many as 2.25 million red envelopes symbolizing the empty promise of lives snuffed out in abortion in a massive campaign that was larger than most White House mailing movements in the last 35 years.
White House mail worker “Steve” has handled letters for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for more than three decades. Every single package and letter destined for the White House goes through his office.
Asked if he has seen a flood of red envelopes bound for the White House, Steve chuckled.
“Uh, yes,” he said emphatically. “Believe me, they made it here.”
Steve said while Obama has been occupied in Europe, his administration has noticed millions of red envelopes on behalf of aborted children.
“Quite frankly, there was definitely a deluge of mail coming through,” he laughed. “I had to handle them all.”
“I’ve been here 35 years, so I’ve seen presidents come and go,” Steve told WND. “This campaign ranks up there with the big ones.”
As always, sign in, and if you’re renewing or extending your commitment, let us know that too! (That also goes for the 237 of you over on Facebook!)
AMEN! May the Lord do a MIGHTY work in the heart of our President. May the 2.25 million red envelopes encourage him to reconsider his position.
May the lives of the yet-to-be born babies be saved!

How I pray he got the message. I’m so discouraged with him. I just often feel numb where he’s concerned. God help me not to be bitter, but to continue to pray for his heart.
Thanks, Melinda, for the reminder.
I am still praying. I do wish he would get the message that his thinking is not according to God’s plans.
WOW WOW WOW!!!! Praying with you Melinda. God is definitely doing something HUGE.
Love praying with you,
Amen and Amen!
I’m still praying…think I neglect to post @ times but still praying.
Have u heard about the Purple Envelope Project? This is a great idea to support a crises pregnancy center.
God Bless you for all you are doing to encourage others to pray for the pre-born and to pray for our Presidents heart to be changed by God.
