With my heart in a better place this week, than last, I sit down to write this post. I hope as you read that you find your own heart beating with better, more eternal, perspective, as well.

I received an update from AUL this week, with news of a “re-energizing” of the pro-life movement. As we’ve discussed before, all the decisions being made against life have served to disturb pro-lifers into action; people who’ve remained comfortably silent are now voicing their opposition and it’s causing a stir. Even the Washington Post has noticed. With the Supreme Court nominees hanging in the balance, our voices need to be heard, loud and clear! However, EVERY BIT, IF NOT MORE IMPORTANT, is the unification of Christian Pro-lifers in prayer.

When things in the world spin seemingly out of control, it’s on our knees that we discover our grounding. It’s there that we realize afresh that the Lord commands the earth’s rotation – not our politicians, and not US. As we take seriously the task laid before us to be the voice for the voiceless, and let the great need re-energize our forces, let us also allow this “fresh wind” to fuel our prayer life with a “fresh fire”.


“O LORD, God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and obey his commands, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. Nehemiah 1:5-6 NIV

Father God, we come to you today – many believers, one voice – to stand for life. Father, we praise You that You are in control and need nothing more from us than a bended knee and a sincere and grateful heart as we make pleas on behalf of our president and our country. So, Lord we come to You today and ask that You continue to infuse our country’s pro-lifers with a new energy and resolve to stand up for what’s right; that You continue to surprise Washington with the polling numbers and the realization that the “majority of the country” is NOT in line with an attitude of convenience, but one of responsibility. Do a great work in our president’s heart. Change one heart for many. Do it Lord, so the world can fall to their faces at the wonder and glory of YOU. It’s in the MIGHTY, LIFE-GIVING NAME OF JESUS CHRIST we pray, Amen.
