Twenty weeks of praying! What an awesome privilege to join with you in covering our president and this great nation in prayer! Thanks for your continued commitment.

I’m sure you were just as dismayed as I to learn about the murder of late-term abortionist, George Tiller. Not only is it morally wrong, of course, but it does absolutely nothing for the pro-life movement, making us look like a bunch of radical extremists. Perhaps you remember our discussion of peaceful and respectful protest; this is one of those instances that makes me think it’s more important than ever that we stand firm, but act in respect and love.

There was an article this week in the Tampa Tribune about A Woman’s Place (Crisis Pregnancy Center) and it’s location RIGHT NEXT DOOR to one of the city’s largest abortion providers. Here’s an excerpt (for the complete article, click here):

For the last year, the ministry [A Woman’s Place] and All Women’s Health Center of North Tampa have operated side by side in separate buildings in a professional office complex on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.

And they’ve done it with no disruption, despite their polar opposite objectives.

“We’ve got a great relationship. Things are very peaceful around here,” says Heidi Mullis, the [abortion] clinic’s administrator. “I’ve even sent a few women over [to A Woman’s Place], if they just want a sonogram or if they’re still undecided about what to do.”

It’s continues…

[Pat] Layton and Mullis acknowledge they will never agree on the abortion issue. And they are equally adamant about the necessity of the different purposes their respective programs serve. But despite those differences, they can agree about staying on friendly terms and treating each other with respect.

“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” Mullis says. “Maybe if they took this attitude in places like the Middle East, we’d have a more peace in the world.”

Indeed. We’re never going to make strides without respect in our actions, backed with the power of prayer.


Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:18 NIV

Father God, we come to You today – many believers, one voice – to stand for life. Father, as we make our convictions known to others, help us to present ourselves in such a way that will point them to You. Show us how to make our actions line up with Your Word and be a reflection of Your love. And Father, help that love shine so brightly that our president and all those who are making decisions for the unborn would be unable to avoid it and the Truth it bears. Believing You will change one heart for many, we pray in the MIGHTY, LIFE-GIVING NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, Amen.
