Just joining us? Go here to catch up and join the movement!
How incredible that we are nearing our half-way mark for this year of praying together! I’m so encouraged by everyone’s commitment to keep at it, and I want to share with you something that I hope will encourage you, as well.
Last week, I read a post on my friend Cheryl’s blog. Cheryl is a fellow prayer team member and I’m taking the following text directly from her post:
During his sermon, Dr. Page mentioned this committee and the fact that he never dreamed he would have this kind of opportunity. He also made this statement, (it’s not an exact quote but it’s pretty close),“I know that I am the ‘right-wing fundamentalist’ on this committee but I will unashamedly stand and be voice for the Pro-Life movement and the unborn child.” To which the congregation gave resounding applause and lots of AMENS, myself included.
After the service, Steven and I got to meet Dr. Page and share with him that we live in Millen, he used to pastor in Augusta so he was very familiar with Millen. I then shared with him that I am part of agroup of bloggers [that’s us!] whose purpose is to pray and ask God to change President Obama’s heart on abortion. Dr. Page was so encouraged and asked us to keep praying. He said that he has a very good relationship with President Obama but that it gets “pretty tense” when it comes to the issue of abortion.
I was so excited about this. It’s so easy to get discouraged when you’re praying and not seeing any change. But God really used this to encourage me and to renew my passion about praying for our President.So my challenge to you is, as we pray for our President, let’s lift up Dr. Page as well. God has placed him in a key position for a reason.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.
Proverbs 12:15 ESV
Still praying with you. God is always working – whether we see it or not. We should pray for his girls too – they may be the one to show him the way.
There was specific prayer and a resolution for our President http://www.sbc.net/redirect.asp?url=http://www.bpnews.net/
i continue to pray for not only a change in our Presidents heart but for ours in lifting him up to the Lord.
thanks for a mighty fine half a year Melinda
Thanks for sharing this, Melinda. It IS encouraging to hear of godly men like this who have the opportunity to influence Pres. Obama.
Still praying with you — and thanks so much for your comment yesterday letting me know you're praying for my kids. I appreciate you, friend!
Praying in Oregon.
Hubby and I went out of town on Monday. I will pray tonight about this.
While on the road, a US highway, I saw a sign put up by the Lutherans for Life. The sign reads: Abortion kills 4,000 lives a day. It made me stop and think.
