If you’re just joining us, click here to see what this prayer team is all about! While we are a “pro-life” prayer team, we, IN NO WAY, stand in judgment against those who have chosen abortion in the past! We hold you and your heart in the highest esteem and you are SO WELCOME here. Many women (and men) who’ve experienced abortion often hold onto the memory in silence, suppressing feelings of guilt, shame and grief for, quite often, years. If this describes you, and you would like more information on how to find hope and healing, please visit this site, or click on the “contact me” button above.
This is an early weekly post, as there is a LOT on the line this weekend with regard to government-funded health care. I received the following from Americans United for Life:
Pro-abortion forces have taken a dramatic step towards the tragedy of our tax dollars being used to fund abortions. The increase in the number of innocent lives lost in America – using the taxes you and I pay – is too high to count.
Senate Democrats, led by Harry Reid, have just unveiled a 2074-page government take over of health care bill. This radical bill DOES NOT include the Stupak-Pitts language from the House bill – that you helped pass — prohibiting federal funding of abortion.
Instead the pro-abortion forces in the Senate are winning approval of federal funding for abortion health care coverage. To help limit our ability to fight this radical change of existing law, these pro-abortion Democrats plan to hold the first vote on the bill THIS SATURDAY.
We are fortunate that there have been pro-life legislators on both sides of the aisle working tirelessly to keep abortion funding out of health-care reform! Praise God that He’s working mightily in this way! We just need to keep the pressure on to keep the lives of the unborn out of jeopardy!
My mouth’s full of great praise for God,
I’m singing his hallelujahs surrounded by crowds,
For He’s always at hand to take the side of the needy,
to rescue a life from the unjust judge.
Psalm 109:30-31 MSG
Yes Melinda, there is a lot on the line! I have been calling and emailing all week. The enemy would like us to tire of our efforts, but we do serve a mighty God and He gives us all we need to carry on!
Bless all your efforts on His behalf this day!
Emailed my senators a couple of days ago. Praying…
Thank God He has posted watchmen (and watchwomen) to keep us focused. Thank you.
Praying! Thank you for staying on top of things & keeping us in the know…
Praying… I saw your other blog "Standing in the Gap" struck me, we have a friend who was in a terrible auto accident, his father refered to his prayer warriors as those who stand in the gap.
Thank you, Melinda for taking this on and speaking for us. I'm praying that the Senators and Congressmen that seem to ignore their constituents that don't agree with them will open their eyes and ears this time. I agree with what you're saying and will continue to pray that God's hands will be all over this bill!
Your post on Beth's Thanksgiving traditions caught my eye when you said that after 11 years you had moved back to Texas. We too just moved back and love being so close to family. Houston is home but we're in College Station. Our daughter lives in California and our son is in Colorado, the only two drawbacks of living here!
Bless you and all you do! My prayers are with you.
