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.

We’ve been praying together for almost a year now, for President Obama’s heart on the subject of abortion. We’ve prayed for legislators and legislation and persons of influence, but we really haven’t focused on a very important and obvious person of influence: Michelle Obama.

In the past, the First Lady was much more vocal about her stand on abortion rights. However, today she is understandably working hard to remain neutral and uncontroversial on the topic. In a recent address about healthcare reform, she avoiding mentioning it altogether, even though it is the very topic that threatens to derail the bill. We have to assume, however, that behind closed doors, the President and First Lady discuss important issues. Of all the voices that speak their opinions to her husband, Mrs. Obama’s is likely one of the loudest and most trusted.

So, this week let’s focus our prayer on Michelle Obama and an opening of her eyes…a softening of her heart.


A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds.
Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it.
Proverbs 31:10 MSG

Father God, we come to You today – many believers, one voice – to stand for life. Lord we pray today for Michelle Obama. She has the ear and trust of the man who is making decisions that effect all of us, and, as is our focus here, the fate of the unborn. Father, as she hears the voices of those standing for life in an unprecedented way, help her to process it in an unprecedented way, seeing abortion for the devastation it is. Believing You will change HER heart to change HIS, we pray in the MIGHTY, LIFE-GIVING NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, Amen.
