“A Prayer For Life”

January 27, 2017

Praying man Father, You established the very essence of what truth is, by its definition as well as its character quality. Truth is not subject to our moods, circumstances or desires, but it is absolutely established by Your Holy Scriptures. Though deception is a way of life for many people help us to be people of truth. Help us restrain from telling half-truths, twisting facts in our favor, or practicing any form of deception. We desire to be people of truth who are not harsh or proud. We want to be Your representatives, Father, who are humble and obedient as we speak the truth in love. Amen.

A Prayer For Life: Father, we thank You for the gift of life. We bless the courageous girls and women who, in the most difficult of circumstances, choose to give life over choosing to dispose of their “problem.” We thank You for the vast groups of men and women who lend support to crisis pregnancies, who assist young women who made that choice, to those who take in and raise children who are given up for adoption. We thank You for those who have dedicated their lives to this tremendous cause, keeping it very much alive so that those who view abortion as a viable option, will come to realize that Your Word is the first and final authority on life, not the fallible legislation, public opinion or court decisions of our day.

Bless those who speak today, those who march, and those who work among pregnant girls and women who are presently in the very midst of making a life or death decision regarding their unborn child. We also pray for those who made the wrong choice to abort, that they may find Your enduring grace that brings healing and restoration. In many instances, You have used their troubling experience to be an influencing voice for others to make a right choice. We commit the Pro-Life cause to You this day, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

We thank God for the many elected to office who not only support the Pro-life cause but are trying to enact laws that promote a culture of the preciousness of all life from conception to natural death. This is very encouraging to those of us who are praying for leadership in Washington. There is so much we must pray about in this dark world in which we live, and we must especially pray for our spiritual and political leaders that they will see the light, walk in the light, and spread the light of truth (Matthew 5:16).
