“I have certainly seen the oppression of my people (in Egypt) and have heard their groans, and I have come down to rescue them.” Acts 7:34
This Scripture is taken from the moment God speaks to Moses from a
burning bush and tells him that, after 40 long years of wandering in the
desert, the time had come for salvation. This is our prayer today! This
coming January 2013 will mark 40 years of our once great country
“wandering in the desert” of abortion on-demand. For 40 years we have seen the
morals of our land slide into secularism. We have seen such a devaluing of
human life that euthanasia, infanticide, and abortion are seen as someone’s
“choice” and “right.” BUT… we can look to the Bible and know that just as our
God heard the “groans” of the Jews, He hears the our prayers too! And He WILL
come down to rescue us! Let this be the year that we stand united for LIFE and
only vote for those who hold LIFE sacred!
40 Days for Life continues!
352 babies saved so far!! - Downers Grove is hosting a 12 hour daily vigil from 6:00 am – 6:00 pm. You can sign up for an hour athttp://40daysforlife.com/downersgrove/ . There is also a Chicago location. If you can’t make it out to a vigil, commit to praying for an hour from where ever you are at a time when abortions are being committed. Don’t forget to keep fasting and reaching out to others to invite them to pray for an end to abortion.
News from the last two Thursdays’ Forest View vigils:
** On Thursday, March 8, we estimate NINE women made the “choice” to kill the unborn child in their womb.
** One was a particularly tragic story. A middle-aged man dressed in a handsome shirt and tie tried to avoid us but finally talked to me on his way out of the lot… after he dropped
off his wife at the clinic. He explained that their baby has Down Syndrome and
a tumor that doctors say will continue to grow until his wife miscarries. I
tried to speak words of encouragement to put this in God’s hands rather than
take the life of his unborn child into his own, but I was unable to convince
him. I recently read that an estimated 90% of babies diagnosed prenatally with
Down Syndrome will be aborted. We must be a voice for these children of God.
Please pray for eyes to be opened to the gift of LIFE.
** You can read an uplifting story of a woman whose unborn child was given a similarly grim diagnosis,but she chose to let God be in charge at: http://www.physiciansforlife.org/content/view/2211/26/
. It’s titled “Miracle Joey: The boy who refused to die.”
** On Thursday, March 15, we estimate NINE innocents were killed at the hands of a “doctor.”
** We are seeing many more people with Wisconsin plates coming to Forest View now that the Rockford abortion mill is closed. We need more prayer warriors! If you have ever sidewalk counseled before, we could especially use your support for the early hours 7:00 am – 9:00 am when most of the women arrive.
News about your spiritually adopted baby:
** At 16 weeks, your spiritually adopted baby weighs about 5
ounces and is almost as long as a ballpoint pen. His ears are beginning to
function and he can detect sound. Let us pray that those little ears will
someday hear the sound of his family’s laughter and love. To spiritually adopt a baby, pick up a prayer card in the vigil kit or go online at www.spiritualadoption.org.
