Today I am begging for God's forgivness for my sin of looking the other way these past few years regarding abortion. I have supported the pro-life movement by working for Birthright many years ago, and giving financially to local prolife centers. What else can I do? With statistics telling us that in 2008, 1.2 million abortions were performed, that the national abortion rate is 22% and 2 out of 10 pregnancies end in abortion, what can little ole me do?
I am committed to praying consistently this year for this brutality against the unborn.I am asking forgiveness from my heavenly Father for believing that it is the role of the government to end abortion. Although I believe it should become illegal to have an abortion I am no longer trusting in the "powers that be".
Tomorrow, 1-23, is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. I want to do more than just recognize this day, but remember everyday that there are
"...those who are being taken away to death that need to be rescued, and those who are stumbling to the slaughter that need to be held back."
