This will be brief, but not because the topic is unimportant. In fact it is hard to imagine anything more important than a request that we pray for a young woman who is scheduled to have an abortion in the next 24 hours.
Over the years National Right to Life has received hundreds of requests for intercessory prayer. Those that have come directly to me, well in most cases I never learn what happens to the mother and the baby. Occasionally I will receive a celebratory follow up, most times nothing.
But not for a moment would that stop me, or countless other pro-lifers, from taking time to quietly lift that mother and that baby up in prayer. And as I have gotten older, I have come to the realization that it very important to add the baby’s father. So often it is his lack of support that convinces the girl she has no alternative but to abort. Should his heart be softened…
If you have a prayer life, or even if you don’t, take a few minutes each day and lift up those thousands of children whose existence tetters on the knife-edge between life and death.
