Pray and Fight for Life

Posted by Paul D. Johnson on

It was a frustrating weekend for those that stand for life. All around the world millions of women marched, and when it comes to equality I am right there with them. But that's not what it became. It became target practice aimed at anyone that holds to a biblical work view on abortion, and it was ugly. Celebs used their bully pulpit to profane the President and all those that don't fit into their box. 

And then, as of course was God-ordained, yesterday was Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. We prayed. We grieved. We wonder: How could our nation have allowed some fifty-sixty million children to be murdered since Roe v. Wade? How?

Dr. Russel Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention writes:

I hate Sanctity of Human Life Sunday because I’m reminded that we have to say things to one another that human beings shouldn’t have to say. Mothers shouldn’t kill their children. Fathers shouldn’t abandon their babies. No human life is worthless, regardless of skin color, age, disability, economic status. The very fact that these things must be proclaimed is a reminder of the horrors of this present darkness.

So, pray. Pray like you've never prayed before. Our children are dying. They are made in God's image (Gen. 1:26). They are God's special creation (Ps. 139). They need us to keep fighting! And with God’s help we will win.
