Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Prayer and Fasting for Obama on the Roe v Wade Anniversary

Today is the 36th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, legalizing abortion nationwide. In regards to his support of "abortion rights" President Obama has been quoted as saying, "On this fundamental issue, I will not yield." The President's pro-"abortion rights" supporters will certainly be expecting him to make an executive decision in their favor to mark the anniversary of Roe v Wade, perhaps by overturning the Mexico City Policy.

During his inauguration address, President Obama gave several examples of heroism expressed through the lives of ordinary Americans; among such acts of heroism, he mentioned, "a parent’s willingness to nurture a child." I pray that President Obama's heart would be changed concerning the issue of abortion and that he would be willing to display a heroism consistent with the best sentiments expressed in his speeches; I pray that he would be willing to disappoint his constituents and to admit the fallacy of his former pro-"abortion rights" position. I pray that he would not overturn the Mexico City Policy today, nor would he use this day to in any way support legalized child murder with his executive authority.

I ask my brothers and sisters in Christ to join with me in fasting and prayer today for God's mercy in protecting the lives of the unborn from unjust executive policies.
