Next month, hundreds of thousands of people will join the March for Life in Washington, D.C. But what if there were three times that many praying?
(By Eric Metaxas, Breakpoint.) January 22nd is the 43rd anniversary of the worst Supreme Court decision in our nation’s history. With Roe v. Wade, seven robed men gave America some of the most permissive abortion-on-demand laws in the world. Since that time, nearly 60 million unborn children have been killed in the womb.
This month, January, is the month so many American Christians memorialize the unborn—through Sanctity of Life Sunday (this year on January 15) and the March for Life on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on January 27th—I will be there. The day before that, by the way, my colleague John Stonestreet will be speaking at the Anglicans for Life conference, and then after the march at the Evangelicals for Life conference. As you may know, John and I are very passionate about this issue.
Now, if you can get to Washington, please do! But if you can’t, you can still be a part of the most significant cause of our day: the cause for life. How? Well, the Colson Center for Christian Worldview has produced a free, downloadable booklet called: 21 Days of Prayer for Life. It’s updated for 2017, and we want to see millions of Christians appeal together to heaven to end this grave evil.
This full-color booklet was co-written by John Stonestreet and top pro-life apologist Scott Klusendorf, and is co-sponsored by the top pro-life groups in America: Students for Life, Focus on the Family, Save the Storks, the March for Life, Life Training Institute, CareNet, and others.
The booklet will guide you through a three-week journey to pray for all of the victims of abortion: the unborn, expectant mothers and fathers in crisis, siblings, grandparents, and yes, even abortion clinic workers. It also includes prayers for pastors, as well as politicians and policy makers.
