40 babies saved, 2 conversions, 1
There will come a day with no more tears. Revelation 21:4-5 “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Today as we reflect on the past 40 Days of prayer, vigil, and fasting we celebrate the lives that were saved from abortion, the hearts that were touched, and the conversions and salvations of many.
We are so grateful to those who were faithful and obedient to help us in
our cause for the child in the womb. Every activity we undertook in defense of
the sacredness of life was prophetic in as much as it points to a day when “death
will be no more.” With every baby saved, there is hope that even death
itself will be conquered. There were some days when we wept over the
premeditated deaths of many babies being led to their slaughter outside this
abortion mill. Sometimes when we fight it in our flesh we feel helpless, but be
encouraged! With the Lord fighting for us, we win.
When we weep we are to think of a day when every tear will be wiped away.
“The gates of hell cannot prevail
For the past 17 years our ministry has been storming these very same gates where little boys and girls are being ripped apart in their mothers’ wombs daily. An old football analogy says: “The best defense is a good offense.” Heard of that? Every time we show up on the sidewalk surrounding the gates, we are running right smack into the giant just like little David did in the story of Goliath. He didn’t wait to be invited. Little David did battle with something so big the odds didn’t look very good. Just like with the abortion mill, it appears to be bigger than we can imagine. However, with every baby saved, with every falsehood or lie exposed, the gates of sin will melt in the presence of grace. The gates of death will fall in the presence of the Church.
Throughout these 40 Days we have pushed forward the boundaries of the Kingdom. We cannot turn back! We must keep going forward to rebuild a Culture of Life. We can and must continue to keep our voices heard where injustice and oppression exist. We can bring the giant down!
“Father, we praise You. We have
heard the voice of Your Son, and therefore we can make our voices heard. We have
done battle with the power of evil, and therefore can have compassion on those
still within its grip. May the witness of Your people through the 40 Days for
Life bear abundant fruit, and may we begin again each day even after this Spring
campaign ends to continue to keep storming the gates of hell until You welcome
us into the gates of heaven. We pray for more victories in the victorious name
of Jesus Christ. Thank You, Lord, that throughout these past 40 Days for Life we
witnessed approximately 40 babies saved from abortion, 2 employee conversions, 1
salvation, and 1 Black American baby is up for adoption. Thank you Jesus!”
