Abortion can be stopped

            II Chronicles 7:14 “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

            Angela began with a short introduction and then spoke to the group about how to overcome abortion. This was mostly a women’s retreat and prayer conference with daily workshops.

            “Who is most responsible for abortion in our nation today? You and me.” Angela gave the scripture Proverb 24:11-12 and said, “We are rescuers!” She then gave a couple of analogies.    “Being the mother of a large family, my worst fear is of our house to catch fire in the middle of the night. Would I be able to get all of our children out safely?”

            “Can you imagine that you are sleeping and in the middle of the night you hear voices crying, ‘Help me!’ You look out your window and you see your neighbor’s house on fire. Flames are shooting out the window and you hear tiny voices pleading, ‘Help me! Please save me!’ What do you do? Do you stand by and say, ‘Well, the house is on fire, kids are burning, but I’ll pray for you.’ Or, ‘I’ll put an extra $10 in the offering for you.

            “You’re out in the backyard trimming your rosebushes and you hear a splash. Next thing you hear is someone screaming, ‘My child fell into the pool! I can’t swim. Someone help me, my baby is drowning!’ What do you do? Do you hand them a package of diapers? Do you say, ‘Well, I’ll pray for you,’? Do you tell the mother, ‘We’ll have a bible study for you,’ or ‘We’ll form a committee and get back to you’?

            “No, you would run towards that burning house, break down the door, and get the kids out! You would jump over the fence and into the pool and save that child’s life! That is what a rescuer does.”

            How one perceives the battle is how one will fight it. Education: It isn’t about education.  Education cannot free us from sin. Economy: It isn’t about finances. Economics cannot buy us out of sin. Politics: It isn’t about politics. Politics cannot free us from sin. Compassion: It isn’t about compassion. Compassion cannot love us out of sin. The Gospel: If you perceive abortion to be a Gospel issue than you begin by calling out the Church of Jesus Christ to repent. Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end and not one second sooner.

            Angela invited them to come to the abortion mill and stand in the gap for the babies. “You don’t have to hold a sign or do anything, just make yourself available so God can use you. Just your presence may touch a mother’s heart and save a life.” She gave many statistics and information about abortion and explained our vital ministry in front of Hope Clinic with our ultrasound van outreach to abortion-minded mothers. Over 90% of women walking inside a pregnancy center are keeping their babies, “But every mother walking inside an abortion mill is there to kill.” Hearts were touched when she shared baby Hannah’s testimony of being saved from this notorious mill and how God worked miracles throughout Hannah’s adoption.

            The group asked Angela questions and it was a good discussion. The group brought up the fact that our youth are so violent and angry. Angela said, “When you kill the most innocent and defenseless in society, it cheapens life. When we allow mothers to put a price tag on life, no one is safe. When a mother can kill her own child, how can we expect others not to kill? Look at the many recent school shootings.” The others agreed. One woman broke down crying and the others gathered around her and prayed. “When you sow bloodshed in the womb, you will reap it in the street and this is just the tip of the iceberg.”

            We gathered for a closing prayer, exchanged contact information, and directed the participants to the Small Victories literature and information table.

            The group appreciated the talk and this frontlines ministry. They promised to keep in mind prayer time for the workers in the field, especially high killing times daily, and you could tell that hearts were touched. Thank you Lord for this awesome opportunity to sow good seed.

            Courage is not the lack of fear but the courage to go out and fight in spite of your fear.
