10/05/2010- DAY 14            

            In our 40 Days for Life scripture…We often quote this verse found in Psalms 139: “You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret.” God knew all about us even before the pregnancy test turned to a plus sign! He knit us in our mother’s wombs. It was the Lord’s eyes that saw our very own substance being yet unformed; yet in God’s Book, they were all written. God knows the plans He has for all babies, and yet moms and dads think they know better. Not only did God create us, but He created us according to a plan devised from all eternity.

            Today, as we counted and pleaded with the abortion-bound mothers and their accomplices, we tried to convey that God has a plan for their lives and the lives of their innocent unborn babies. Most of these mothers don’t want to hear the truth, but we as ambassadors for Christ and witness bearers must warn them of the terrible fate they are choosing for themselves and their babies. To say that a mother has the right to pick and choose who gets to live and who gets to die is playing God. It is an attack on human life and on God who created us.

            One precious mother turned from this abortuary and confirmed that she listened and chose life this day for her child. She accepted our literature. Praise God!

            “Lord, in my prayers I pray for every unborn child nestled in their mother’s wombs. Let their mothers see the beauty growing inside their wombs. The beauty of their bodies and souls flows from Your hands and Your eternal plan. Awaken in every human conscience profound reverence for human life. Grant us grace to keep defending the smallest and most defenseless among us: our brothers and sisters still being formed in their mother’s wombs. We ask this through Jesus Christ.
