Let us be a Voice...Let us Pray!

Check out this Site. It is very sobering to consider the amount of deaths due to Abortion since 1973: 48 Million!!
Carolyn McCulley wrote an interesting article of this horrible epidemic that has spread, costing the lifes of unborn children! We must be a voice and light in this dark world...
and pray that this would come to an end! We trust that God hears our prayers and is faithful
to care for His people! Read the article and consider what ways you can be a part of of being a voice for those who don't have a voice! I'm challenged with how much I don't pray for this matter and others alike!
Christ is the only answer to this utter rebellion!
He has come to bring Light into this darkened world of destruction! May we cling to Him and find confidence to pray boldly for the unborn children!!
Therefore, we have Hope...our gracious God has the Final Word and Victory over sin and rebellion! Praise Him for this truth! And Let us Pray!

Psalm 8

"O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth, who hast displayed thy splendor above the heavens!
From the mouth of infants and nursing babes thou hast established strength, because of thine adversaries, to make the enemy and the revengeful cease.
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou dost take thought of him?
And the son of man, that thou dost care for him? Yet thou hast made him a little lower than God, and dost crown him with glory and majesty!
Thou dost make him to rule over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth! "

A Prayer.

"O My Savior,
help me.
I am so slow to learn, so prone to forget, so weak to climb;
I am in the foothilll when I should be on the heights;
I am pained by my graceless heart,
my prayerless days,
my poverty of love,
my sloth in the heavely race,
my sullied conscience,
my wasted hours,
my unspent opportunities.
I am blind while light shines around me;
take the scales from my eyes,
grind to dust the evil heart of unbelief.
Make it my chiefest joy to study thee,
mediate on thee,
gaze on thee,
sit like Mary at thy feet,
lean like John on thy breast,
appeal like Peter to thy love,
count like Paul all things dung.
Give me increase and progress in grace so that there may be
more decision in my character,
more vigour in my purposes,
more elevation in my life,
more fervor in my devotion,
more constancy in my zeal.
As I have a position in the world,
keep me from making the world my position;
May I never seek in the creature
what can be found only in the Creator;
Let not faith cease from seeking thee until it vanishes into sight.
Ride forth in me, thou king of kings and lord of lords,
that I may live victoriously, and in victory attain my end."
