This will be a short and simple post, but its message could change our country.
I came back from my sabbatical last summer committed to make a basic change in how I functioned.
I committed to stop saying I was pro-life and to start acting like it.
I led our church to start giving money to non-profits who are fighting abortion in the legal and legislative arenas (we already support pregnancy and adoption centers).
I started praying for the reversal of Roe v Wade.
And, I started praying for Planned Parenthood. I’m writing to ask, if you haven’t already, if you would add these four items to your prayer list.
Pray that Planned Parenthood will lose its clients.
I’m praying that churches and non-profits will be so effective at what they do that potential clients will stop walking into the doors of Planned Parenthood. I’m praying that the men and women who often seek out abortion services will have strategically-placed believers in their lives who can guide them to better options that are available to them.
Because if Planned Parenthood loses its client base, it will go out of business. Will you pray this with me?
Pray that Planned Parenthood will lose its workers.
I pray for the doctors, nurses and staff of Planned Parenthood. I’m praying they will see the error of their ways and immediately abandon all ties with Planned Parenthood. If you haven’t done so, you need to familiarize yourself with Abbey Johnson. Abbey is a former Planned Parenthood director who is now a vocal leader in the pro-life movement. Abbey’s story is as gut wrenching as it is inspiring.
If God can rescue Abbey from Planned Parenthood’s lies, he can rescue the rest of those who work there as well. Will you pray for their deliverance with me?
Pray that Planned Parenthood will lose its funding.
When the abortion industry is exposed for what it really is, only those truly committed to doing evil will continue to fund it. When the abortion industry is exposed for what it really is, the political and social pressure will be too great for most organizations to continue to affiliate with Planned Parenthood.
Thus, I pray that the real work and agenda of Planned Parenthood will be revealed and that it will lose all major funding. When the money dries up, so will the “services.” Will you pray this with me?
Finally, pray that the National Director of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, will fall madly in love with Jesus.
Cecile Richards is the daughter of former Texas Governor Ann Richards. My father knew Gov. Richards quite well. There was a point in her adult life when Gov. Richards would have described herself as a Christian and attended the Methodist church.
Cecile attended a private Episcopal school here in Austin. My point is that Ms. Richards is not ignorant of the Gospel. I am praying that it ambushes her. I am praying that she comes to personally know the love and grace that only Jesus can offer. I ‘m praying that God frees her from the lies she has fallen prey to.
I am praying that she fall passionately in love with Jesus.
Will you pray these things with me?
