10 Feb Be Fruitful and Multiply (Gen 1:20) by Kathy Forck
“God said, ‘Let the water teem with an abundance of living creatures, and on the earth let birds fly beneath the dome of the sky.'” ~ Gen 1:20 (full readings)
Kathy’s Reflections: God has blessed us and told us to be fruitful and multiply. The innocent life lost each day is over 3000 babies. Each one knit in the womb by our Heavenly Father. How have we gotten to this point in America that the innocent life is no longer treasured and valued? What can we do to change this culture of death to a culture of life? It is up to each of us to pray for justice and for life for the babies and to pray for the mothers who feel they have no choice. We can pray for men to be strong and protective of the child they have been gifted with. We can pray for parents to be supportive. WE must all do our part to honor God’s words, “Be fruitful and multiply” by being involved each day in prolife activities with prayer, fasting, praying in front of an abortion clinic, helping at a Pregnancy Help Center and to always be a beacon of life to those suffering with and from the choice to abort their child.
* Kathy and Mike Forck are the parents of four children and are blessed with seven grandchildren. They are co-campaign managers of the Columbia 49 Days for Life. When they started in 2009, Columbia Planned Parenthood was aborting 800 babies each year. In the first three years of prayer witness, Columbia PP lost 7 abortionists and lost their license to do abortions. It has been 2 and 1/2 years since a baby was killed there. 40 Days has a prayer presence every day at this “downgraded” abortion referral center. With God all things are possible!.
Faith Challenge: What will you do today and every day to further the cause for Life? Make it a priority each day to do something, no matter how small to promote Life, God’s greatest gift to us.

Faith Quote: “I am like a growing olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the mercy of God, for ever and ever.” ~ Psalm 52: 10. How wonderful a gift that we can always trust in the mercy of God as we do His will to be a beacon of light to those suffering in this world. No matter what happens, we have this unshakable faith that our God is with us and He is in charge of all that happens to us. Holy Spirit, fill us with your wisdom and light. Let us always remember the unborn.
