* Welcome God every morning by reading the Living Faith devotional before work (~1 min). Order at http://www.livingfaith.com/.
No one dared to ask [Jesus] any more questions. Mark 12:34
Living Faith snippets: “In moments of honesty, we will all admit to dismissing many of Jesus’ words. The sayings about hating our very selves, or not calling someone a fool, or taking no heed for tomorrow, or letting the dead bury the dead, or lending to those who cannot repay, or resisting not evil…[these sayings] so powerfully assault common sense that we do not entertain them. The gospels…conflict with the conventional understandings and preferred ways of behaving. But if listening to Jesus leads to greater life and love, then the “letting go” will be done in joy.” by John Shea
40 DAYS FOR LIFE (until 16 Mar): This is a unified Christian campaign to prevent the destruction of abortion (babies, families, abortionists) with an around the clock, 40 day prayer vigil at abortion clinics nation-wide. Learn about efforts in your area and sign up for the daily updates at http://www.40daysforlife.com/. “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you” (Jer 1:5)…”you knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Ps 139:13).
* Please share your experiences with defending the unborn (abortion clinic prayer vigils, ministering to abortionists, etc) and helping post-abortion families heal.
Pat’s Nuggets: “I discovered a prolife resource website on the back of a prayer card given to me by Stephanie Kemp at the abortion clinic prayer vigil: www.hli.org/web_resources_links.html#2. This link has a large list of categorized prolife websites. Here is the prayer on the card, “Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.” (www.hli.org/st_michael_prayer.html)
