Genesis 2:7 (LIFE Sidewalkers) by Joe Hourigan

09 Feb Genesis 2:7 (LIFE Sidewalkers) by Joe Hourigan

Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (website, Facebook).
“…the LORD God formed man out of the clay of the ground and blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and so man became a living being.” Gen 2:7 (full readings)
Joe’s Reflections: Today’s verse further shows the reality that God breathed life into us…and counts every conceived baby as one of His children. Knowing that abortion attacks this sanctity of life has given me singleness of purpose to prayerfully stand up for God’s littlest ones every Friday afternoon on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood’s abortion mill. I have never felt so humbled as when I pray there. My moral courage is increasing. I have responded to the Holy Spirit’s prompting and have spoken to more and more people about committing to specific prayer times on the sidewalk. We have faith that Our Lord is using these prayers in a big way (Luke 18:1-8)! With all that God has been laying His hands upon lately — Blood Money and Maafa21 movies, news about Planned Parenthood’s institutional deceit/evil, the great number of young people who joined the March for Life, etc. — the momentum is surely swaying to the culture for Life side. But still, much work remains. God is giving those who are seeking to do His will, the moral courage to stand up and be a voice for those without one. Also, to be a voice for the women and other family members who are too hurt to speak up about the damage caused by abortion. With the dedication and commitment of ProLife leaders, we are thinking globally and acting locally. Like Matthew Kelly says in his book Rediscovering Catholicism, we need people that are not just willing to die for the cause, but to live for it. I would give my life this very moment to once and for all end abortion, if possible. Instead, I pray for the courage to continue spreading the message of life giving love, and let God do whatever He chooses with my devotions. I am now commissioned to share it…I beg you to join your local LIFE Sidewalkers…for His precious Unborn!
* Joe Hourigan resides in Colorado Springs and is married to Anne. They have six wonderful children. Joe’s authentic life in the Spirit has encouraged him to serve as a ProLife ‘sidewalk counselor’, praying every Friday afternoon in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion mill.
Faith Challenge: Please consider praying every week outside your local Planned Parenthood abortion mill, until the lawful killing of innocent children ends. This is like praying at the foot of the cross…expect to be blessed and converted closer to the heart of Christ.
Our Prayers: Prayer to end abortion, Alpha Center, Peters family (JP). Add Prayers on our website. Pray with meals, bedtime, wake up, running, etc. Consider mid-week Family Rosary (17 min). Let’s pray now.
Faith Quote: “Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly.” ~ St. Ignatius Loyola
Through Christ our Lord,
* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (23% pregnancies). Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa
* Evangelize:Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Matt 28:19.
