Romans 15:18 (God delivers…contact senators/reps today!)

06 Nov Romans 15:18 (God delivers…contact senators/reps today!)

Let’s welcome God today by reflecting on this short Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which is based on Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

For I will not dare to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me… Romans 15:18 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “I was diagnosed with a rare blood disease. This whole experience was about so much more than words like disease and chemotherapy. It was about faith, hope and healing. It was about living a life of faith even when your back is against the wall. It was about what Christ has accomplished and would continue to accomplish through me. Lord, help me meet the difficulties in my life with the strength and grace that comes from you alone.” Steve Givens

Pat’s nuggets: see urgent Faith Challenge below
* While searching in the Combined Federal Campaign catalog for a ProLife charity, I noticed this approved charity: “Abortion Access Project: seeking to create and support innovative responses to gaps in abortion access.” This life/death struggle is a real spiritual battle. “When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.” Luke 1:41

Sr. Francelle’s devotion: Jealousy, the Green-eyed Monster‏

Faith Challenges: Let’s all invite one person each week (John 14:6) to join our LIFE Group (~250 of God’s children).
* NEW: As the LIFE Group, we encourage each other to have authentic Christian lives that include defending the voiceless/innocent unborn. Let’s never stop working to bring victory over the greatest injustice of our time (abortion). Tomorrow, Congress will likely vote on the health care reform bill, and millions of children’s lives are at stake with this largest public funding of abortion since Roe vs. Wade. Please call (guidance) and email (already setup) your representative & senators today…beg them to not support this unjust health care reform bill that will kill children and injure parents. See first Faith Quote below.

Counter-Culture News: LifeSiteNews, American Family Association, Priests for Life
* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s courageously share ProLife Truth to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!
* NEW: ‘Planned Parenthood Pushes Abortion for Profit’: Ex-Abortion Facility Director Says, “They really wanted to increase the number of abortions so that they could increase their income.”
* NEW: On our Facebook LIFE Group page, Steve posted three short videos that shed Truth on the health care reform bill (Congress likely votes tomorrow).

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas in footnote below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, natural disasters, refugees, addictions, persecuted believers, Peters family (JP in hospital), Lynn Bishara (for son Alex), Joe Hourigan (for brother Mike), Doug Young (special intention), Beth O’Connor (father in law passed away Tues)
* NEW: victims/families in the Ft. Hood shooting, health care reform bill

Faith Quotes:
* “To live without faith, without a patrimony to defend, without a steady struggle for truth, that is not living, but existing.” Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
* “Live as though heaven is on earth!”

Through Christ for ProLife,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, pornography, bitterness, criticalness, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ (Blessed Mother Teresa).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead a friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service (Matt 28:19).
