20 Jan Stop! (1 Sam 15:16) by Dr. Rich Reich
“Samuel said to Saul: ‘Stop! Let me tell you what the Lord said to me last night.’” ~ 1 Sam 15:16 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: When we peacefully pray outside abortion clinics, we serve as a witness for the Lord. In today’s reading, the Lord spoke to Saul through Samuel, telling him to stop disobeying Him. Without Samuel speaking out, Saul would have continued thinking that he was obeying the Lord. Samuel’s presence was critical in delivering God’s message to Saul. Sometimes men listen to other men more than they listen to the Lord. Your peaceful prayers outside the abortion clinic may speak louder than you believe. Your presence communicates to the patients, the escorts, the employees, and the cars driving by that what is happening inside the abortion clinic is not pleasing to God, but is in direct disobedience of the Lord’s will. Do not stop praying outside abortion clinics, but allow your presence to help stop abortions.

Faith Quote: “The product, abortion, is skillfully marketed and sold to the woman at the crisis time in her life. She buys the product, finds it defective and wants to return it for a refund. But, it’s too late.” ~ Carol Everett
