January is a month of memory in the pro-life community. It can feel monumentally heavy as we remember how many years abortion has now been legalized in America. However, it is a month dedicated to the Sanctity of Human Life; the sacredness of God’s creation. It points to His holiness and kindness in making something so precious. It encourages hope and praise.
So just as we remember the past with aching hearts for all those who have lost life and lost their children, we also remember Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and our Father, thanking Him for LIFE. We are made free through His OWN sacrifice of life, so let our prayers this month beg for others to be led from death to life while rejoicing in the beauty of EVERY life gained for His Kingdom. Because of faithful prayers and support, there are many chubby little faces here today. Parents have healing hearts and souls saved eternally in our counseling rooms. That is worth remembering!
Let us remember the pain of the past, remember the joy of lives saved for today, and remember the hope of our God making all things new.
Pray that churches in our community will raise awareness during Sanctity of Human Life month and will take action to partner with this mission.
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” – Matthew 9:36-38
Pray that the Lord would raise up mentors to help women facing an unexpected pregnancy and help them get involved in a local church.
“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” – Ephesians 4:15-16
Pray that we will be equipped to reach even more mothers and fathers in 2021.
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30
