February Prayer & Praises
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
1 John 4:7-8
Why Be Gracious? Because of the immeasurable grace we have each received. When we recognize the grace and mercy that has been poured out on our lives through Jesus’ finished work on the cross, we are able to extend grace and kindness to others. His sacrifice was perfect in every way and able to present us blameless before a Holy and perfect God.
It seems unfathomable to know that God sees us with all of our sin and shame, and yet He still loves us and forgives us. Thanks be to God!
Let us encourage one another to be gracious to mothers who are trying to make the right choice for their babies. They need our compassion and for us to share the love of Christ with them by demonstrating it through our actions, prayers, and resources.
Please pray for them and everyone who interacts with them through the clinic, that the mothers would be well cared for and given the necessary tools and encouragement to protect the sanctity of their baby’s life.
"...and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." - Ephesians 5:2
Prayer for health & strength for the Care Net staff as they continue to serve more women than ever in this ministry’s history.
“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” – 3 John 1:2
Pray that more women than ever before will choose life for their unborn children and find salvation through Jesus Christ by visiting our center.
“Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart, one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” – Romans 10:9-10
Pray for healing for woman who have walked the path of abortion as we begin a new post-abortion support group this month.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
You believe in life. It’s sacred. It’s undeniably alive. So you protect it. You speak up, you give money to Care Net Peninsula, and you pray that pregnant women won’t default to abortion. And that is what happens – women do choose life.
Too often in our culture, narratives don’t reflect reality. This is true on both sides of the political aisle and within all our different subcultures. Sometimes the lies don’t matter much – “Wow, Santa came and ate all those cookies! — Definitely NOT Dad!!” Other times, lives are at stake. If I’ve learned anything in my time at Care Net, it’s that the abortion industry lies, and then lies about lying.
