40 Days for Life
Something is desperately wrong in America…
In a nation that was founded on an unalienable right to life, endowed by
our Creator, more than 1,200,000 innocent children are killed by abortion
each year. In 2008, the death toll from abortion surpassed 50 million.
Millions of women have been wounded by abortion – some physically,
and many more emotionally and spiritually. Fathers who have lost children
to abortion have been shoved to the sidelines, abandoned to lives of
Recent election cycles have placed more abortion advocates in the highest
offices in our land, and Barack Obama has promised to make the
abortion agenda a top priority in his administration. Millions more innocent
lives could be lost to abortion in the next few years – unless
something drastic changes now.
Who can't care about life? It's our most precious gift from our Heavenly Father. I stumbled across an extremely worthy cause in which thousands of people all across the country are actively participating this very moment. The name of the organization is 40 Days for Life, and you can be involved in any number of ways without ever touching your checkbook or stash of credit cards.
If you're a praying person you can help. If you're willing to fast, you can ramp up the effectiveness of this fight even more.
We're in the midst of a very real spiritual war and what better way to re-arm and put on the full body armor of Christ than by getting involved in a fight so important to God the Father and Jesus Christ our brother, not to mention all of mankind. It's a winner take all caged fight of a lifetime that is and will have a lasting effect on all of us. Don't be on the wrong side of this momentous fight. Get involved!
Thomas Jefferson gave this scary wake-up call more than 200 years ago:
And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.
