"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found" (Psalm 32:6)
GOD'S CHALLENGE FOR 2003
The Abortion Holocaust Must Come to an End!
The LORD sent... raiders... to destroy Judah... because of the sins of Manasseh... including the shedding of innocent blood... the LORD was not willing to forgive (2 Kgs 24:2-4).
Your hands are full of blood; wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes... If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land: but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword... (Is 1:15-20).
America sees terrorism, Iraq and a flagging economy as the challenges of 2003. But our trials, including the rise of our enemies, are the result of God's curses about which we have been forewarned (see Dt 28: all).
·January 22, 2003, is the 30th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the High Court decision that forced all 50 states to legalize abortion. Despite our political liberties, America's churches simply did not and have not done what only they could have to end the staggering abortion orgy.
·Repentance might bring God's reprieve and His outpouring of grace upon the Church and our country. But most Christians still do not understood the connection between abortion and our troubles. Only a few pastors have taught, led and spent the time, energy and money necessary to hasten the end of the abortion holocaust.
·Again this year, thousands of pro-life marchers will come to Washington on January 22 to decry Roe v. Wade and to memorialize the slaughter of 50 million infants since 1973.
·Last year President Bush told marchers he would support a human cloning ban, teen abstinence programs, crisis pregnancy centers, and parental notification laws. He declared his opposition to public funding of abortion and to partial-birth abortion.
·Yet it was Bush operatives who helped to kill Senator Sam Brownback's (R-KS) bill to ban human cloning. Despite the President's televised pledge to limit embryo research funding to "existing lines" the NIH has granted funding for research on other human embryos between 2 and 8 weeks old.
·Even the Justice Department has continued Janet Reno's policies by bringing injunctions against certain activists and by hindering peaceful pro-life events.
·Pro-life activists agree that with a pro-life President and Republican-controlled Congress the opportunity to advance pro-life legislation should have improved. Yet many fear that neither President Bush nor the American Church will provide the leadership needed to stay the Lord's hand of judgment against the nation for the shedding of innocent blood.
Please Join Us in Faith-filled Prayer:
--May the Church AWAKEN & REPENT THIS YEAR!
--May God REVIVE & MULTIPLY Churches across America that will Act to end abortion THIS YEAR.
--May GOD raise up Christian Churchmen & Statesmen with His anointing & authority to STOP the abortion holocaust in our land.
--May President Bush exercise leadership to preserve the Lives
of the Unborn as boldly as he has to save the economy &
to deal with terrorism. In Jesus' Name, Amen (Pr 24:10-12; Mt
17:20-21; Mk 9:23; Lk 18:2-8; Eph 5:14-161 Th 5:24; Heb 11:32-34).
