For You From The Word
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God,
who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt.
For You To Think About
Most Americans surveyed will likely get these two quiz questions wrong. How will you do?
Since the 1990s the rate of teen pregnancy in the United States has:
A. declined by about a third
B. stayed about the same
C. increased by a third
The group with the highest number of unplanned pregnancies in the United States is:
A. women in their twenties
C. women in their thirties
According to the Hewlett Foundation and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, both answers are “A.”
The rate of teen pregnancy has dropped by a third. At the same time, the group with the highest number of unplanned pregnancies in the United States today – more than half – is in twenty-something women who have delayed marriage, financial independence, and moving away from home. Now, they face responsibilities and life-and-death choices.
More than ever, they need the support of a nonjudgmental, caring Friend while they make decisions for themselves, their babies, and their futures.
For You To Pray
More than half of those who face an unplanned pregnancy are in their twenties. Help them to make wise choices. Fill them with Your insight and the mind of Christ.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
