For You From The Word

Let love and faithfulness never leave you …then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:3-4, NIV)

For You To Think About

Pro-life trends: newborn baby in basketA  report from the Guttmacher Institute reveals changes in America’s attitude towards life.

Public opinion has changed. In a 1996 Gallup poll, more than half of Americans self-identified as pro-choice, compared to 33% who claimed to be pro-life. By 2013, 48% of Americans identified themselves as pro-life, compared with 45% pro-choicers.

Laws have changed. State legislatures enacted 205 abortion restrictions from 2011 to 2013, contrasted with the 189 provisions enacted during the entire previous decade.

Leaders have changed. Recent elections brought changes to state legislatures by increasing the presence of pro-life lawmakers, particularly in southern states that have been historically dominated by those more hostile to abortion.

The data shows that in a faithful pursuit in the battle for life, life is winning.

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,
Thank You for moving to change public attitude to be more in favor of life. Continue to transform hearts. Lead our legislators to make decisions that honor Your hand as the Author of life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
