There are many reasons we neglect prayer. There are too many to list. One particularly stubborn reason is discouragement. We pray and wait. We wonder if it works. And too often we move on to something else when things seem hopeless.
I want to encourage you that the abortion situation is not hopeless! God is at work answering our prayers in ways you may not even know! Consider this: I recently read an article (read it here) about Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director. She is now a prolife advocate and has started the organization "And Then There Were None" (ATTWN) to help employees in the abortion industry escape and find healing.
Her organization has been so successful that Planned Parenthood sent an email to all its employees warning them about ATTWN. But this move backfired and Abby Johnson reports they got numerous calls from Planned Parenthood employees in crisis. People that came to see the humanity of the unborn and wanted out. So far they have helped over 200 hundred workers in the abortion industry get out. Many are becoming voices for the prolife cause, giving first hand testimony about what really happens. That is 1 in 16 abortion clinic workers leaving the industry in the last 4 years!
That is an example of God answering prayer!
Why should you pray? Add this to the list of reasons: Because he listens. Our God hears us when we call out to him. We invite you to join us to pray for this issue on February 28th at 7pm to pray for these issues along with many other concerns related to abortion?
