Tuesday, March 15th- "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases." Psalms 103:3
With barely a voice, we ventured to the City of Slaughter in Granite City, Illinois. The weather couldn't be more depressing as it was damp, cold, and very dreary. Midnight abortions were underway. We quickly set up and met fellow prayer warriors. We began in prayer and read from the 40 Days for Life devotional, and then stood strategically. Counselors tried softly speaking to the abortion-minded mothers standing in line. They came from Indiana, Kentucky, Texas, Iowa, mostly Missouri, and a few from Illinois. It was cold; we kept moving to stay warm.
We kept praying. BAM! Another couple from Edwardsville, Illinois we spoke to earlier came back out. The girl was beautiful with long blond hair. The young man confirmed they kept their baby as they pulled out to Judy, who was thrilled at this point.
"Father, we come to You rejoicing with the precious babies that were spared today, the hearts that were touched, and the lives that will be changed. Lord, we pray for the abortionist, for those that would do harm to our innocent children, and for all those involved in this abortion facility. Prick their conscience and trouble their souls regarding their works of iniquity so that they would seek the truth. It breaks God's heart to see the abortionists and abortion workers in bondage to sin. He is giving them an invitation to meet a Savior and serve a real KING who can set the captives free. You desire that we bring them the message of truth and hope found in Christ. We pray for those in the abortion industry that You would trouble their souls so much that they would cry out in hunger for the truth and freedom that their redemption in You can bring. In Jesus’ name we pray.” ~Angela
