Prayer Challenge for 40 Days

I’m inviting you all to join me in a 40 Day prayer challenge. Each day, for the next 40 days, I’ll be doing short posts to inspire and remind you to pray for specific prayer needs.

Day #1

Pray for abortion to end. There is an average of 3,000 abortions committed each day in the United States, and an average of 125,000 abortions committed each day, world wide.
Pray that the clinic workers’ eyes would be opened and that they would see that what they are doing is wrong.
Pray for the women considering abortion to see that it is an innocent life that they are taking and that they would choose life for their baby.
Praise the Lord that there are no operating clinics in the state of MO! Pray that this would be the case worldwide, starting in our home states.

We believe abortion is wrong because it ends a life, formed and planned by God. It is a life treasured by God and planned before the foundation of the earth.
Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you.”
Isaiah 43:1-2, & 7: “But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.’ Every one who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
(A baby’s heartbeat is detected as early as 5 1/2 weeks after conception.

It is wrong to put an end to God’s little ones.
Exodus 23:7: “Do not kill the innocent and righteous.”
Matthew 19:14: “But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them.’ “

We are formed in God’s image and our bodies are His temple.
Genesis 1:27: So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

1 Corinthians 3:16: “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
