Educate Yourself and Choose Life!
The Democratic Party platform says, “The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.” The Republican Party platform says, “Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”
“Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward.” (Psalm 127:3; NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Too many pastors will not teach on issues that people are voting on when they go to the polls. Some are afraid to offend some of their congregants. Sometimes we have to offend the flesh to line ourselves up with the Word of God. Educate yourself by reading your Bible to see what it says on party platform issues, which you can learn about by clicking here and here.
Pray for the Church to understand how important “life” is to God.
Ask the Lord to end abortion in this nation.
Pray for God to raise up those who will adopt babies, if Roe v Wade is reversed.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, help me to educate myself on political issues, so that I will know how to vote. Don’t let me depend on waiting for pastors to teach me. Holy Spirit, teach me as I read Your Word and go to the party platforms and actually read them for myself. I ask You, Father, to help me and the Church understand just how important life is to You. I also ask You to end abortion in America, Lord. I pray there would be a statement made in the Church that we want the unborn! Let us say that we will take another little life around our tables. Raise up an adoption movement to replace abortion. We choose LIFE, Jesus! Amen.
The Lord will teach us how to educate ourselves on governmental issues and vote accordingly, so that our nation will begin to line up with His Word and Will.
