"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Today marks a sad day in history.

On this, the 35th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, I ask for those of you that pray to please lift up all of those unborn babies and the mother's that are carrying them. By 8 weeks in utero, not only do these tiny gifts have a beating heart, but they have a brain, arms, legs, knee joints, eyelids and even fingernails are forming.

I know that each of us that have adopted, are especially grateful that our children's birth mother's decided to give them a chance at life.


Most Mericful and Loving Father,

On this, the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision, a decision made by man, we plead that you please protect all those who are standing firm in their beliefs that every child has a right to life beginning at conception. Keep this a peaceful march but forceful with its message. Please equip each of the marchers with the armor of God and that any adversity may be thwarted and converted to an understanding of respect life.

Most of all, Lord Jesus, bring an end to the killing of all unborn babies. May their mothers be protected and filled with the knowledge that they are bearing an amazing gift from You. We also pray that our politicians, especially those currently running for office, will be inspired by all participating in this march and taking a stand. May they examine their consciences on this issue.

We thank you Lord for our beautiful children and pray fervently for blessings upon their birth mothers for having said "Yes" and having respected that these are Your precious children that were given to us as gifts.

In Your blessed name we pray.

Amen.

Father God I pray in agreement with Ohilda, Keep your hand of protection over the unborn and over their mamas. Hide each one under the shadow of your wings. Thank you Father for our babies and for your watchcare over them from the moment of conception. Amen!

Blessings Ohilda!
