For pro-life organizations, our enemies would be the abortionists at the multiple abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. Our enemies would be the people who donate money to these organizations to help them provide more abortions to women facing an unplanned pregnancy. Typically, we are conditioned to distance ourselves from our enemies and we want to see them fail. While this is true we also understand the need to pray for our enemies because the only way our enemies will change is by the power of Jesus who can change hearts and minds.
We are blessed to be part of the pro-life community that follows the work that we do to help women facing an unplanned pregnancy in their time of need. we are grateful that we can call on you for your prayers for your donations for your support of ICU Mobile as a pro-life organization. We know that when you pray for us you're also praying for the women that we see, you're praying for the babies whose lives can be saved, you're praying for the teams of people on the mobile units, the volunteers, and the administrative teams who make it possible to help women.
Now, we ask that you also pray for the abortionists. Pray that they will encounter the Holy Spirit. Pray they will be moved by something, someone or a situation that will make them see the humanity of the lives that they destroy. Pray that they would completely turn away from what they think they know, pray that they will turn away from the industry that brings them their very livelihood. Pray that they would join the pro-life movement to help educate about the danger of abortion for women, the reality of life that is lost, and the pain of loss at a woman endures when her baby is gone. Pray that they would be moved to bring attention to the abortion industry as a whole and that they would feel empowered to create a new livelihood by saving lives instead of taking them.
Does this seem overwhelming? Does this seem impractical? Does this seem impossible? We understand why you would feel that way. But we also know the truth. The truth of our powerful Savior who has never been overwhelmed and who is capable of doing things that we can only imagine or pray for. When God is for us, who can be against us?
We are asking you to add every abortionist to your prayer list. Pray the big and mighty prayers that only God can answer. Ask him to do the impossible in our eyes because through him anything is possible. When it seems too big or too difficult or too unlikely, take it to God and watch him work.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.” - Matthew 5:43-45
