40 Days for Life... or 40 Days of Prayer?

This was emailed to me from 40 Days For Life, a pro-life organization.  When I read the contents, I was shocked. Read for yourself to find out why. To see the video, click here.

The media is buzzing with coverage about 40 Days for
Life after it was discovered that a Planned Parenthood
affiliate is now conducting its own knock-off 40-day
prayer campaign ...

... but instead of praying for life, Planned Parenthood
calls for 40 days of prayer ... for ABORTION.

Some say that imitation is the sincerest form of
flattery, but we're not flattered when America's largest
abortion chain "prays" for the destruction of innocent
children -- while raking in over $487 MILLION in tax
dollars each year to fund its deadly operation.

Here are just a few of Planned Parenthood's "prayer

 * Day 18: "Today we pray for all the staff at abortion
  clinics around the nation. May they be daily
  confirmed in the sacred care that they offer women."

 * Day 28: "Today we pray for the women who travel
  hundreds of miles to get an abortion. May their
  determination be rewarded with spiritual strength."

 * Day 34: "Today we give thanks for abortion escorts
  who guide women safely through the hostile gauntlets
  of protesters."

TODAY is Day 40 of Planned Parenthood's campaign.

Here's what they want abortion advocates to "pray" for:

 * "Today we give thanks and celebrate that abortion is
   still safe and legal."

Appalling ... but there is a silver lining.

While Planned Parenthood might have intended this as
a campaign to mock you -- and all people of faith who
recognize the God-given dignity of every human life --
it has backfired, giving 40 Days for Life a massive
publicity boost in more than 400 media outlets over
the last few days.

Thought I'd share a picture of Texas!

I Need A Savior

Oh, how we need a Savior! How thankful am I that my God sent His Son to die for me! 
 Thank you, Lord!  

While the rain was pattering against the window panes, a truth was pattering against my heart.  I need a Savior.  While I sit and think over the day and little things I did, I realize: I need a Savior.  Dear Lord Jesus, come inside of me and fill me with Your Spirit! It is only with His Spirit that we can overcome sin. And even then, it's not us that overcome it.  It's Him.  It's all Him.  Why haven't I realized that I need to tell my Flesh to shut up and sit down, and to humbly bow before my King and say, "Oh Lord, take my life and let it be wholly consecrated to thee"?  I've heard my parents tell me. I've heard my pastors tell me.  I've heard it before.  Why haven't I listened?  I can talk and I can blog about this stuff all day long, but it profits me nothing if I don't live it.  So why don't I live it?  Because it hurts my Flesh.  It doesn't coddle it.
I just wanna yell at myself for all the wrong and sin in my life.  Why did I do that?  I want to kick myself at times, especially as I catch myself... but usually I catch myself after I do whatever it was.  Why is this so hard?  Maybe it's pride.  That's a big thing alright.  Pride usually holds me back from humbling myself in my Jesus' sight.  And I can't believe I'm typing this, knowing that you'll read it and see my weakness.  Of course you know I'm not perfect, but I wouldn't just want to tell the world how needful I am... would I?  Maybe I need to.  I think all of us need a little dose (or maybe a big one) of humbling ourselves before our King.  All I know is that I am so grateful to Yeshua that He sent a Passover Lamb for me.  I know that I am in love with my Lord, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
