Pray to end abortion
Sunday, Oct. 4, 2009, I joined 71 citizens who braved a misty, cool, fall day to demonstrate our freedom of expression for LIFE. We joined men and women of all ages all across the United States, Canada, and other countries who held up signs stating these facts: Adoption, the Loving Option, Abortion Kills Children, Pray to End Abortion, and Jesus Forgives and Heals.
For one hour, 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., we stood 12 feet apart, along both sides of the highway, quietly praying and/or softly singing and holding our signs. We received many, many positive signs of encouragement from people driving by on Highway 10. Only a very few were negative.
Statistics prove that killing of our unborn through abortion has devastated our country even more than war, terrorism and the financial crisis.
As the sun peeked through the clouds about halfway through the hour, raising the temperature from 48. to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it seemed to show me that there is hope even when all seems dark and hopeless.
Pray to end abortion, our newest sign, is the positive way to preserve life of our unborn. Preserving the life of our women (and families) who have experienced abortion can only come from the forgiveness and healing that Jesus Christ alone can give.
It was truly an hour well spent.
