"For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

—Psalm 139:13-14 (NKJV)


Nearly 55 million abortions have been performed in America since its legalization in 1973 following the historic Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. Put in perspective, that's 20 million more people than the nation's most populous state, California. In fact, it would take almost 450 Hiroshima-like nuclear attacks to kill as many people as have been murdered in the U.S. through abortions since 1973. God's heart is to see the act of abortion completely abolished, so we must pray adamantly that hearts and attitudes are drastically changed on every level, from the pregnant teenager to those in legislation.

  • Pray that the hearts of our Supreme Court justices are turned so that Roe v. Wade is overturned and abortion is made illegal.
  • Pray for the hearts of women who have conceived, that Jesus convicts them about the new human life inside their bodies.
  • Pray that God's love is heard when sharing opinions with those who do not agree.

DAILY PRAYER

Lord, you have conquered death with your resurrection. Therefore, in Your name we come against the forces of hell and the spirit of abortion that has gripped this country for the past 40 years. We break the spirit of indifference surrounding those who work at clinics that perform abortions. We pray that those women who are faced with this critical decision will seek Your guidance. May Your spirit of life reign in their hearts so that they not only see that abortion isn't an alternative, but that You have made each life uniquely precious.
