Prayers for 40 Days for Life

Prayers for 40 Days for Life February 20, 2015

This is from friends in Wenatchee, but the same goes for 40DFL nationally:

Dear Sisters and Brothers in the Lord,

I am writing to request your prayers and support for 40 Days for Life in Wenatchee, WA.

40 Days for Life is changing our community through prayer.  For the next 40 days, from February 18th through March 29th, we will pray and fast for an end to abortion, participate in public outreach to spread the Gospel of Life, and stand witness in peaceful, prayerful vigil outside Family Planning of North Central Washington.  40 Days for Life invites the community to recognize the tragedy of abortion and emphasizes a call to prayer and conversion.

As prayer is the most powerful weapon in our arsenal to end the scourge of abortion, we humbly ask that you join us in prayer and fasting on behalf of all those who are organizing, participating and witnessing in this campaign. We pray:

  • That God bless the efforts of His faithful during the coming 40 days of prayer;
  • That God protect His faithful from the attacks of the devil;
  • That God give His faithful the perfect response in love and truth to those who question;
  • For the conversion of the workers at Family Planning of North Central Washington;
  • For the women who are struggling and feel they have no alternative;
  • For the women and men who have been a part of an abortion in the past;
  • And most importantly, that God brings an end to abortion in North Central Washington.

We know that your prayers will be a tremendous help in the great struggle to end abortion.

Should you feel called to join us in public and peaceful witness at the prayer vigil outside Family Planning, or for more information to sign up to participate in the vigil, please visit 40daysforlife.com/wenatchee

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I thank you for listening to God’s call to pray for an end to abortion!

May the peace of Christ be with you!

    Mark, you are outrageously generous in sharing this prayer request with the whole world!! And this explains why we have had such amazing things happening, even on the very first day!

    At 8 AM Wednesday, I went to the florist shop to pay for the bouquet of flowers we always have delivered to Family Planning on the first day of the campaign. The florist and I were alone, and she opened up her heart to me. Long story short, she wants to come home to the Church, after decades away, PTL!

    The bouquet was delivered, along with an exquisite card which
    included Dutch Bros coupons for any drink, any size for each of the 7 clinic
    staff, with their names on each one. : )

    At 6:10 PM, one of the many Friends of Family Planning, a tall,
    athletic guy in his forties, came out and saw our 8 volunteers out there in the
    gathering dusk, and declared, “You guys have really taken a stand…I
    don’t agree with it, but I sure do admire the love with which you do
    it!”

    PTL!!! Keep those prayers a’comin’!

    Prayers for 40 Days of Life and the people involved!

    And now, for fun, I’ve seen the following:

    Anecdotal fallacy
    argumentum ad nauseam
    argumentum ad temperantiam
    Argumentum ad hominem
    petitio principii
    and
    argumentum ad populum

      And argumentum praying back peddle 🙂 Let’s not forget that! 😀

    it’s probably true that more americans support abortion in cases of incest, rape and malformaties/disabilities. the church allows “abortions” to save a mother’s life. not sure if anyone is 100% anti-abortion.

    of course this depends on how you define “abortion”. tubal ligation can be considered a type of abortion if used to prevent a tubal pregnancy. probably isn’t though.

    abortions for convienience, which include rape, incest and malformaties are what pro-lifers should oppose.

      “The church allows for “abortions” to save the mother’s life”

      Can you quote or link to where you’ve seen this taught by the Church please?

      • Artevelde

        The Church would allow for the removal of the uterus in case of aggressive uterine cancer even if it meant the death of the unborn child. They wouldn’t label that as abortion though, but that’s more or less a semantic thing. Google ‘principle of double effect’ and you can’t go wrong generally.

        • Eric

          Thanks. I’m familiar with the principle. I believe this is more than just semantics though. In the example you gave, the removal of the uterus would take place in the case of a woman who wasn’t pregnant also. So, the death of child isn’t the final cause of either case. The final cause of an abortion is the death of a child. Am I wrong here?

          • Artevelde

            The principle is clear enough, I’d say. Whether people want to call it ”allowed abortion” or ”this is not abortion but something else” is a semantic issue to me.

            • Eric

              “2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

              You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.

              God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.”

              Seems clear enough.

            • Eric

              I see what you mean by “semantics issue” though. Perhaps in discussions of this nature it’s necessary for all parties to define abortion. Good talk. Thanks.

  • HornOrSilk

    It’s nice to see (well, not really nice) that the clueless continues to demonstrate the fallacies I’ve indicated. Moreover, they have made it clear that they think some people are not worthy of life due to what their parents may or may not have done, or if they have “deformities.” Very clear what all that means — once you establish either as just cause to kill someone, even if you limit it in one space (a womb), it allows others to demand it in other places (outside of womb). Death penalty for the crimes of others here we come!

    • Artevelde

      It never was anything else than a warmed up Athenian argument versus the Melians. For Abigail, who not by coincidence displays some deviant art style esoteric mumbo jumbo mother goddess thing of sorts on her profile, it’s all very simple: the moral highground is held by those who can do as they wish, backed up by numbers. Her god, goddess or whatever, makes might right. Hope, justice and mercy are for the weak and not infrequently for clowns, extremists and people who refuse to submit in the face of overwhelming numbers. She is utterly incapable of even beginning to understand us. The only thing she does seem to grasp is that we are implacable enemies.

    • Eric

      Well, I can guess who AbigailTea will be gunning for first. Those pesky clowns. Their stupid red noses, squeaky shoes, and squirting flowers. They’ve got it coming to be sure.
