Dear Lovers of Life,
Some of you heard from me on March 2nd, when I relayed a prayer request regarding a young woman named J who was 6 weeks pregnant and considering abortion. She was talking to her boyfriend that evening.
The next evening we heard back that they had decided to keep the baby, and everyone was jubilant, thanking and praising God that this little one had been saved!
Now we need to pray harder and with more perseverance: her boyfriend is now saying he doesn’t want the baby, and she is still thinking about having the abortion.
I think this is a fairly common occurrence, because our enemy will stop at nothing in his desire to bring death and destruction, especially to the most vulnerable of our kind. However, where sin abounds, there does grace even more abound!
The last time we prayed, a dear Hispanic couple prayed earnestly, and each independently heard God ask them to adopt this baby, if J and her boyfriend did not want to keep their child. Imagine the Hispanic couple, their tears of joy and disbelief, when they turned to each other and shared the very same life-giving message!
When I heard this, I was even more in awe of the power of God to stretch hearts through a simple prayer request — this couple’s children are ages 19 and 22!
So now J is nearly 8 weeks pregnant, and I am including everyone on this email, and I can’t wait to see what our God will do for EVERYONE involved – including you and me! Please pray with expectant faith, that this little one may live!
Yours for Life,
