Attention all pro-life Americans:
I am calling for a day of prayer across America on Wednesday, March 4, 2020.
On this historic day, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in June Medical Services v. Russo. The state of Louisiana will defend its pro-life law, Act 620, which would end the abortion clinic loophole. Currently, abortion clinics allow unqualified doctors without local admitting privileges to perform dangerous abortions which risk the health and safety of women, and this law would end their careless practices.
Moreover, the Supreme Court will decide if states have a right to regulate abortion through the will of the people and their elected officials. Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, Americans have lived under the tyranny of abortion on demand. Over 60 millions babies have been legally killed by abortion. With newly-appointed justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on the bench, for the first time in 47 years, the Supreme Court is likely to decide in favor of life.
We finally have our day in court. But let us not forget that the real fight here is not a legal battle. The war is spiritual, and it is won through prayer and standing for the truth.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” -Ephesians 6:12
Will you join me in praying for LIFE tomorrow? Share this post, get on your knees, and cry out to God to give us the victory!
