The message of Jonah is one filled with irony. First the sailors and then later the Assyrians are all so quick to recognize the power of God and the need to serve him, once confronted with the gravity of the situation (1:16; 3:6-9). And yet, Jonah, who claims to be the one serving the Lord, does not practice God as he ought to. Let that not be said of us.[click to continue...]
I interviewed Ramona Trevino, in the past, for ProLife365.com’s Pro-Life Warrior Spotlight Series. She ran a Planned Parenthood clinic doing abortion referrals. Then God intervened, giving her the grace to get out. Now she is an author and national speaker.[click to continue...]
Veteran sidewalk counselors tried to warn me up front. I tried to ignore them. I didn’t want them to be correct.
For, if what they said was true, it would surely be deflating. It would also stand opposed to my immense ego and overconfidence in my power of dissuasion.
What am I referring to? What was this inconvenient truth about abortion sidewalk counseling I didn’t want to accept?[click to continue...]
He writes, “For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
We have all likely read that verse, but have we remembered to apply it to our daily, pro-life work? Do we begin and end our actions in the name of the Lord by calling on Him to help us? Or, do we take the onus upon ourselves?
The stakes could not be any higher: life or death hangs in the balance. But even more importantly, the destiny of people’s souls is at stake.[click to continue...]
King, who converted to Catholicism in 2008, says he participated in over 140 abortions. The first one he partook in he was just 14 years old.
At the age of 21 King became a high wizard. He says he was called in by celebrities, politicians, and the like to perform rituals, and to cast spells.
What follows are some of the highlights (or lowlights?) of the article. King also gives good instruction to pro-lifers who pray outside abortion centers, which you can read below.[click to continue...]
They refused to stop to talk to me, but I did manage to point out, “If you are looking for a sign from God you’re not supposed to be here, look! He sent a priest to pray for you.”
They never even went into the building.
This morning I will be praying outside an abortion center.
I am not sure there is anything more sombering than that to do on any given day.
Surely, I will be there to protest what happens inside those walls. That is a given. But I continue to stand out there for several other reasons.
Here are but a few of the motivations for me to make the effort each week to pray outside an abortion center. I hope at least one of these convicts you to also stand outside your local abortion mill in prayer.[click to continue...]
When I heard her pray for the first time, I decided then and there I had to get to know her. I had to ask her out.[click to continue...]
Unbeknownst to Mr. Caraway, he caught the attention of a woman headed to the abortion clinic. She had her signal on to turn into the drive, but changed her mind, upon seeing his prayerful demeanor.
She ended up going instead to the nearby crisis pregnancy center for help. She chose life for her baby, Mr. Caraway later learned.
He saved a life, without talking to anyone. He didn’t confront anyone either, and a child is alive today as a result.[click to continue...]
“To surrender the ground that EVERY life is incalculably precious and sacred because we are created in the image and likeness of God is to lose the argument.” -Kevin Williams[click to continue...]
