What to Pray For Today:
1. PRAY FOR SALVATION. We do not need an excuse for our sin. We need an exchange—Christ’s righteousness for our sinfulness [2 Corinthians 5:21] Pray that people are not deceived by a false gospel. We are sinners, but Jesus said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” [Luke 5:32]. James Montgomery Boice puts it well: “The most important thing in life is to know that Jesus is able to save you from sin. The second most important thing is to know that you require it.” Pray that post-abortion men and women see their true need.
2. PRAY FOR PASTORS AND OTHER CLERGY. Too many pastors who say they are pro-life hedge their teaching on abortion because they fear backlash. Pastors should always approach abortion with biblical compassion, but when they are silent, Christians are not equipped to engage the culture with biblical truth. Pray that God would grant the pastors in your community courage to teach the entire counsel of Scripture, including commands against the shedding of innocent blood.
3. PRAY FOR CLARITY. Pro-lifers must not only contend with the secular culture, we also must contend with the distortion of Scripture. Pray for clearly stated arguments that cannot be easily dismissed by those seeking to distort Scripture and justify sin.
