As I have been getting out and meeting with many people since the election I am encouraged, especially by the youth. They have so many good questions and are so full of life and they will be the generation that abolishes abortion.

Today we remember all the veterans who have served in the military and fought for the freedom we enjoy today. We pray for all those living and deceased veterans of past and current conflicts. We also remember and pray for those who have returned broken in body or spirit.
Yesterday at my church, Believers’ Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, we remembered and thanked our veterans for their service.
In addition to our veterans, we want to also pray for all those men and women who are currently serving in the military. God bless everyone.
Thank you for your prayers, emails, tweets and PRAYERS for Priests for Life Staten Island staff, and indeed everyone impacted by the storm. With God’s grace we will weather the storm. We thank GOD for touching human hearts with compassion during this time. So often when lives are in danger, there is no compassion. Thank GOD for mercy, safety and compassion. Only HE can help us weather every storm.
I want to thank everyone for your prayers and phone calls inquiring if we are okay. We weathered out the storm along with everyone else. We have not been in contact with many of our associates as many of them lost power. I suspect it may be a few days before everything is back to normal at Priests for Life.
Just got word that our office building in the NYC evacuation zone was free of flooding or wind damage. Praise God! Power there is back, too!
While many people lost power and the storm did much damage, like the tanker below, we were spared from the storm.
However, there are so many in New York and other states that still need our prayers. Please continue to pray for everyone especially for those that lost their lives in the storm and their families.
While abortion wasn’t mentioned in the presidential debate last week, a TV ad featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden ran on Denver’s NBC affiliate during the presidential debate. The ad, produced by the Susan B. Anthony List’s Women Speak Out political action committee, criticizes President Obama for opposing an Illinois bill that would have protected babies born alive after an abortion.
THE VOICE OF JOHN will be released November 4. Please mark your calendar and plan to see the film and share it with many people! I was honored to meet the producers and be interviewed by Nurse Maryann Lawhorn. See trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dV9mwS5nCzk
God has a way of getting our attention through obedient scribes. As a grateful member of God’s “Ready Writer Team”, I enjoy sharing reviews of books by those I consider to be brothers and sisters in the battle as we wield our pens and/or keyboards. Recently, more and more powerful authors are being brought to our attention with messages to the Body of Christ and to those in the world who will listen.
In WALK IN GENERATIONAL BLESSINGS, Joseph Mattera challenges the Body of Christ to connect the past, present, and future by thinking and acting generationally. Stopping cultural decline cannot be accomplished by government, with science and technology, or on the battlefields of clashing civilizations, but only in the heart of our society—the home.
Does the Christian worldview include concerns regarding the economic crisis this election cycle? In “Good Returns: Making Money by Morally Responsible Investing”, George Schwartz and Lou Holtz offer time-tested wisdom on the complexities of the investment process; advice on how to invest in a morally responsible way; and information on how to screen and exclude companies according to a clear set of faith-based criteria: those who support or service the abortion industry, producers and distributors of pornography, and companies involved in embryonic stem cell research. This guide demonstrates that high returns are achievable without supporting companies that do not support similar values. Also included is insightful commentary on the current political policies affecting the country’s financial state.
Recently, my friend Wall Builders founder David Barton and I presented economic insight at Martin Gillespie’s (Executive Director of American Majority Action) voter education rally. The next day we joined a host of prayer warriors at America for Jesus (available on www.God.tv/america-for-jesus) .
On the way to the airport, I listened to Joe Mattera’s powerful message at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ct9nv-2ibFc&feature=youtube_gdata_player. He preached “How America exchanged God for gods” at a predominately African American Church. It was a the one who has ears to hear moment that bears sharing.
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention links of interest and a few books by yours truly, available at www.kingforamerica.org. WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, LIFE AT ALL COSTS, I DON’T WANT YOUR MAN, I WANT MY OWN and others are there for your library. Also, please visit www.africanamericanoutreach.com, www.Godsaid.org; and www.newindependentchristianparty.com. It might bless you take a moment and check out these ministry resources.
In 2005 I began to pray that God would break the covenant with death. By then I was on “the long road home,” praying also that people of God would escalate in prayer according to 2 Chronicles 7:14; “if my people…”. The church can turn the tide came to me back then.
Friends, the tide is turning. Press on for the mark!
The Marietta 40 Days team is on fire! It was great joining the group and my colleague Catherine Davis for an evening of prayer, praise, serious questions and information gathering. Pictures available at Priests for Life Frontlines
“Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer…” Proverbs 30:25
People often ask me what I do when I’m not out speaking, or teaching, or preaching, or prolife crusading… Well, today, I considered the ant. And the beetle. And the roses. And my mama. Also, I do washing, cooking, cleaning, and just plain ordinary tasks. I also work on improving relationships with those around me. Just thought you’d like to see some (EXTRA)ordinary pictures of God’s handiwork. And get a peek at my ordinary life. Much love from 1 Corinthians 13.
“The warning against the wastefulness of the prodigal is followed by a warning as emphatic against the wastefulness of sloth. The point of comparison with the ant is not so much the foresight of the insect as its unwearied activity during the appointed season, rebuking man’s inaction at a special crisis Proverbs 6:4. In Proverbs 30:25, the storing, provident habit of the ant is noticed.” Barnes Commentary on the Bible
Speaking of having foresight during prayerfully unwearied activity in the prolife struggle, let us not be slothful in the things of God; Faith, Hope and Love!
Have a blessed week!!!
From me, my assistant and everyone at Priests for Life,
we want to wish you all
