“On seeing what had taken place, the centurion praised God and said, ‘Surely, this man was innocent.’” (Luke 23:47)  

Reflection: When Jesus died on the cross, the Centurion standing next to him repented of participating in his crucifixion. Many who used to perform abortions have now also repented, and they say, “Surely, these were innocent lives, and we are sorry.” They have formed a group called the Society of Centurions. They seek God’s healing and invite other abortionists to stop the killing.

Prayer: Lord, I pray today for the Centurions. Now that they have stopped killing children, let them find your healing and peace. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Dear Children, Stay Away from Idols

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Dear children, keep away from idols” (1 John 5:21). 

Reflection: Ginette Paris wrote a book called “The Sacrament of Abortion.” She claims that abortion is a sacred ritual sacrifice to the goddess Artemis. As patroness of animals and of hunters, Artemis represents the ability to both protect and kill. The so-called right to abortion means that the mother can give either life or death to her child.

Prayer: Lord, free your people from the deception of idolatry, witchcraft, and false worship, which threaten not only our relationship with you, but the lives of others. Preserve us in true worship and effective justice. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: God entrusts us to the care of one another

January 28th, 2015

“Life, especially human life, belongs only to God: for this reason whoever attacks human life, in some way attacks God himself.” – John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, n.9.

Reflection: No human being can own another, not even one’s own child. God entrusts us to the care of one another, but he alone remains the owner of human life. That’s why we cannot throw it away, no matter how small, frail, or inconvenient it may sometimes be.

Prayer: Lord, may all people acknowledge you as the only master of human life. May those who defend life understand that they are not only defending their brothers and sisters, but are also defending you!

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Who gave man his mouth?

“Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord?” – Ex.4:11

Reflection: God does not make mistakes. When a human being is alive, it is because God wants him or her to be alive. People do not have to measure up to our standards or expectations in order to have dignity and deserve protection.

Prayer: Lord, I pray for all those who are disabled, frail, and ill. Give them your strength and peace, and give us the eyes to see their dignity and value.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Protect them from the Evil One

January 26th, 2015

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“I do ask you to protect them from the evil one” (John 17:15).

Reflection: If you are wrong on abortion, you can’t be right on other issues.
To permit abortion, but then to cry out for the right to work, housing, education, health care, and so forth, is to say that these other rights belong to some people but not to all. They obviously do not belong to those who were snuffed out by abortion.

Prayer: Lord, protect your people in all of their rights. Preserve the goods you have given us, and help us to protect one another, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” (Acts 9:4)

Reflection: January 25, the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, concludes the week of prayer for Christian Unity. The Church prays that the whole world may convert to Christ, upon seeing strong unity among his followers. Christian Unity is not about pretending that there are no differences between denominations, but rather it is about recognizing and building on what we hold in common. The pro-life movement continues to be one of the most powerful practical ways that Christians are coming together.

Prayer: Lord, we praise You for the conversions taking place each day. Bring the world to unity in You. Amen.

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“The disciples asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Then Jesus beckoned a child to come to him, placed it in their midst, and said, ‘Amen, I say to you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’” (Matthew 18:1-3).

Reflection: It is an understatement to say that children are loved by God or important to Him. They are central, and they exemplify certain virtues and attitudes God wants us to have.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, keep our minds clear about who is most important, and keep our hearts focused on the children, that we may learn from them. Amen.

Nancy Pelosi: Is a child in the womb a human being or not? Answer the question!

January 23rd, 2015

podcastimage_53173

NEW YORK, NY — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is ducking questions about the humanity of the unborn again.

 

While discussing her opposition to two abortion-related bills in the House of Representatives, she twice refused to answer two reporters’ simple question: Is a child in the womb at 20 weeks’ gestation a human being?

 

Here’s part of the exchange between Mrs. Pelosi and the reporters from CNSnews.com

CNSNews.com asked: “My question is pretty simple. On the abortion issue, I understand your position on the legislation, but even the legislation aside, when it comes to the matter of whether or not an unborn child is a human being at 20 weeks gestation, what is your personal take on it. If it is not a human being, then what do you believe it is?

Pelosi responded: “You know it is really interesting that you would come to these meetings to talk about it. The fact is is what we have said: The life and the health of the mother is what is preeminent in when a decision is made about a woman’s reproductive health. It isn’t an ideological fight, it is a personal health issue.

(Read the whole story here: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/lauretta-brown/pelosi-wont-say-if-unborn-baby-20-weeks-human-being)

 

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement about Mrs. Pelosi’s refusal to answer a simple question:

 

“Here we go again with Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to answer a question that is not only scientifically certain but that also falls within the responsibility of lawmakers to know. It wasn’t long ago that Nancy Pelosi and I engaged in a public back-and-forth on this same point (see www.lettertonancy.com). She said I was being hysterical rather than intellectual. OK, Nancy Pelosi, let’s be intellectual. Why don’t you start by answering the question?”

 

Father Pavone issued a new invitation to the public to go to www.lettertonancy.com to express their dismay at the intellectual dishonesty of a lawmaker who should know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.

Brazilian Senator to attend National Memorial for the Pre-born

January 23rd, 2015

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Brazilian senator  leading a delegation from his country at the March for Life will be a special guest at the National Memorial for the Pre-born and Their Mothers and Fathers on Jan. 22 at Constitution Hall., 1776 D. St NW at 18th Street.

Senator Magno Malta and his wife, Congresswoman Lauriete Malta, are leading a delegation of 15 that includes former Congressman Luiz Bassuma.

The National Memorial is an annual interdenominational service designed to bring Christians and clergy together in prayer before the March for Life.

Father Frank Pavone, president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council and national director of Priests for Life, will deliver the sermon. Christian music artist and Dove Award winner Matthew Ward will perform.

The service will begin with a Catholic Mass at 7:30 a.m., and the National Memorial will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 10:30 a.m. Doors will open at 7 a.m.

Senator Malta is a lawmaker and a Christian minister for the Assemblies of God in Brazil. He and his wife are also well-known Gospel singers and recording artists. “My wife, Congresswoman Lauriete Malta, and I will join the March for Life to thank all pro-life Americans who work to secure the fundamental human right to life. We march because we grieve the holocaust of 57 million baby Americans whose lives were taken by abortionists since the Supreme Court rulings on January 22, 1973,” Senator Magno Malta said.

Senator Malta explained that abortion is legal in Brazil if pregnancy risks the life of a mother; if the baby was conceived during rape; and for babies diagnosed with the ‘fetal deformity’ of anencephaly.

“In Brazil, people of goodwill believe in freedom for persons of all ages, born and unborn. Therefore, we are working to prevent the holocaust of innocent Brazilian babies,” the senator said. “We humbly ask God to help all Brazilians choose life, not death. Pro-life Americans have saved many lives. Still, we Brazilians must prevent a legal holocaust like those we have seen in the United States and other nations.”

State of the Union Address offers more death for babies

January 23rd, 2015

 

“The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the future of his children for personal and immediate comfort and safety.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

President Obama, in his State of the Union address last night, said, “If we’re going to have arguments, let’s have arguments. But let’s make them debates worthy of this body and worthy of this country.  We still may not agree on a woman’s right to choose, but surely, we can agree it’s a good thing that teen pregnancies and abortions are nearing all-time lows, and that every woman should have access to the health care that she needs.”

What the President didn’t say is that abortion and abortifacients are not health care. They are reproductive deterrents that kill babies and sometimes their mothers. Abortion often hurts women. In RECALL ABORTION, Janet Morana outlines the harmful impact, of abortion, and #healingtheshockwavesofabortion further reveals why the President’s agenda isn’t good for women.

 Senator Joni Ernst (IA), in the Republican response to the President’s speech, listed what the new Congress intends to do for life, saying: “And we’ll defend life, because protecting our most vulnerable is an important measure of any society.”

There is s shift in our political climate. We must pray for transformation of hearts. In my KING RULES “Defend Life” chapter, the sanctity of life is highlighted.

I am so glad that my parents AD and Naomi King didn’t take the advice of “The Birth Control League” which later became “Planned Parenthood;” they chose life for me instead.

My grandfather Daddy King convinced my mother that because he had seen me in a dream three years before my conception, he knew that God wanted me to live. Mother accepted his promise to be there for her. He kept his word.

If Granddaddy were here today, he would urge us to pray for our government and all leaders, that God will guide them into serving with grace, peace, faith, hope and love. Amen
