“When a prayer or plea is made by any of your people…each on aware of his afflictions and pain…then hear from heaven…” 2 Chronicles 6:29-30
Reflection: Bertrand Russell once wrote, “A fisherman once told me that fish have neither sense nor sensation, but how he knew this, he could not tell me.” A practicing abortionist once told me that unborn children could feel no pain — but how he know this, he could not tell me either. Research now suggests that babies in the womb feel pain much earlier than we thought.
Prayer: Lord, may the pain of these children awaken the consciences of your people, that the killing may end. Amen.
