This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“God did not give us spirit to timidity but rather a spirit of power and of love and of wisdom” (2 Timothy 1:7).
Reflection: Our pro-life work requires constant courage, which is nurtured through Scripture, incessant prayer, and the example of saints and other historical figures who fought against the injustices of their times. When we feel we don’t have courage, we should simply do what we would do if we did.
Prayer: Lord, at times I ask what I should do next, but I already know. I simply need the courage to do it. Grant it to me today. Amen.
