When a prayer or plea is made by any of your people . . . each one aware of his afflictions and pain . . . then hear from heaven . . .
-2 Chr 6:29-30
REFLECTION: Bertrand Russell once wrote, “A fisherman once told be 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 knew 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 so that the killing may end.
