On Behalf of the Speechless
Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously and plead the cause of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:8–9
Today, November 30 – Thursday, December 2, seventy-plus ministries will gather in Washington DC for The National Day of Repentance and Solemn Assemblies. Their purpose is to pray for the Body of Christ in America to turn from our wicked ways and repent. www.nationaldayofrepentance.org
On Wednesday, December 1, the Supreme Court will be hearing the Oral Argument in the Mississippi Ban on Late Term Abortion Case, Dobbs. This law will ban late term abortions after 15-weeks. The Body of Christ is invited to join with those in Washington to pray the day before, the day of, and the day after, for legalized abortion to finally come to an end.
I should be there. Not only because I am personally responsible for terminating the life of my own unborn child, and that of a friend I convinced to follow suit, but because I’ve known the guilt. I’ve eaten the poisonous fruit of my sins, suffered the tormenting repercussions. Mourned the loss.
Because I’ve also experienced the sweet release from that guilt and the healing of my soul that only comes through Christ’s forgiveness, I can open my mouth and plead the case for other speechless babies appointed to die. I can cry out for desperate mothers to realize that aborting their babies would usher in grievous miseries. Their child may not have a voice yet in this world’s courts, but their blood will speak loudly from the ground (Genesis 4:10). Their cries will reach the ears of The Righteous Judge and justice will be served to the unrepentant.
Let’s make our voices heard in the courts of heaven.
Blessings to you! By God’s grace, I will write again next week.
