Whoever sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed,
for God made man in his own image.
– Genesis 9:6
Each and every person has innate value to God because He has created every human being in His image. Regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, giftedness, authority, or behavior, there is inherent worth in every person that God knits together in the womb. God esteems each human life and teaches us to do the same.
When human life is oppressed, or worse, taken without cause, great guilt comes upon those responsible. For example, Numbers 35:33 says,
You shall not pollute the land in which you live, for blood pollutes the land, and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of the one who shed it.
Since the legalization of abortion in the US in 1973, approximately 60,000,000 babies have been killed in what should’ve been the safest place – their own mother’s womb. The amount of blood shed and subsequent guilt in our nation is beyond imagination. May the Lord have mercy.
You can join others in praying for the protection of human life in America, in addition to your own prayers as we seek God for national revival. A friend of our ministry, Eileen Bakke, is helping to host such a nationwide prayer group.
You are invited to join On Our Knees, an ecumenical nationwide prayer initiative for life.
We are praying for the unborn and for the Supreme Court as it considers the Dobbs case which could upend Roe v. Wade. On Our Knees is comprised of two key elements:
- 15-20 minute weekly, guided prayer calls on Monday evenings at 8:30 pm ET beginning September 20. The number is (833) 380-0736.
- 31 Days of Prayer for Life, a daily devotional/prayer guide
