Prayer and Action
How much more effective can prayer and fasting be when it is accompanied with action? More than you can imagine. I believe that prayer and fasting are necessary, but laws typically change when we reach out to our representatives to change them. It has been thirty five years since Roe vs Wade, and 50 million Americans have been murdered in the womb. It's time to end this, and God gave us voices and fingers for a reason. We can call and email/write/fax our representatives and let them know how we feel.
For those of you who are really into prayer and fasting, join the monthly Prayer Pivot every first Friday at PrayerPivot.com. Then, if you would like to take action, join the Monthly Call for Life on the same day at MonthlyCallForLife.com. Then, get out to your local abortion mill on the first Saturday following the first Friday.
It's not just abortion we need to pray and take action with. People are encouraged to pray and fast for all topics for 24 hours around the world. Here are some of the other issues that need attention:
-- Genetic selection --
Minnesota and our Federal Government are pursuing the forced extraction of DNA from all newly born people in America. This information will be used in many ways, such as screening for health "defects", such as Down Syndrome. We all know what happens to 90% of the Down Syndrome children. They are with God because of their extermination. There is also talk of identifying "criminal" DNA, or other psychological defects. What do we think they will do to people who are found to be "defective"?
President Bush signed the Federal bill into law last month - Click here and here for more information.
One of the things the bill will provide is "`(D) the availability of Federal funding for newborn and child screening for heritable disorders including grants authorized under the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007; and `(E) other relevant information as determined appropriate by the Secretary."
-- Gender Selection --
People fly to America from around the world to kill their daughters. It is illegal in China, punishable by death there, and also illegal in India to scan for the presence of a female in the womb in order to kill her. Not so in America. Having an unwanted daughter? Head to your local murder mill and get rid of the little inconvenience.
-- Abortion or Pre-natal murder --
Obvious to us
-- Chimeras --
Albert Mohler points to this article by a pro-evolution left-winger at the Washington Post from last year about this topic

As Albert Mohler says, "We need a set of rules and policies in force right now -- before a mouse really does come up and ask for a cookie."
-- In vitro fertilization --
Human Life International pointed out today that "An astonishing 100,000 IVF pregnancy attempts are made annually in the United States alone, usually involving more than one embryo. The vast majority of such babies do not survive the unnatural thawing and implantation procedure. Currently in the USA 500,000 tiny children are in freezers awaiting eventual use, and 50,000 more join them each year. In Croatia, HLI's Dr. Antun Lisec claims that more babies die from the
"fertility industry" than by surgical abortion."
Not only that, but many of the IVF procedures result in "multiples", more than 1 baby as a result of implantation. When there are more than 2, a procedure known as selective reduction is recommended. Selective reduction is a fancy word that means kill. So if there are five babies, 3 are recommend for extermination, so as to increase the viability of the other two. "What will happen to the other three?" is a question expectant mothers and fathers ask. The answer given? "They will be absorbed by the body".
These are some examples of what I believe we have to pray and fast for every month. There are many others. Because the culture of death has been in power for so long, it will take determined action to stop them and turn the tide.
Yes, prayer is important, but action is too. Without action, the culture of death will continue its murderous rampage around the world. 10s of millions of people are killed by abortion alone globally every year. The scientific community is killing just as many or more.
