The Strategy of Prayer

For some time, I have been "snooping around" pro-abortion websites to see what their strategies are in advancing their "cause" , to see how we can counter their strategies.

But the Lord showed me that here is the greatest weapon--that no pro-abortion person will ever know or be able to use---the weapon of prayer. When we pray, we are communicating and conversing with the King of Kings, the Alpha and the Omega, the Faithful and True Lamb of God. Psalm 22:28 says that dominion belongs to the Lord and He rules over the nations. Psalm 94:2 says that God is the judge of the earth. Pro-abortion persons think the way they think because they don't believe in God or they outright hate Him. But whether they believe in Him or not does not change the fact that God exists, that He rules over the nations, and that He is the judge of the earth whom everyone will face and who will one day judge everyone on earth.

In 2 Kings 6:17, Elisha asked God to open the eyes of his servant--that His servant could see the multitude of fiery horses and chariots of the Lord fighting for them. And this was just two people! (Think of it, before the servant's eyes were opened, it was just ONE person, Elisha, who saw the fiery army of God!) May we always see the fiery armies around us everytime we pray the will of God! And may we always pray militantly!

When you are the Lord's bondservant, the Lord gives you the keys to the kingdom of heaven--what you bind is bound, what you loose is loosed(Matt.16:19)...you can call things that are not as though they were(Romans 4:17). You can pray God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.(Matt. 6:10)

This strategy of prayer can never be equalled. Why? Because it is from God, who made the heaven and the earth. When you pray God's heart, or when the Holy Spirit shows you God's heart and you pray for His heart and will to be done, you are walking in all the power of God! What's more, Colossians 2:3 says that in the Lord Jesus are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. If we remain in Christ, all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are available to us. The Holy Spirit tells us what to pray for and what to do.All the knowledge, wisdom and strategy we need for the pro-life ministry God has given are in the Lord Jesus! Thanks be to God!

Life Site News: CNN Rejects Life-Affirming Ad - 2nd Major Network to Do So


Article By John Jalsevac

February 20, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - For the past number of weeks an extraordinarily popular, life-affirming ad by Catholicvote.com has been making the rounds on the internet, having been viewed 1.6 million times on Youtube alone. However, the makers of the ad are now reporting that CNN has refused to air the ad on its station, making it the second major network to reject the ad and its positive message.

The ad shows an ultrasound of a baby in a womb, while superimposed text explains that during his life the baby's father will abandon him, and his single mother will struggle to support him. But, "despite the hardships he will endure," the ad continues. "This child will become the 1st African American President." The ad concludes with a picture of President Obama and the slogan, "Life. Imagine the Potential."

Due to its popularity, the ad's makers had originally sought to have it aired during the Super Bowl on NBC. But the ad was rejected, ostensibly because of its "advocacy."

In a letter to supporters, Brian Burch from Catholicvote.com, says that following the NBC rejection, "We contacted CNN, thinking their audience contains precisely the type of people we want to reach. Further, given CNN's track record of running advocacy ads, we were confident we would succeed. Not so."

Burch reports that after several weeks of repeatedly contacting the network, he has received a letter from CNN, reading: "Thank you for your patience. We have decided to pass on this creative. CNN doesn't accept advocacy ads that portray personal decisions in a manner that suggests a position in favor of the advocacy message, without having permission of the persons involved."

Burch, however, says that the excuse is "absurd." In the first place, he observes, the ad does not in any way suggest that President Obama himself is pro-life. He also points out that CNN has in the past accepted ads that have imputed positions to individuals, without their permission.

In 2005 CNN ran an ad sponsored by the pro-abortion activist organization NARAL, that indicated that Judge Roberts "excused" violence against abortion clinics. FactCheck.org called the ad "false" and described that ad like this: "An abortion-rights group is running an attack ad accusing Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers 'supporting ... a convicted clinic bomber' and of having an ideology that 'leads him to excuse violence against other Americans' It shows images of a bombed clinic in Birmingham, Alabama."

Burch observed, "CNN is willing to run ads insinuating that a federal judge supports violent criminal activity, but it won't allow an ad celebrating the potential of all human life, including Barack Obama?"

Burch concluded his letter, saying, "Of course, all is not lost. CNN's refusal will only create more attention for our ad, which has been widely discussed even among abortion groups like NARAL and nationally-syndicated columnist Ellen Goodman. The ad remains a viral hit on the Internet … We have successfully provoked a national conversation about the gift of every human life -- which is why we created the ad to begin with."

Everyone was a former embryo.

EVERYONE, without exception, was a former embryo. Unless you are Adam or Eve. So those who think embryos aren't human beings should remember that they were once embryos and that they started their life as a zygote.

These are pictures from the March for Life official Facebook Group photo album.
