Day 18 - You're blessed

We are hearing more and more stories from the sidewalk in front of the Kensington abortion clinic. We know God is hearing our prayers, and our community is coming to understand the function of that surgical facility where we gather to pray during 40 Days for Life.
Keep going, keep praying, keep sharing your stories!  We are so encouraged by all of you - and your peaceful, prayerful presence on that sidewalk.


Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven.  Matthew 5:11-12

Almighty Father, you allowed your Son to face persecution and ultimately death, and I know that no slave is above his master. Help me be a light in a culture that is trying so hard to forget about your love and sacrifice. I pray for all Christians around the world who are facing persecution for your sake today, no matter what the reason. May your name be glorified through their temporary humiliation. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. (prayer an excerpt from the book, 40 Days for Life, available on Amazon).
