For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13
How can the Church provide support to the community around the issues of abortion? How can we create a culture--not just political but also social and spiritual--that makes abortion unnecessary and unthinkable? These are the questions asked by Georgette Forney, president of Anglicans for Life. They "believe that every person in every church doing one thing every day to uphold the sacredness of Life can make a difference—and every person means you! No matter your age, experience, or talents, there are things you can do to celebrate, protect, and honor Life." Listen and learn as Ms. Forney chats with www.QCAradio.com.
Then, take action. Visit Anglicans for Life online for simple, easy ways to create a habit of upholding life. And at the very least, pray:
THE PRAYER FOR LIFE
Lord God, Thank You for creating human life in Your image.
Thank You for my life and the lives of those I love.
Thank You for teaching us through Scripture the value You place on life.
Help me to uphold the sanctity of life in my church and community.
Give me the strength to stand up to those forces that seek to destroy the lives of those most vulnerable, the unborn, the infirm and the elderly.
Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of respecting life.
I commit myself to protecting and defending the sacredness of life according to Your will, through Christ our Lord.
