Today, like every Monday, my Cities4Life team and I head to the sidewalks of the abortion center to speak on behalf of the unborn, and to offer tangible help to the desperate mamas. I doubt the sidewalks will be filled like they were Saturday with 4,000 people praying for the end of abortion.
Buoyed by the sight of all those people praying, I, and maybe three others, will be standing on those sidewalks. We pray, but try to keep the prayers short, and always with one eye open, watching for the mamas as they arrive on the path to destruction. I pray without ceasing, but my call from God is to speak.
Speak His words of truth and hope in Jesus. Speak of the glorious sacredness of human life, made in His image. Speak of the tangible comfort and help through the huge network of Cities4Life supporters. Speak...and then follow through.
Provide for their needs immediately, as best we can, or point them to realistic resources.
Then, perhaps they will open their hearts to God because they will see His presence here on Earth.
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.
