§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Ephesians 1:15-23 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  Enlightened, Understanding Eyes.  Topics:  2 at end.

“15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which prevails among you, and of your love for all God’s people, 16offer never ceasing thanks on your behalf while I make mention of you in my prayers. 17For I always beseech the God of our Lord Jesus Christ—the Father most glorious—to give you a spirit of wisdom and penetration through an intimate knowledge of Him, 18the eyes of your understanding being enlightened so that you may know what is the hope which His call to you inspires, what the wealth of the glory of His inheritance in God’s people, 19and what the transcendent greatness of His power in us believers as seen in the working of His infinite might 20when He displayed it in Christ by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His own right hand in the heavenly realms, 21high above all other government and authority and power and dominion, and every title of sovereignty used either in this Age or in the Age to come. 22God has put all things under His feet, and has appointed Him universal and supreme Head of the Church, which is His Body, 23the completeness of Him who everywhere fills the universe with Himself.”  WEY (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened . . .”  Our understanding has eyes?  Seems it can be true, especially when this phrase is in the Bible.  But how does this work?

Think of how seeing persons take in the environment.  We look and see, and then we can understand . . . or not understand, depending upon what we see.  But through “seeing,” we take in information for processing in our brains.

If someone has poor vision or is blind, this process, of course, is different.  People in these situations must rely on others to help them understand when they cannot see.  This is a responsibility not to be taken lightly, the describing of the world to those who cannot see it.

Of course, God helps us all see spiritually, whether we have eyes with 20/20 vision or much less, or none.  And here he phrases words to indicate that in our understanding, we use eyes.  Eyes of understanding.  How interesting.  In processing what is around us, our eyes bring understanding into our being. 
Lord, we ask that our understanding will be of You and Your mind and thoughts.  Enlighten our eyes of understanding; only You truly can.  Then, we will be seeing with the best of all eyes: Yours, coming through our hearts of belief. 

Topics:  Pray for enlightened eyes of understanding when contemplating Pro-LIFE situations and decisions.
