Ephesians 6:18   Thought/Prayer:  Dr. King and Perseverance.  Topics:  2 at end

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; . . . ”  KJV (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

As we go about our pro-life work, our interests or callings, the word “perseverance” may come appropriately into play, spoken or unspoken.  Sometimes this trait may become a standard to uphold, a banner to fly in the face of many seeming defeats or seemingly insurmountable obstacles.  In some ways, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s mantra, “We shall overcome,” is a study in perseverance.  He knew up front that it was possible to overcome, but he must have known the perseverance it would take.  Things were bad.  Things did get better although not perfectly better.

But for those who grabbed onto his standard of overcoming, perseverance must have been a byword, spoken or unspoken.  In a sense, it was an inducting password, whether recognized or not; those who grabbed the cause and held on, consciously or unconsciously knew that it was a byword to the thick of things.  Things, causes, die out for lack of perseverance.  To lose this trait is truly a tragedy.

So where are we now in the perseverance toward doing away with abortion, euthanasia, and greatly negative attitudes toward the disabled?  Sometimes we do not need to take time to assess. 

Sometimes we need to use that time instead, to cultivate perseverance.  Strides have been made toward Dr. King’s goal.  But we still need to persevere, on and on.  Since his time, millions of black people have been murdered in the womb, a huge percentage by race.  Where is the equality in that?   

To overcome requires that we persevere.  Perseverance can bring about overcoming.  We’re right in the middle of it.  We cannot let this trait be lost in a perceived muddle.  When we’re in the middle, to continue to fight becomes paramount.

Lord, help us to not look around us and become afraid.  Help us to overcome through this attitude that will carry us to victory.

Topics:  Pray for strength to not give in or give up because of circumstances or a far-distant goal.
