§ 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.

§ Action Code

Help promote the Pro-Life Action Calls which are put out by Pro-Life organizations nationwide.

Galatians 6:9 Thought/Prayer:Don’t Want to Do That? Topics:2@end.

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”  KJV   http://www.bible.com  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Well, what if you are just plain ol’ weary?  You’re just plain tired and want to lie down for a couple of years and catch a few snoozes.  You want to go on an extended vacation of a couple of decades and have the chocolate candy and peanuts at-the-ready at any moment along with someone to pop them into your mouth like baby birds receiving what mother brings.

Well, it doesn’t work that way now, does it?  It actually seems that sometimes in life, those who are the rich, the famous, the “eased” actually get themselves into trouble because they don’t have enough to do – hence, unwanted negative publicity and unheard of problems can abound around them. 

But we all do need rest and sometimes a change environment or such, temporarily.  Jesus Himself sought times of respite, times to himself or in seclusion with His disciples (Mark 6:31).  And if He, the Lord of the universe needed this, we certainly will.

But maybe we feel guilty about not wanting to do some Christian service in some way.  We’d rather read a book, or just sit down for an hour – but we feel we must force ourselves to stand and get going.  Well, most of the time, we probably should!  But it’s important that we not burn out our candle, that we have some perspective, that of our Lord:  And He rested.

Quite frankly, I don’t want to be writing this devotion right now; I’d rather do something that doesn’t require much focus or attention.  I’d rather relax.

I will read that book, maybe tomorrow.  That’s when I’ll have a bit of rest maybe.  But right now, this task is underway, and I need to keep it that way.  But I’ll look forward to rest, just as Jesus must have.  But for right now I’ll finish this, and perhaps some pro-life person will take hope in a word or two here, and maybe that person will rest a bit and then be more fit for the service to which he or she is called.  Maybe a baby will be saved . . .  and a mother’s heart also.

Lord, help us to not feel guilty if we rest.  But also let us keep to our tasks, whether we have the feelings toward it or not.  We ask us to bless our pro-life efforts, whether they be working hard and steadily or slipping away for a little r&r.  For You.  With You.

Topics:  Pray for stamina but also for periods of refreshing rest for Christians in pro-life ministries.
