§ 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.

I Corinthians 12:28 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  Structural Governing.  Topics:  2 at end.

“And some, indeed, did God set in the assembly, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, afterwards powers, afterwards gifts of healings, helpings, governings, divers kinds of tongues; . . .” YLT   (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)  How do governors in churches and parachurch organizations “govern”?  The British monarch is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England.  But if a local church had a governor (and there may be churches who do have overseers of that title) how would it work that his or her duties would be carried out? Of course this would depend upon bylaws and organizational guidelines as for any organization . . . and a church is an organization . . . and hopefully organized!  (This is where a governor . . . or deacons . . . or elders . . . bishops . . . come into the practical structure of accomplishment, in any organization.)

Parachurch organizations (those that work alongside churches but are not churches themselves) must have governance as well.  In pro-life circles, this probably varies as much as there are different organizations standing for LIFE.  The responsibility that lies within the structures of these organizations is great.  Any group must do a good job of getting their job done, so to speak.  So are we?

Without going through the organizational set-ups of all pro-life, anti-abortion, anti-euthanasia, anti-disability discrimination groups, it would be impossible to tell how the flow charts of responsibility work.  Perhaps our task here are prayer people for LIFE is simply to pray that each group will be directed by God, as members allow His authority to work.  If we are to be effective, governing is quite important.  As it says in this scripture, some are given this skill more than others. 

Lord, we pray that in each of the pro-life groups and others mentioned here, that there will be those of administrative skills to lead, especially in the structure of each group, according to its purposes.

Topics:  Pray for wisdom to follow each and every person standing for LIFE in all the different pro-life groups.  Help the leaders to recognize the need for prayer in this important area.
