§ 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 Timothy 2:1, 2 Thought/Prayer:  It’s Drive-By-An-Improver.  Topics:  2 at end.

“I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men: For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.”  DRB (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

Road construction.  It seems to be everywhere – or at least everywhere we are, be it a new road or repairs to an old one.  We grumble and gripe and rail against it.  Why must it be where we are, seemingly all the time?

Of course, it’s not all the time, and we generally take our roadways for granted until one is compromised by crews and machinery “in our way, slowing us down.”  We could moralize on the inadequacy of our acceptance of roads being improved, to say that we should appreciate that something is getting done and that eventually our time on these roads will be much improved.

But generally, we just don’t like to be disturbed during our get-to-somewhere modes and may become grumpy.  (We also could moralize on how we should thank all of those who work on our roads to make them better.  But this moralization would most likely fall on deaf ears made worse, of course, by loud machines laying down paving.) 

Why is it we grumble so?  Why are we so impatient, getting snarly and mad-faced with frowns?

It’s true, when we are trying to accomplish a day’s tasks, often transportation is involved, and most of us have a habit of starting too late on a trip to somewhere, assuming that there will be no lag time from construction.

Perhaps we should attempt this:  Think of the laboring persons that we pass by.  Think of the hard work some of them do.  Think of ways to appreciate them . . . maybe with a prayer for those we drive past.  We don’t know them . . . but God does.  Drive-by-an-improver prayer.  Maybe we should give it a try.  And maybe, just maybe, a prayer will be answered that makes a difference in LIFE, in LIFE decisions.  Could it not be that when we say prayers for those we briefly see, that God will know their greatest heart’s need, and that need may involve LIFE?

Lord, help us to not grumble but yet to humble ourselves in prayer for others.

Topics:  Pray for patience and kind-heartedness and to remember to pray for those who work for the general betterment of our lives.
