§ 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.

Lamentations 3:22-24 (Pt. 5)  Thought//Prayer:“. . . Said My Soul.” Topics: 2@end.

“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, said my soul; therefore will I hope in him.”  (AKJV)  (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

Psalm 73:26:  My flesh and my heart fails: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.  (AKJV)

The writer (most likely Jeremiah) sort of talks to himself here.  Well, at least he references himself as though his soul is speaking.  It’s rather endearing.  His soul says, “The LORD is my portion; . . . therefore I will hope in him.”  Of course, God relates to us in our souls, as well as in our spirit and in our physical presence on Earth. 

If our souls are our “essence” of who we are, then Jeremiah is speaking from his center of being . . . speaking of God Whom he loves.  He’s speaking in a very endearing manner.  It is as though his soul is loving on the Lord (as we culturally say), his soul contemplating its love for the Lord.  It’s as though he is standing outside of himself . . . no, not “beside himself” as we say when we are upset over something . . . but looking at himself, his life, objectively and agreeing with himself, “Yes, my soul sees the Lord as my portion.  My soul speaks to the Lord.  And I’ll hope in Him.”

It’s a beautiful thing and is available for all who believe.  Each believer’s soul has the Lord as its portion.  We all can say, Yes, MY soul says the Lord is my portion . . . I’ll hope in Him.  Maybe we can see this little but profound contemplation from one of the Lord’s great souls in the Old Testament as a sweetness of which we all can partake, just as did Jeremiah. 

Lord, You have given each person on earth a soul.  Those who are facing LIFE’s life/death decisions; and the baby in the womb, at the moment of conception.  Lord, help us to see both of these groups of people – the distraught over LIFE – and the preborn – as so worthy because of the souls You have given them.  Those babies should be able to praise You from their souls as they live and believe.

Topics:  Pray for many praises from the souls of believers to go up to God as they praise Him for being their portions.  May many tomorrow know their portion – many who did not know Him today.
Mayors of our nation’s towns and cities to believe in the value of created life.
