§ 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.

Acts 2:1-13 (Pt. 4) Thought/Prayer: Language Communique`. Topics: 2 at end.

“Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all with one accord in one place.  Suddenly there came from the sky a sound like the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Tongues like fire appeared and were distributed to them, and one sat on each of them.  They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak.
“Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under the sky.  When this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were bewildered, because everyone heard them speaking in his own language.  They were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, ‘Behold, aren’t all these who speak Galileans?  How do we hear, everyone in our own native language?  Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and people from Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya around Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians: we hear them speaking in our languages the mighty works of God!’  They were all amazed, and were perplexed, saying one to another, ‘What does this mean?’ Others, mocking, said, ‘They are filled with new wine.’”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

When you have goblins at the door (Halloween ones, of course) . . . do you hear different languages?  We do.  Well, maybe not actual spoken tongues, but yes . . . languages.

Hopefully there are no harsh words in English or Spanish being spoken.  That would be rare to hear I think.  But we do hear other types of language . . . those that follow societal rules, those of parenting, those of sibling-care, those of friendship.

It is heartening to hear “please and thank you” coming naturally from kids of all ages, applying proper manners.  Parenting brings out, “Do you remember what to say?” as a prompt.  Then, it’s heartwarming to hear an older brother or sister looking out after a younger sibling.  “Here, take one of these,” or “Did you get that treat in this jack-o-lantern bowl”?  And then there are the friends who go and get a pal because the pickin’s are pretty good over here . . . over there. 

Lots of ways to speak a language we know.  God put them all into our make-up as humans.  We hear a lot about love languages.  That’s what we were hearing on Halloween night, in the clear cool air of fall.  The air quality seemed to make everything more personal, more understood or such.  Every ethnic group has its own language with some far-reaching, such as English or Spanish.  But every person also speaks unspoken words and meanings, such as are heard from little and even some pretty big goblins-at-the-door.  Going and grabbing a friend to bring for a special treat . . . it’s as beautiful as the spoken word. 

Lord, we want to speak the unspoken language of love.  You are the source of all love because you are love.  We ask you to help us convey love through the caring words we speak, like a big brother to a little fellow in his family, cautioning to be careful down the steps.  Thank you for the blessings of the human communique of love.

Topics:  Pray for love to be shown through the way we speak, just as family members do when looking out for each other’s welfare.
