§ 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.

Luke 2:15   Thought/Prayer:  The “Deep”  Topics:  2 at end.

“And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.”  KJV http://www.bible.com  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

It’s what I call “The Deep,” of Christmas Eve.  There is just something about the night of the day before Christmas that seems heavy with meaning.  It seems the depths can never be plumbed.  It’s more than we can ever match, in expectation.  Of course, the shepherds could not anticipate the event and were totally surprised.  But God has allowed us, over the centuries, to greatly look forward to it, and upward, and inward in ponderance.

Maybe mass or a candlelight service has been attended.  Maybe the family is just driving around and praising all of the yard decorations nearby.  Maybe it’s just sitting quietly by fire or decorated tree in the warmth of a home.  Maybe it’s meeting the needs of the homeless with a blanket and a cup of soup.

Whatever is going on, the eve before the celebrated holiest-of-all day, Christmas , is always special.  We try to take it in as much as our finite selves are able.  Perhaps mothers carrying babies in the womb have a special understanding of the anticipation of the Holiest of the holy, our Lord Jesus.  Perhaps mothers who didn’t plan for these babies, being conflicted about it, may gain some understanding when thinking of Mary and all she went through to get to the place where she bore her Child.  Let us pray for that understanding.

Lord, thank you for the anticipation and holiness of Christmas Eve.  No matter the time of year in which we contemplate it, help us to always think of the courage of Mary and Joseph in their circumstances.  We pray for Your special touch on unexpectedly pregnant women and their families today and for a richer, deeper meaning of LIFE and life for their babies on this night of depth.  Amen.
 
Topics:
Pray for all ministries for LIFE everywhere and that the message of Mary and her baby will come through to all those loved and served in their situations, whatever the circumstances.
Pray for all pregnant women everywhere.  God knows them, even if they do not know Him.
