§ 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 24:1, Luke 24:12   Thought/Prayer:  Alleluia.  Topics:  2 at end.

The women who followed Jesus’ body to the tomb went home to prepare spices and perfumes for its wrappings. 
Luke 24:1
“The Resurrection
And on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled back from the tomb, and on entering they found that the body of the Lord Jesus was not there.”
Luke 24:12   “Peter, however, rose and ran to the tomb. Stooping and looking in, he saw nothing but the linen cloths: so he went away to his own home, wondering at what had happened.”  (WEY)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

On Easter, or the day after, many may have the old hymn, “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today” running around in their minds.  The words to this wonderful hymn of praise were written by Charles Wesley in 1739 (public domain).  For almost 300 years Christians have rejoiced on Easter Sunday, singing these words put to music.  Maybe you have had the melody of ascending notes accompanying you through your Easter day or the day after.

The first two verses pretty well sum up the work of Jesus in His coming to our planet.  Yes, He was put to death.  BUT . . .

Christ the Lord is ris’n today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once He died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

This entire song is dedicated to extolling the Lord Jesus Christ and His miraculous exit from the death wrappings and grave. 

The first verse?  Rejoice!  Alleluia!

The second verse?  He lives again!  There is no more sting in death!  He died to save our souls.  The grave has no more victory. 

The uplifting melody brings our voices higher up and up.  The “ALLELUIAS” are pinnacles of praise, lifted upward in the musical notes.  The word Alleluia means the same as Hallelujah.  It means expressing praise, joy, or thanks especially to God. 
And the thing is, the praise and joy and thanks may go on and on, even after the song has ceased to replay itself in our heads.  We carry the song around with us unaware, in praise.

When we pray for those who are trying so hard to work out difficulties of LIFE in their lives, the words of a song such as this may cause us to lift our hearts a bit more in praise; we can sing alleluias for the answers to the prayers that will be forthcoming as we hold up these folks in prayer. 

Lord, help us to carry around praises to You in our minds and hearts, especially those that extol Your wondrous gift of salvation to all who will receive it.  We pray that many who counsel others for LIFE will be blessed in praises to You.

Topics:  Praise God for the songs He gives us through persons He inspires, and may they be with us for others to learn to praise Him also.
