§ 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.

Psalm 139:13-16   Thought/Prayer:  Older Folks Who Loved Us.  Topics:  2 at end.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  WEB   (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

When an older person dies, someone who has been in your life almost always, it not only brings sadness but a certain reflection about things, things in life, things in our own lives.  Some of us, if not many or most, are blessed by older folks who loved us.  There were several in mine, and the last one has now gone to Heaven.  These folks lived to be in their 80’s mostly, and the lady whose funeral we will attend tomorrow was 96.  So why the reflection, and what it is sometimes all about for us left on Earth?

Maybe it’s just that funerals tend to focus us on the reality of life:  None of us will be here even 200 years from now.  Life ends.  At least on Earth.  But when we believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, we know we have an eternal extension on our lives.  There’s something magnificent awaiting.

But when we are saying good-bye to those who thought us special, it’s hard.  Even when we know that they are definitely in a good place now because of their faith, we still miss the form of them that we have known on Earth.  But part of the point here is that children thrive when they are made to feel special, that they are wonderful in the sight of older folks.  This scripture even says how wonderfully children are made.

It’s sometimes difficult when a child is coming along who was unplanned.  Sometimes we could feel that this child will be hard to love in the same way as perhaps other children who were part of a parental plan.  But let’s first allow children to be born, to make their timely exits from the womb.  Then we must pray for those who “family” these babies.  We should pray for all of the people who will influence children as they grow. 

Lord, help us to pray for older folks who are around as children grow.  Help each of them to be a cherished memory for the cherished children they know.  Indeed, help each child to BE cherished!

Topics:  Pray for grandparents of children who are unexpected in the world.
