§ 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 37:23   Thought/Prayer:  Idiosyncracy.  Topics:  2 at end.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.”  KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Yes, a good man’s way is guided by the Lord.  But even then there may be things that grab his attention unexpectedly – seemingly at random.  I saw such a thing today.  It was a photo of a baby shoe that had been bronzed (to keep for “posterity,” a sort of retro way of preserving memories of our little children.  The shoe looked very pretty, and it was positioned on some type of base along with the ashtray. 

The ashtray!  The ashtray??!

Yes, an ashtray.  This baby memento was mounted on a base next to an ashtray.  Not that the maker of the piece should not sell such an item; that is their business.  But I could not help but be struck by the incongruous message seen by my glance there:  A memory of a new or young life; a picture of potential death through smoke.  It took me by surprise.

Yes, in our world, even when our steps are ordered by God, we run into rather odd combinations in life.  Of course, we just keep on walking when the odd combination is of little real importance, such as this ashtray thing.  But maybe we need to pray that these arrangements made by human beings are really the lesser things that they are, and also we could pray that babies being birthed soon will never pick up a cigarette or other form of tobacco.  We certainly don’t want a little one’s baby shoe mounted by their own smoking-gun killer.

Lord, this is a small instance of human indiosyncracy.  But there is no idiosyncracy in Your plans for every baby being carried in the womb today.  We just pray that you will help us humans limit our deadly dealings with illness and human-caused death so that every baby can live their potential life until the very end you have planned, without the attendant problems that can come from smoking and other habits. 
 
Topics:  Pray for healthy habits for all babies, throughout their lifetimes.
