§ 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.

§ Action Code

Help promote the Pro-Life Action Calls which are put out by Pro-Life organizations nationwide.

Psalm 42:8 (Pt. 5)  Thought/Prayer:  As Poems.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Yahweh will command his loving kindness in the daytime. In the night his song shall be with me: a prayer to the God of my life.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Let’s view our lives as poetry just for a moment.  Sometimes we compare our lives to other entities, such as sailing through life like a ship or breezing through life as a zephyr (or perhaps hurling through life like a tornado).  These are metaphors, of course:  the depiction of one thing by qualities of something similar.  She’s an angel; he’s a pig; she’s a sweet lily.  All metaphors.

Our lives as poems?  Just a couple of things about it:  We rhyme; we have rhythm. 

How do we rhyme?  Well, some things we do over and over, but in slightly different ways.  We perhaps move from one house to another; then later to another; and another.  Maybe these moves are just part of the rhyming of our lives.  And when we know God’s hand is upon these rhymes if sort, it can make a beautiful story like a poem.

We also could have rhymes in the way we worship.  Yes, we may go to the same church at the same time in every season.  But our worship will never be quite the same each time.  Our lives have gained another week’s perspective; we’ve grown a week older . . . maybe we’re one % wiser.  Maybe our minds are considering entirely new situations as we are in our newer worship.

But what about rhythm?  God works through us to guide us when we let Him.  Those who have lived into middle age may be able to look back and see certain times when a rhythm sort of took over.  Maybe we had tragedy; but friends and family and God pulled us through.  Maybe we have great celebrations.  These may seem rare at the time; but as we reminisce we may see that there were some shared intervals of timing.  Maybe about every 5 years there was something for great rejoicing; or maybe every 3, or whatever.  Probably we can see that the celebration and the tragedy offset each other.  And even if they don’t, our God gets us through, from one to the other.

Lord, thank you for the variations you build into our lives.  We admit that some are so very welcome; others will never beam welcoming because they are totally difficult.  But thank you that You are a God of it all . . . and that when we let you, You will set the rhythm of our lives.  We thank you that you conduct our lives, our life-poetry, with Your skill with our lives; and let us use it to help others in great LIFE crises to see it also, at least eventually.

Topics:  Pray for the ability to see God’s rhythm in life.  Pray for the ability to help others see it especially when going through the darker times.
