Romans 15:30   Thought/Prayer:  Strive for the Babies.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; . . .” KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

This statement by the apostle Paul would make it seem as though prayer could be . . . yes, work.  And work it can be.  The word “strive” is used here in several Bible translations (Bible.com).  And if we’re striving, we’re not just sitting around muttering a bunch of weak prayers.  We’re really into them, our conversations with God.

To strive is to put out great effort toward something.  I was striving in prayer this morning.  Usually, if there is something about which I need to talk to God in this intensive mode, I pace.  I call it Pace-‘n-Pray.  The movement seems to add intensity in some manner.  But I realized something just now about it.  I was not striving for the babies.

I had things, people, on my heart.  But the preborn were not.  They should have been.  They should be in all my times of prayer. 

Sometimes it’s easy to concentrate on the tangible (people in our lives, for example), and it’s easy to forget those who are unseen – in this case because they’re still in Mother’s womb!  This should not be.  I need to fix this.  Whether I’m striving in prayer, or not, the babies should always be in my prayers – and maybe especially when I’m striving.  I will feel good about getting this fixed.

Lord, help us all, when we are really, really concentrating in prayer about different needs; prompt us to remember to always pray for the preborn, whatever their circumstances.  Help us to remember their mothers who bear these tiny lives within.  Help us to do the work of striving in prayer for them.

Topics:  Pray to never forget to pray for the babies.
