Isaiah 28:5, 6   Thought/Prayer:  Turned Back at the Gate.  Topics:  2 at end.

After speaking to Israel about sin, “In that day the LORD of hosts will be a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the remnant of his people; and a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.” RSV (Read this scripture and more at

Where else for the spiritual battle to win than at the gate of an abortion business? If there has not been success up until the perhaps- distraught mother is literally “at the gate,” there is where victory needs to be staged. Whether a doorway or a gate, the entrance to these places can become a crucial point of victory.

It is not futile to think that a woman entering such a business as this will have no chance of turning around and going back out the door, because this does happen, in many cases because someone representing LIFE is outside offering hope and love. But if a turn-around can happen before the door/gate opens for entry, life is virtually assured.

We who engage in this battle must never let down even if those who want to deprive the unborn of their lives seem to be headed in strong marching formation up and through the gate; whether a mother truly thinks she believes in abortion – or is being coerced into it – she just doesn’t always walk through. Yes, millions too many do, but they do not always walk through. We must be vigilant and conflict-worthy and not lose hope up until hope cannot remain.

Lord, help us see victory at the gate and to claim it. You can be victorious anywhere and at any time. Help us to believe this.
