Remembering The Unborn

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Today, Jan. 22, I would like to take this opportunity to honor and remember the lives of the unborn children.  For over the past 40 years 57 million lives have been cut short in their mother's womb through abortion.

I ask your forgiveness for how we as individuals, and as a nation, took your life here on earth before God's allotted time.  Please forgive us for acting in our blindness and selfishness.  From the moment you were alive - your life had value, purpose and destiny.  May the hands that hurt you become hands of healing. 

All... every single one of these lives are with their Maker, their Creator in heaven.  May the God of forgiveness set the bound free.  May the God of healing, comfort all who mourn.  And may the God of hope bring His love and mercy to every parent, every doctor, every nurse who worked to take your life, and mold you to become vessels of hope for others.

Every life has an appointed destiny to fulfill. 

The god of Roe vs. Wade, "God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting...", your time is up.

Use of improper language in classrooms and elsewhere on campus will be considered ... (click for more)
