Day 5 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (9/26/21)

John 1:1-3

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 

Let Us Pray

O God, may we always be quick to call you Father. And when we call you father, help us to remember that, because of your creating love, we are your children. Also, when we call you Father, let your Spirit remind us that all people, from their beginning to their last day, are your children as well. We praise you, Father, that you sent your Son to reveal to the world that all people are His brothers and sisters, that all people are your children. Through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen. 

(Rev. Paul Stallsworth)

Rachel’s Vineyard Job Listing – Program Development Director

There is a job opening for Rachel’s Vineyard in the King of Prussia area of Pennsylvania.  For those who may be interested, details are listed below.  

rachels-vineyard-

from Evelyn Walsh, Doylestown Director
 
The main office of Rachel’s Vineyard and The Living Scripture Institute in King of Prussia has posted a job opportunity and I was asked to spread the word to see if there is someone out there who has the qualifications and is interested in the position.  It is more of a technical job with the purpose of implementing and utilizing an online educational platform.  Just as the rest of the world has found the need to develop an online presence, Rachel’s Vineyard and the needs of their increasing ministries require advanced technical support services for the purpose of training and continuing education for their ministry teams.  
 
Please see the job listing attached and contact the main office if you have any questions or are inclined to apply for the position.  Feel free to circulate this to anyone you know who has a heart for these psychological and spiritually integrated trauma treatment programs.
 
 

Day 4 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (9/25/21)

Genesis 9.5-6

Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man. Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man.

Let Us Pray

O Father, forgive us for our lack of courage and our want of compassion for the unborn and for those lost and hurt by abortion. Fill us anew with your Spirit. Renew our minds. Strengthen us in righteousness. Help us be people of salt and light within our nation. May every human being, from conception to natural death, be treated with the respect due those made in your image. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen. 

(Rev. John Brown)

Day 3 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (9/24/21)

Genesis 1:26-27

Then God said “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth..” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them

Let Us Pray

O Lord, open the eyes of the blind to the reality and the worth of the unborn. Give to your faithful people the courage and wisdom to endure in this ongoing struggle to bring them fully into the acceptance of the whole human family.  We pray this in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen. 

(Rev. John Brown)

Day 2 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (9/23/21)

Psalm 139:13-16

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed and in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. 

Let us Pray

Lord, I pray today for every unborn child. The beauty of the bodies and souls of these children flows from your hands and your eternal plan. Awaken in every human conscience a profound reverence for human life, and grant us grace to defend our smallest and most defenseless brothers and sisters, those still being formed in the secret places of their mothers’ womb. Amen.

(Fr. Frank Pavone)

Day 1 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (9/22/21)

Genesis 2:7

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Let us Pray

Lord, we are yours.  Thank you for breathing into us the breath of life.  Thank you for claiming us as your own.  May our words and actions in defense of human life proclaim to all the world that you alone are Lord of life and death, Lord of our freedom and of our choices.  We pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen. 

(Fr. Frank Pavone)
