Voices for Life Prayer Campaign Week 5 – PA State Rep Brian Sims

simsWe are in our 5th week of our 6-week prayer campaign for elected officials who support ending newly created life through abortion on demand.  Please join us as we pray for our candidate this week Democratic Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims.  Though he is not a marquee national name, in a way he represents all small town, city and state government representatives who have an opportunity to keep progressing through the political ranks – and at each step gathering more power.  If we could change their disdain for our pre-born children early on, we might not have to fight the pro-life battle at every political front later on.

Brian Sims became newsworthy in the Philadelphia area for videotaping himself while he verbally chastised a peaceful witness outside a Planned Parenthood in downtown Philadelphia.  In another incident he continued this irrational and aggressive behavior while a woman with three girls were praying outside the same abortion center, offering a bounty to anyone who could identify them.

He states he will continue to protect women’s rights and is committed to being a better advocate and ally for women’s rights.

Sims needs our prayers not only for his lack of recognition for our preborn children but also for the rage that he is unable to control.  We ask the Lord to bring a sense of peace to this man so that he can hear His message, and so that he can engage in valuable dialogue with those who hold a different point of view from his – that children have a right to live their lives.

Give up your anger, abandon your wrath;

Do not be provoked; it brings only harm.

Those who do evil will be cut off,

But those who wait for the Lord will possess the land.

(Psalm 37, 8-9)

 

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez #onesoulatatime

Voices for Life prayer campaign continues into the 4th week.

AOC

This week please join us in praying for NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ocasio-Cortez has been the subject of some memes that attack her intelligence. I know because I have neighbors that love using her as a punchline. Here, she is the subject of prayer for her to open her eyes as she supported the murder of 1/3 of her peers. When I did my research on her, it has occurred to me that she is just two months older than me

I chose her for three reasons:

  1. She is originally from Venezuela where socialism is drying the very bone of a once productive country.
  2. She has made a poor metaphor about abortion
    1. Comparing abortion to dog-breeding
  3. She is unapologetically pro-abortion
    1. Population Control
    2. Slams Georgia Lawmakers for Abortion Ban
    3. Force Americans to pay for abortion with taxpaying dollars

Let us pray for Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s:

  • That God sends many Christians across her path to share the Gospel
  • That the light of Christ sets her free from the deceit and darkness of satan
  • That she falls to her knees and surrenders her life to Jesus Christ, her only hope for salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit shows her overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
  • That she becomes an advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.

Please join me this week in remembering Representative Ocasio-Cortez in your daily prayers.

Now, please join me in prayer.

Fount of Mercy Prayer
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, we come to You with a contrite heart and with faith for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that You will give her the grace of conversion. O blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. Enlighten this mind that is ensnared in ignorance and sin and darkness. Bring her into the fold of the Holy Catholic Church. Amen.

“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”  James 1:21

Dear Bishops: Be Lions for Christ

The following is from an email blast sent out by Judie Brown of the American Life League. Please see information on how you can encourage your bishop to be bold and take a stand against public servants who dismiss Catholic teachings while in public office. 

The ongoing hypocrisy of pro-abortion Catholics like Joe Biden continues to boggle the Catholic mind. It is hard for any of us to understand how any thinking human being who claims to be Catholic could be such a voracious supporter of aborting little babies! Yet that is exactly what Biden and his ilk are up to on a daily basis.

On the other hand, we have the American Catholic bishops who are all atwitter with the coronavirus, shutting down churches and encouraging Catholics to use at-home resources including online Mass. Baltimore’s Archbishop Lori told the media: “We do not feel as though we have been forced into doing this by the government. We feel like we’re doing the right thing.”

Yet, when it comes to pro-abortion Catholics like Biden and Pelosi spreading a virus of disdain for preborn babies—a “virus” that surgically kills more than 2,000 individual human beings daily—the bishops only resort to occasional criticism. They have never taken steps as a united body to deny Biden the sacrament of Holy Eucharist.

In fact, the entire cast of characters known as the USCCB has never acted to deny any pro-abortion Catholic public figure the body of Christ!

Somehow it seems easier for bishops to shut the doors of the Church to faithful Catholics than to defend Christ from sacrilege.

We know that Christ’s presence in the Eucharist is real. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that “the Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’” It further explains:

The mode of Christ’s presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as “the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all the sacraments tend.” In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.” “This presence is called ‘real’ – by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be ‘real’ too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present.”

Knowing the truth of these words and knowing the devotion that such a teaching should command, we are speechless to explain why the bishops are silent. It would seem to us that, just like the young boy Saint Tarsicius, our bishops would prefer death over permitting any sacrilege to befall Christ in the Eucharist.

But first, faith must exist. And it must be a faith in the real presence of Christ.

Fr. John Hardon, S.J., a holy priest who brought many to the Church and back to the Church, taught this about the body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist: “Only those who really believe that God became man can even begin to believe in His Real Presence now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Thus, faith in the Incarnation is the foundation for our faith in the Real Presence. As a result, growth in our faith in the Incarnation is the condition for growth in our faith in the Real Presence.”

Joe Biden has said that “no one is expendable. No life is worth losing,” yet he condones the act of aborting a baby.

The bishops have said, in joint statements and with a single voice, that “abortion ends the life of a child and offends God.” Yet they are silent when it comes to defending Christ from sacrilege.

This dichotomy is a tragedy. We call upon the bishops, and we ask you to do likewise. Let them know that, as ordained men of God, they are obliged to defend the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist in the same way they defend the real presence of the child prior to birth.

Let us remind them, one by one, that “only those who really believe that God became man can even begin to believe in His Real Presence now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.”

The Catholic bishops are obliged to teach, not tremble, especially in times like these.

Dear Bishops, be lions for Christ.

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign Week 1 – Governor Andrew Cuomo #onesoulatatime

‘Winning the war against unborn babies and their mothers one soul at a time’

Andrew Cuomo

Today begin’s our 6-week Prayer Campaign for some of our elected officials.  We are asking everyone to join us in praying for the particular politician we post for the whole week.

I’ve chosen Governor Andrew Cuomo this week as to me he is someone who is in desperate need of our prayers. Governor Cuomo is on record as stating he believes in abortion up to and including the moment of birth of a baby, and during the present pandemic, he has ordered nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients.  He doesn’t seem to value life at either end of the spectrum.

Let us pray for the governor’s conversion :

  • That God sends many Christians across his path to share the Gospel
  • That the light of Christ sets him free from the deceit and darkness of satan
  • That he falls to his knees and surrenders his life to Jesus Christ, his only hope for salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit shows him overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
  • That he becomes a advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.

Please join me this week in remembering Governor Cuomo in your daily prayers.

“This is what we are all about…conversion. We will continue to reach out to these men and women in love. Hate doesn’t work. Condemnation doesn’t work. Judgment doesn’t work. The mercy of Christ is what WORKS. Please pray with us….You are making a difference.” Abby Johnson, former PP clinic director and founder of ‘And Then There Was None’

Pardoned by Trump, Angela Stanton-King, Alveda King’s Goddaughter Now Running against Rep John Lewis: ‘This Isn’t the Selma Bridge, and Our Babies are Dying’

“I turned my life around. I have completely redeemed my life,” Angela Stanton-King, Candidate for US Congress  

Angela Stanton-King
Angela Stanton-King

Carlos Garcia writes for The Blaze.  Voices for Life shares his report on Alveda King’s goddaughter, Angela Stanton-King who is running against Rep. John Lewis (D), Georgia  She opposes the Democrat’s pro-abortion policies.

“I turned my life around. I have completely redeemed my life,” Stanton-King said. “This A former reality show celebrity and author who was pardoned by President Donald Trump will face one of his loudest foes in Congress as she runs to replace Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.).

Stanton-King was convicted in 2004 on charges related to a car theft ring and she spent more than two years in prison for the crime, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

The president pardoned her in February.

“Today, (Stanton-King) is a national best-selling author, widely acclaimed television personality, and proponent of criminal justice reform,” read a statement from the White House.

“She works tirelessly to improve reentry outcomes for people returning to their communities upon release from prison, focusing on the critical role of families in the process. This pardon is supported by Alveda King,” the statement added.
Stanton-King is the goddaughter of Alveda King, the pro-life activist.

The best-selling author said that she respects Lewis’ record of fighting for Civil Rights, but she opposes the Democratic party’s pro-abortion policies.

“I have the utmost respect for the contributions that he has made to black America,” Stanton-King said, “However, this isn’t the Selma bridge, and our babies are dying. It is time for war.”

Lewis has also been an outspoken opponent of Trump, and went as far as boycotting a Civil Rights event in 2017 because the president would be in attendance as well.

“This isn’t about replacing John Lewis, this is about picking up the torch and continuing the fight for Justice,” she tweeted.

Why I’m Passionate and Committed to Speak and Work on Behalf of the Unborn.

 

 

Len Deane 2
Leonard A.Deane, Jr.

 

Len Deane is a staunch supporter of the sanctity of life, especially unborn babies. He tells his personal story of his mother’s decision to chose life for him against the advice of her doctor to abort him. 

My Family and Friends, I wanted to share with you why I’m passionate and committed to speak and work on behalf of the unborn. As a young boy, age 11, I asked my mom “what is abortion?” I guess she explained it to me that some mommies don’t want their babies and they are aborted. And then she told me a story about my birth.

My sister was born 10 months before my birth and the doctor told my mom that she should have an abortion, because the baby (Len) may not live or would not be very healthy. My mom rejected the doctors advise and I was born on July 29 1941. I wasn’t a real healthy baby and the doctor told my mom, I would have a very short life.

Well 78 1/2 years later, I’m a healthy “old man” with two wonderful adult children (Holly Lynn and Brian Allan) and three incredible healthy, beautiful and intelligent grandchildren (Arbour Leigh, Quinn Caroline and Ethan John). Abortion affects generations to come; in my case two children and three grandchildren.

The word of God is clear: Proverbs 24:11-12 “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter…” Psalm 139:13-16 “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” Isaiah 49:1 “…Before I was born the Lord called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name.”

I’m asking you to join me as we fight for the life of the unborn in our community, schools, colleges and the market place. This is why I can’t support pro-abortion candidates. Below…2020 Democrat Presidential Candidates position on abortion.

Blogger’s note:

Vice President Mike Pence Slams Democrats for “Refusing to Protect Babies in Their Mother’s Womb”

The Democratic Party has grown increasingly radical and out of touch with most voters on abortion. The party platform supports abortion without limits and calls to force taxpayers to pay for them.

mikepence9

Below is a Life News report by Micaiah Bilger.  She covered remarks from Vice President Mike Pence condemning Democrats for “refusing to protect babies still in their mother’s womb”

Vice President Mike Pence denounced Democrats this week for rejecting bills to protect babies from abortion and infanticide.

“As Republicans continue to support important pro-life policies, Democrats are bowing to the most radical elements of their party & refusing to protect babies still in their mother’s womb,” Pence wrote Tuesday on Twitter.

Because of Democrat lawmakers’ love affair with the billion-dollar abortion industry, the U.S. Senate narrowly blocked two pro-life bills Tuesday that would have banned late-term abortions and provided protections for infants who survive them.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act both failed to obtain the 60 votes necessary to overcome Democrats’ filibuster.

Pence slammed Democrats for opposing such basic, common-sense protections for babies during a speech Tuesday in Michigan, The Oakland Press reports.

“Democrats in the Senate actually voted down legislation that would protects the lives of children that survived abortions,” he said. “I’m proud to serve as vice president to a president who stands for the right to life. He’s the most Pro-Life president in American history.”

He welcomed all pro-life Americans to join the Republican Party, responding to Democrat leaders growing rejection of pro-life voters.

“President @realDonaldTrump is the most pro-life President in our Nation’s history & our Administration will always fight for the innocent lives of the unborn,” Pence added on Twitter.

The Democratic Party has grown increasingly radical and out of touch with most voters on abortion. The party platform supports abortion without limits and calls to force taxpayers to pay for them.

All of the top Democratic presidential candidates also support abortions through all nine months of pregnancy and want to force taxpayers to pay for them. Two of the candidates, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg, recently even refused to welcome pro-life Democrats into the party.

Catholic Bishop Slams Democrat Presidential Candidates: “All of Them are Pro-Abortion”

This week, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops also released a series of videos to encourage Catholics to vote pro-life. The bishops urged voters to make protections for unborn babies a “preeminent priority” at the voting booth this fall.

It’s no secret that the Democrat party supports abortion.  In their 2016 platform, they included language supported extreme measures such as:  no limits on abortion up to the third trimester and taxpayer-funded abortions.  Below is an urgent report from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops posted in Life News and authored by Micaiah Bilger,

Frustration with the Democratic Party’s extreme pro-abortion agenda is growing.
On Wednesday, Rhode Island Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin joined a crowd of voices in questioning the party’s allegiance to the abortion industry, rather than its own voters, Breitbart reports.

“As the presidential primary shifts to New England, it’s sad to note that all of the major Democratic candidates are pro-abortion, supporting even partial-birth abortion,” Tobin wrote Wednesday on Twitter.

Nearly 1 million unborn babies are aborted every year in America, and Democrat political leaders are pushing for more. All of the top Democratic presidential candidates support abortions without restriction through all nine months of pregnancy and want to force taxpayers to pay for them. Some candidates even have refused to welcome pro-life Democrats into their so-called party of inclusion.

This radical pro-abortion stance is alienating voters, and pro-life leaders who are Democrats have been vocal about their disgust with the party for ignoring Democrat voters’ opinions and advocating for the billion-dollar abortion industry’s agenda instead.

“Where are pro-life Democrats supposed to turn? Or are pro-life voters not welcome in the Democratic party?” Tobin asked Wednesday.

The Democratic Party platform does not even align with moderate voters. In 2012, party leaders removed the word “rare” from the abortion platform, and, in 2016, added language calling for taxpayer-funded abortions. The platform does not support any limits on abortion, even in the third trimester when babies are viable.

Polls consistently show that most Americans, including a large number of Democrats, do not support such extremes. A recent Gallup poll found that 59 percent of Democrats want at least some restrictions on abortion and 29 percent identify as pro-life.

Pro-life Democrats ‘Fed Up’ with Party’s ‘Abortion Extremism’

Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats for Life of America, has threatened to withdraw support from candidates who would exclude pro-life Democrats from the party.

Pro-life-protesters-

In a recent exchange between Pete Buttigieg and Kristen Day of Democrats for Life, the presidential candidate admitted the pro-life position was not welcome in the Democrat party.  Below is a report from Thomas Williams, Ph. posted in Breitbart News about this encounter and its ramifications.

“We’ve had enough,” Ms. Day told Catholic News Agency (CNA) this week following an encounter with presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg who said he would be willing to live without the support of pro-life voters in order to maintain his total support for abortion-on-demand.

As Breitbart News reported, Buttigieg told Ms. Day that there is no room for the pro-life position in the Democrat Party and that he would never support any restrictions on abortion.

“I am pro-choice, and I believe that a woman ought to be able to make that decision,” Buttigieg said in a Fox News town hall in Iowa when questioned by Day regarding the party’s diversity and inclusion of pro-life people.

In her interview with CNA, Day expressed her dismay over the Democrats’ utter subservience to the abortion industry, noting that pro-life Democrats are simply “fed up.”
These presidential candidates “are so afraid of the abortion lobby” that they will make no room for pro-life Democrats, she said, because “they’re afraid that they’re going to lose all their money and support.”

“I just wanted to know if he [Buttigieg] thought there was room for us in the party. And he doesn’t,” she said.

Ms. Day said that pro-life Democrats need to show more muscle when dealing with the party leadership.

“We need pro-life Democrats all over the country to go to these candidates and ask the question: Do you want pro-life Democrats in the party? Because if not, we won’t vote for you,” she said.

Day also told CNA that Democratic activists are very vocal about their support for abortion but do not faithfully represent the rank-and-file, which is more divided on the issue.

When it comes down to the details of abortion policy, many Democrats cannot be classified as “pro-abortion,” she said.

While many describe themselves as pro-choice, regarding legal abortion for all nine months of pregnancy or the removal of safety regulations of abortion clinics, “when it comes right down to it, most people agree with me,” Day said.

The party’s “abortion extremism,” she said, “is not going to be a good long-term strategy for them.”

Ms. Day had already condemned her party’s radical pro-abortion platform prior to the 2016 presidential elections, which saw pro-abortion Hillary Clinton defeated by Donald Trump.

Day said that some Democrats had phoned her to say they would not vote for Hillary Clinton because of her extreme pro-abortion stance.

“This platform’s language just says (to pro-lifers) you are no longer welcome,” Ms. Day said at the time. “This has been the general message pro-life Democrats are receiving across the country.”

Girl Scout Expose’

The following is from Deep Roots at Home blogger Alli. She writes a very lengthy expose’ regarding the Girl Scouts and how they are connected with Planned Parenthood especially with Girl Scout Cookie Season upon us. 

Revealing the background of the Girl Scouts is like peeling an onion–each layer exposes a different “truth”. Lots of troops DON’T follow this doctrine. Good for them! But a portion of their Girl Scout cookies sales still gets kicked to corporate, and they very clearly DO follow this doctrine.

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” ~Ephesians 5:11

Sales of Girl Scout cookies are under-way, and it is time to expose what the dollars that are earned from their sales really goes to. Please be aware that some of what is exposed here will shock and disturb you!

I’ve reached out to several women I know and trust who have been involved with or are currently involved with Girl Scouts of the USA. None of these women were aware of the master plan of the WAGGGS and GSUSA agenda.

Unlike Colorado’s new transgender troops, my relatively conservative mountain town has not yet experienced the symptoms of the liberal ideals espoused by the GSUSA. These women were certainly unaware that millions of dollars, including their daughter’s dues and Girl Scout cookies funds, are being paid to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to provide for their comprehensive sexual freedom education, abortion protection, and sexual rights for youth advocacy.

These mothers were not informed that their daughters were enrolled to promote “safe” sexual promiscuity, “guiltless” sexual immorality, “responsibility-free” pregnancy, “inconsequential” sexual exploration and murder of the innocent unborn.

Girl Scouts is an organization that promises to promote honesty and courage, responsibility and charity, yet the soul of the organization is Godless and vile. How can we continue support of an organization run and operated by abortionists and homosexuals intent on programming our youth to accept these atrocities as “rights?” How can we continue to encourage our children to emulate the values these pro-abortion, pro-LGBT adults actively fight to enforce? How can we offer our young girls to a society of role models who have made careers of promoting and fundraising the pro-choice, pro-homosexuality, anti-Christ movement?

As Christians, the truth is simple. We can’t.

We cannot endorse an organization that has such a wretched center. We cannot commend an institution that refuses to protect parental rights and the innocence of youth. We cannot be enticed by the promises of character-building as we clearly see the wolf’s eyes peering out through the feigned fleece.

FIGHT OR FLIGHT

“Train up a child the way the way she should go, and when she is older she will not depart from it.”  ~Proverbs 22:6

As Christians and as parents it is our responsibility to ensure that our children are in the world but not of it. We are to protect their innocence and promote Godly values. We need to protect the sanctity of life and the beauty of sexual morality. We need to either take a stand and fight for real purity and honest integrity within the Girl Scouts and its chosen affiliates or we need to remove our devotion and dedication to the Godless entity.

So are your Girl Scout cookie cravings under control? What will you allow to fill your spirit, mind, and body?

They enjoyed the sweet taste of wickedness, letting it melt under their tongue. ~Job 20:12
