Prayer for woman considering an abortion
« on: October 06, 2008, 12:37:54 AM »
An acquaintance of mine is pregnant and has decided she is going to have an abortion. She hasn't actually gone through with it yet. Pray that God may yet open her heart and mind to the truth of what she plans to do.


Lord have mercy.

This must truly be a scary and difficult time for this young woman. 

Lord Jesus Christ, please touch the heart of this young woman.  Please give her strength, courage, and wisdom during this time in her life.  Please work through her friends and family that another decision will be made. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.  Lord, have mercy...

Lord have mercy.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
