Changing One Heart for Many

About a year ago, God laid something very important on Melinda’s (Traveling the Road Home) heart and it was to start a prayer team for the abortion issue facing our country. She gave it a name “Changing One Heart for Many” and asked willing participants to stand in the gap with her. She even, shall I say, dares us to make a commitment to pray for a period of time: 3 months, 6months, 9months, or 1 year. She made it pretty easy. It was her desire to come together as one to change the heart of one, President Obama.

As some of you may already know, she has asked me to take over the Blogger Pro Life Prayer Team. So, for the next 52 weeks we will be approaching God in prayer …“Changing One Heart for Many.” Through prayer, I realized the name that Melinda had chosen was PREFECT! In order to save the life of the unborn, the heart has to change in every human being who believes that an abortion should be a “choice.”

Here’s how you can get involved:

Leave a comment on this post stating your commitment to pray every Monday with your pledge time: 3 months, 6 months, 9 months or 1 year.

Every Monday I will have posted something of interest that has to do with abortion, whether it is a personal story, political, or one of the many other issues relating to how abortions affects us.  I will also have a Scripture, and end the post with a prayer

Now, if you’re visiting for the first time and you don’t know my story (God’s Story), you may want to check it on the left-hand side bar under “My Secret Sin.” I was one of those human beings who needed a heart change. If you have had an abortion, I want you to know you will find no condemnation here, but you will find Truth wrapped in grace and mercy. God has brought you here because He doesn’t want you to hurt and feel a shamed anymore, but what He does want from you is to trust Him with your pain. Will you do that? I hope so. If you need to talk or need prayer, click on ‘profile’ for email.

Ezekiel 36:26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.

Father God,
What a pledge it is that You have chosen us to stand againist the evil one. Many hearts are hard because they have placed their own deires before Yours. God, we ask for those who have turned their backs on You that their eyes would be opened, so they could see the lives being destroyed. Not only the lives of the unborn but their own. Cause them to ache with sadness in order to soften their heart.
Thank you Father God, for the many hearts that will be changed today and throughout the year in the precious name of Jesus...Amen.

Breaking News

If you’ve dropped by from Traveling the Road Home “Welcome” and to my blogging friends, I’ve got some breaking news. Melinda over at Traveling the Road Home, asked me about a month ago, if I would like to take over the Blogger Pro Life Prayer Team that she started last January. After much prayer, I knew that this prayer team needed to continue; too many lives have been, and are going to be destroyed by abortion.
For those that don't know my story (God's Story) you can read about it by going to the left sidebar starting with My Secret Sin. You will see that abortion has touched my family's life. That is why I am so excited and honored to be able to continue in this corporate prayer.

What is this prayer team all about? It’s about those of us who believe that life is precious to God and want to do something about it. All you have to do is turn on the TV or read your daily newspaper and to see the word “abortion”. As believers we know the most important thing WE can do is… pray!

Can anyone be apart of it? Yes, if you are reading this post, then you can pray.

Does it cost anything to join? Yes, your time…5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, you decided.

Every Monday, I will have posted something of interest that has to do with abortion, whether it is a personal story, political or one of the many other issues of how abortions affects us. I will also have a Scripture and end the post with a prayer. I hope that you will join me starting January 25, but until then stop over at Melinda's for visit.

Remember, prayer moves the heart of God!
