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.

Hi Tammy, I have been praying with Melinda for a year and would love to continue with you for another year.

Will you be changing the code on the grab button? Would like to update the one on my blog.

Hi Tammy:
I would love to continue to pray with you for all those who are hurt because of abortion and that the hearts and minds of our leaders and people of America will be changed.
Be Blessed, Debrah

As I read this Scripture, I realize that there still are some remnants of stoney and stubborn within my heart. I don't ever expect them, they simply show up from time to time. In those times, I am reminded of my complete and desperate need of God's transforming work in me.

I am a sinner saved by a King; My need is as great as anyone's. Sin isn't categorized in God's eyes. All sin separates us from him, so even though I don't have abortion in my background, I have sin there...

and that makes us kindred spirits, sister.

We're walking this journey of grace together. I count it a privilege to walk it with you.


Deborah Ann said...

I will join you in prayer. May God richly bless you and your ministry in this New Year...

Darlene said...

Tammy, it is with a healed and humble heart that I join you and this prayer team. May God's grace and His Truth shine upon and through you as you grasp our hands in prayer.

Healing Hearts, Renewing Minds.

You already know where I stand dear Sister and praying daily. I'm thankful to be walking with you for Christ-centered change for the government, the nation and all people especially for the sake of our unborn. I love you much.
