I Prayed have prayed
Father, rescue the unborn in America! May all see these innocents as You do; change hearts on this topic.

In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, the Guttmacher Institute reported a significant increase in the number and rate of abortions in the United States in 2023. These statistics are deeply troubling and underscore the urgent need for a renewed commitment to the sanctity of life.

The report estimates that there were 1,026,690 abortions in the formal U.S. health care system in 2023, a rate of 15.7 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age. This represents a 10% increase from 2020. Every state that had not outlawed abortion saw an increase in the number of abortions performed. The sharpest increases were seen in states bordering those in which abortion is banned, with a 37% increase from 2020 to 2023.

These numbers are staggering, but they likely underestimate the issue’s true scale. The report includes only abortions obtained within the formal U.S. health care system — excluding those obtained through underground national and international networks.

Medication abortions, which involve a two-drug regimen that ends the life of the unborn child, accounted for 63% of all abortions in the U.S. in 2023, up from 53% in 2020. Approximately 642,700 unborn babies were killed through medication abortions within the health care system.

The Supreme Court will soon hear oral arguments in a case that could significantly impact how mifepristone, one of the drugs used in medication abortions, is used in this country. This case pertains to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s rolling back safety restrictions for mifepristone.

The Biden administration has promoted medication abortions, and in January of 2023, the FDA allowed retail pharmacies to dispense abortion pills. Several Democrat governors have stockpiled abortion pills while enacting shield laws that protect health care providers who prescribe mifepristone to women and girls in states with laws protecting the unborn.

We must keep speaking out against these policies and work toward a culture that values and protects every human life. We must continue to pray for an end to abortion and for the healing of all those harmed by it.

Father have mercy on our Nation. Our leaders are lost and many have surrendered to Satan and his decrees leaving us defenseless except for Your word and way. Father I choose You and Your love and life and peace and joy and blessings! Please forgive our Nation and deliver us from evil people and their doctrines. Save us and our children. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Speak to our leaders.Amen.

Heavenly Father I speak against the terrible evil of abortion and rebuke it in Jesus Name. May the people who take this so lightly somehow realize the gravity of it all. The unborn baby is a viable life and not some way or other just tissue of some sort. The only reason it doesn’t look like a baby is that it is a matter of time and development. Praying for eyes to be opened and ears to hear the truth. Praying for hearts 💕 that care. Matthew 19:14 “ But Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of Heaven. “

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. Mark 13:31

Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and see the Lord’s salvation He will provide for you today; for the Egyptians you see today, you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you must be quiet. Exodus 14:13-14
The Lord is a warrior; Yahweh is His name. Exodus 15:3
Ani Adonoi Rofecha, I am Yahweh who heals you. Exodus 15:26

Dear Lord and God, I believe in Your Word. Only You can call light out of darkness. Only You can silence a riotous sea with a command, “Quiet! Be still!” Nothing in creation can stand against Your Word. I pray we will not fear this death stronghold. I pray we will continue to see Your provision until this wicked industry is destroyed completely. Please fight for the unborn. You are a warrior, Yahweh is Your Name. You are Ani Adonoi Rofecha, God who Heals. You are Redeemer and Savior who only needs to speak a word to change hearts and heal Your people here in America and all over the world. Show the world the horror of abortion. I pray right now, You will speak a word into the hearts of every woman contemplating the end of life. I ask this and so much more in the Name of Jesus Christ who was kept safe in Mary’s womb. Amen

We need to teach a culture of joy in purity, joy in God given uniqueness, , responsibility and position beyond animal urges. Our focus needs to be on those who have relations out of marriage, thus precious but unwanted babies are. victims of selfish senseless murder. Our culture and churches and families and schools have acceoted and permitted this ‘no fault ‘ no accountability behavior . resulting in killing if the unborn. Perhaps itt accelerated when ‘no fault’ divirce became a norm in the 60s.
Praise God fir families schools, and yes, Christian colleges and universities who are nurturing and teaching and formng children and young adults to value their God given potential and to respet God given life!!!!
