I Prayed have prayed
Heavenly Father, we pray that many, many intercessors will speak up for life today! Change hearts in our nation to value and protect every life.

Today, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) will file a discharge petition for the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act during that day’s first vote series. Upon being signed by a majority of members of the House, the discharge petition will force a vote on the Born Alive Act on the House Floor.

“As Speaker Pelosi refuses to allow a vote on this legislation to defend and protect innocent life, we are taking matters into our own hands. This effort is not just about going on the record, it’s about taking concrete action to end infanticide,” said Whip Scalise. “Legislation to protect babies born alive during an abortion is supported by over seventy percent of voters of all parties, including Democrats and independents. Rep. Ann Wagner’s Born Alive Act is a truly bipartisan bill that deserves a vote on the House floor. The American people deserve to know where their representatives stand on this issue of life or death.”

“This discharge petition is a critical step in forcing Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats to bring HR 962, the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act, to a vote,” said Rep. Wagner. “As radical states and legislators have begun promoting not just late term abortions but infanticide, it is more important than ever that we come together to protect America’s women and children with lifesaving medical care during the moments they cannot protect themselves.”

Background on the Discharge Petition
With all 197 Republicans signing, 21 Democrat signatures are also needed to discharge the Born Alive Act.
Democrat Representatives Henry Cuellar (D-Tex.), Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) have already co-sponsored the underlying bill.
Discharge petitions do not expire during the 116th Congress.
Background on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:
Requires that health care practitioners who are present at the live birth exercise skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child—the same degree of care that would be offered to any other child born prematurely the same gestational age. After those efforts, the health care workers must transport and admit the child to a hospital.
Requires health care practitioners and hospital employees to report violations to law enforcement authorities, reducing the number of born-alive abortions that go unreported.
Penalizes the intentional killing of a born-alive child through fines or up to 5 years imprisonment.
Gives the mother of the abortion survivor a civil cause of action and protection from prosecution, recognizing that women are the second victims of abortion and promoting the dignity of motherhood.

God our Father, time and again OT-NT we look to your deliverance. May the fear of You, be real to believer or not, & move as: “1-Samuel 14:15 Terror struck the Philistines(hell itself) in the camp, in the field, and among all the people. Even those in the outposts and raiding parties trembled. Indeed, the earth quaked and panic spread from God.” cause hearts to tremble until they do right.

Equally list/lead/direct/where/how ‘I’ can assist, for these unwanted babes(deplorables). I saw FL had a home-community, volunteers=retired folks assisted single parents; Or ‘Sarah Bowling’s “Saving Moses” featured recently->700Club-CBN’ Operation Blessing.

A baby that has survived an abortion and free from the mother is now a United States citizen born in the United States and has the right for jury and freedoms of a citizen. Since the baby is not old enough to have a voice an attorney should be appointed to speak for the baby. It is great to live in a country that most people value life even if a few do not. Land of the free.

Lord God, we pray that the 18 other Democrats will come forward to force this bill past Pelosi’s block. Lord God, you adore the little children, and we ask that you would help us protect them with this bill. We pray that the “unplanned” movie opens the eyes of the young, especially, to the horror’s of abortion. We pray the infantacide bills open the eyes of the Dems to the wrong of late term abortion. We ask that all heartbeat bills pass in their respective states. Lord God, forgive us for all the unborn who have been killed because their arrival was considered a crisis. Please reverse this great wrong Lord, we beseech you. In Jesus name, Amen

Dear Father in Heaven,

Come to the aid of your children in the womb. Their blood cries out to You for vindication and justice. Oh Lord if one can put a thousand to flight how many more can hundreds with one voice put ten thousand upon ten thousand to flight. May the fear of the Lord fall upon those obstructionists who would block righteousness once more. May God arise in the House of Representatives and His enemies scattered and may the sword of the Lord cut off the wicked schemes of the enemy. We need you Lord in our Congress and we ask Oh Holy One to see Your glory, Your Presence, Your Holiness to once again shine in the halls of our government. In Jesus Mighty Name! Amen

I thank you that this is an issue being directed to the house floor and forced to a vote, I pray our legislators look beyond themselves to see the value of life and protect it. Abortion is not birth control, and it becomes premeditated murder when allowed to kill babies outside the womb or in late stages of pregnancy. I pray in full support to see that these babies are protected and that any thing that comes against the lives of these babies be defeated, In the name of the Father,Son, and Holy Spirit…

Lord I pray for every child born alive will have the right to life, I pray that they will fulfill the purposes you have ordained for them, that you will reach millions for the kingdom through them, in Jesus name.

    Lord we all agree from our prayer group that this be fulfilled. We thank you for divine protection over every child in the womb. They are your creation. And we stop the enemy from every plot, plan and scheme he has to destroy them. We declare war against this enemy of destruction in your name. And we call on Your Blood Jesus to put a hedge of protection around your unborn.
    And amen to that…so be it.

Lord Jesus, we worship and praise you that you have not left us alone in this world but have given to us your Holy Spirit who takes of what is yours and discloses it to us that we might be obedient to the will of the Father.

Let your light shine out today in the House of Representatives through the hearts of those who have trusted you, that eyes that have been closed by the deception and darkness of the enemy of our soul would be opened.

We pray that in this day in the House of Representatives, the light of the Glory of Your Kingdom would push back the dominion of Satan and many would come to their senses to vote for this resolution and choose to walk out of the darkness that has been covering their hearts and minds.

In your name Jesus we pray, Amen

Lord, my prayer is that my letter to Representative Rouda touches his heart and mind through the power of the Holy Spirit and that he joins others who will not tolerate the taking of innocent life for convenience and profit.
“Dear Representative Rouda, I am writing you about H.R. 962, a bill that requires babies surviving an abortion to be provided the medical care any other baby would receive. Please vote to save the lives of these little children who obviously want to live. People say that passing this bill is just the first step in eroding a woman’s right to choice and I agree with that. In fact, I hope for abortion to be recognized as infanticide. The reality of a woman’s body is that she can get pregnant and that she is then responsible for another’s life. I think we should deal with that reality and understand that killing a fetus is not the responsible choice.
I didn’t see abortion as a choice for issues of concern, so perhaps it is not an issue that you expect your constituents to care about. You are in a seat long held by a Republican in conservative Orange County where there are churches everywhere. I think it is reasonable to expect that on the whole representing your constituents in this case means passing H.R. 962. I urge you to pass HR 962. Thank you.”

“So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.”
(Matthew 18:14) I pray that You will make Your Will known and lead the House of Representatives to pass HR 962 and that their hearts of stone be turned to flesh on the issue of abortion. Amen.

    Amen! And very well written!

    Thank you for such a well articulated prayer. I pray that the LORD God, Lord Jesus, and Holy Spirit would move in the hearts of all people to repent over what our country has allowed for so long. Thank You Jesus for paying the penalty for all of the sins of murder called abortion. Please open the eyes of the hearts of all Americans and bring about change in our society. Amen

Thank you O Father, your sovereignty protects us and promotes your will in the affairs of man. You lead your prayer warriors to push
back against wickedness through confession, praise and petition. Then leaders push back in the temporal realm. Prayer and praise precede victory, as it is written: not by might, not by power, but
by my Spirit, saith the Lord. Bless this discharge petition and the members who fight for it, O Holy One.
