I Prayed have prayed
Father, we continue to pray for pregnancy centers across the nation. Guard them, Lord, and help them provide for women in this crucial time.

While American Christians are overwhelmed by the number of international and spiritual battles they face, one of the most sinister, revenge-fueled attacks is getting little attention.

Have you taken your place on the wall?

 

In light of the overturn of Roe v. Wade, pro-life pregnancy centers are under attack. In fact, they are receiving a large part of the anger and pro-abortion animus in our nation.

Insider Intercessory Information

Here in Washington, D.C., we saw a pregnancy crisis center vandalized. This grabbed national attention, but that center was not the only victim.

Initially, the attacks on these pregnancy centers were only physical. Now, they have become political as well. Earlier this month, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called for a “crackdown” on pro-life pregnancy centers in the aftermath of the overturn of Roe v. Wade.

The senator called for “protecting patients from the deceptive practices of some “so-called crisis pregnancy centers,” and she has allies in the Senate. She is now advocating for legislation to allow the federal government to “collect penalties” against these centers.

For me, this is personal.

I was born to a single mother. She became pregnant at age 18 and was urged to have an abortion. She didn’t, and today I am here. It is incredible to think that some would seek to shut down the kind of people who would have offered help to brave women like my mother, women who chose to do the right thing even when it was hard.

Those women need our support, our generosity, and our prayers, and they deserve our respect. They need the care and support offered by the volunteers at these centers. But right now, they are caught in the crossfire of a frustrated pro-choice movement in search of a target.

In view of the Roe v. Wade overturn, the anger within the pro-choice movement is no surprise, but their choice of target is hard to stomach.

Let’s rally together for the sake of millions of young mothers who need support in their pregnancy.

With this in mind, let us pray:

-Father, we ask that You would protect pro-life pregnancy centers from all attacks, physical, spiritual and political. Put a hedge of protection around them and encourage the hearts of their people.

-Lord, give us boldness to continue to speak out on behalf of these centers, as well as on the issue of abortion. Keep us from cowardice in the face of intimidation.

-Father, we ask that You would reveal yourself as Comforter, Provider, and Protector for these pregnant women fearful of how they will be able to raise a child. Put people in their lives to help them and to give them courage to do the right thing, and grant grace to the Church to be there for them in their time of need.

Verses to press into as you pray on this issue:

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world (James 1:27).

“If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand” (Ezekiel 3:18).

I am praying that my local Pregnancy center comes against internet attacks which have increased after Roe.

I completely agree with Mr. Harper on this issue and what is needed. But I will step out a bit farther in the practical side of what “additionally” has also become necessary. Security and in many places, armed security. Since most prolife centers operate on shoestring budgets, those that are willing to volunteer should be trained in the use of firearms or other protective resources and weapons. Those who volunteer, in certain areas, will most likely have to be certified and permitted. They will also have to possibly clear it with local ordinances and officials. Be prepared and do the homework and find out exactly all that is needed. Determine what kind of security can be used while the process of legalities is being reviewed. DON’T take no for an answer. Be prepared, with examples, why it’s needed.
It’s especially important to have security coverage during the midnight hours (10pm – 7am) when the cowards mainly do their damage. I highly recommend use of the Byrna system, since it is a self defense system that is not lethal. It is legal in all 50 states.
We cannot look the other way and think that the “enemy Satan” is going to change tactics. Spiritual preparation is absolutely essential in this but please do not leave out the practical physical prep that has become critical for protection.

Lord, How deep is sin that your people are attacked for standing up for You and the abundant life You provide. The enemy is enraged that women and men stand up to his stealing, killing and destroying lives in the womb, generations into the future, the hopes of parents and grandparents. Thought the enemy stalks about the cities and towns like a roaring lion, he is not a lion. He only imitates one. It is the Lion of Judah that rules the whole earth!

Thank you for doing this. We have a pregnancy center here in Chico, CA, please pray for the staff and women who are and will come to them for help and and finances needed to continue God’s will which is against murder in any form. God is our creator and doesn’t make mistakes. No child conceived in the womb of a women through sexual contact is a mistake. God always brings something good out of every situation.

“As intercessors how many are willing to take the floor before Almighty God for America and the world in this hour of “deep darkness” (Isaiah 60)? May God GRIP our hearts.”

I truly believe we are facing a Evil , degrading darkness of such proportions from all sides that it is almost too much to stay on top of them. Abortions, Woke churches, Fake Administration, Election Fraud, administration lies upon lies, money printed and sent to whom? And where?, Cities destroyed, school transgender, CRT, school boards sounding like a house of reprobates, sex trafficking, borders of drugs, killings, cartel getting paid for all of the push on nations flocking America borders, virus- vaccine that helped killed over more deaths than the virus, inside trading among congress, Senators other officials, New W.O, taxes sky high to be paid by the people – the Fraud administration’s keeps printing more money to break America: I could write about a hundred items they are using to destroy America : oh I forgot about Mar-A-Lago, and the jealousy that eats out at the Democrats that they are so evil they hate a man DJT because they are not as great as He is, he loves America and God. All of these things that has been shoved down our throats by theWoke, Leftist agenda which they have LOST power and will keep losing because!! America has found prayer in their daily lives, their eyes are being open finally, people getting involved, complacency has left most people, parents concerned about schools, I could go on forever 😊 There is one way to come aware follow a Tried, True Christian TV program, the tours that are going from state to state to get the truth out, (To explain where And what we need to do as American People is To follow Gods Keys to take care of all of this) and that is to get inside of scriptures that He- God tells us to do: Psalms 91- 1- thru 16 is a daily dose we need- Psalms 62, Psalms: 25, Psalms 23, Psalms 21, Isaiah 45, Exodus – all chapters -is what we are in the middle of at present, Isaiah 47, 48, especially Isaiah 48:15; after reading these scriptures praying and listening to the prophetic words I was ashamed of my self for not understanding what God was saying, I do now! It’s embedded in my soul, and mind. I was a lot like a lot of you I prayed with a Intercessor prayer group, went to church, worked 45 hrs. A week, took care of a home, family did many things that were all good but it never felt like enough. When the 2020 election was stolen I heard God speak saying I want you to put me (First) so I started on A journey listening and guiding me these last 2 years. Still have not found a church that is Spirit Filled since we made a move from Ky. To – – 2019. But I am involved faithfully in 2 different churches on line. The importance of this journey is to do what God shows you to do and tells you. So many people either forgot or did not understand that God has chosen many vessels that you might not approve of but he knows inside of peoples heart. Isaiah- 48: 1 thru 15. God is going to fit all of these scriptures together and the picture will be drawn so clearly. What a mess that has been made when we put God in a closet and now expect Him to get us out of the mess. Example: Psalms 91- I put my name in the words in the Bible use all the scriptures as a prayer. Anyone can do that it is simple to do. I let my Pleasure of book reading go except my new Christian novels that can help me to see things clearer, TV programs I used to watch faithfully now I do not watch, there are other things also. I try each day to Put God first and if I do not get done what I think is important I do late at night. Trying to be faithful and still enjoying the journey. I sometimes get real excited about such joy that is in my life and all The extra I have learned about how God is really Good and Faithful. There is so much more we can be doing, I refuse to live in a corrupt, controlled deep state of darkness, I have great grandchildren to be concerned about and others. No excuses but I did not realize the Huge Abortion Crisis or the Deep state Agenda in schools etc. I was one to not listen to news or read papers or magazines. I tried to stay from the negativity. I have repented over that. I just know my story is a lot like many others, but I corrected mine. I pray for the words of God to fill everyone’s minds and hearts that even though they do, sometimes they may feel a urge to do more and have that urgency in their spirits to do more for God’s America/ Nations and to bring our list of families/ friends into Gods family.
Hopefully this is taken with a caring spirit, this is the road that God took me on tonight. 202Won so let’s prepare for 202free in Gods wonderful presence. Be Blessed God has this-with us being United with each other.

Evil shows itself not only in the policies of death, in this case, death of the unborn, but also when it attempts to destroy any organization or person which might get in its way and check the ongoing progress of its swath of death.

Lord, please continue to guide and defend those who seek to grow in You and also protect Your most vulnerable, the unborn.

What really needs to be done is to stop applauding immoral conduct and to restore sex to its only proper context, between a legitimately married man and woman. The invaluable role of husbands and fathers must be revived and promoted. The nuclear family is how the Lord intends for children to be nurtured and reared into solid, productive citizens.

These things are going on because in 2020 we all stood idly by while the democrats rioted in our cities, and tore up our property and businesses! They terrorized many, and destroyed statues and monuments that our tax dollars paid for! They demoralized our police forces while people that were ELECTED to office to do the WILL OF THE PEOPLE told the police to “stand down” and allow the rioters free reign! NOT AGAIN! NOT AGAIN! FATHER GOD please prepare us to fight! Show us what to do and how to do it! Order our steps and direct our path and lead us into battle in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Put YOUR WORDS in our mouths and strengthen us with YOUR Power and Might in our inner man! Speak clearly to us daily that “here is the way, walk ye in it!” Protect the pregnancy centers and the workers all across America in the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! Amen!

Deception! Wow Not A Clinic! Not an abortion clinic! That is real obvious. Make a choice – choose life for your baby or someone else’s baby.

These women need to see the torn apart bodies of unborn babies and to know how these body parts are being used. I pray that somehow God would open their eyes, ears, minds and spirits to what they are advocating for; the pain inflected on these babies. This is murder plain and simple. Give women who get pregnant courage to save their children and protect them from those who murder babies for profit. Black women are being targeted to keep their race low. These abortionist are prejudiced against women of color.

I pray Psalm 2 that the Lord would have those who seek to do damage to these centers in derision. That they cannot accomplish their plans. May the fear of the Lord come upon them and Gods angels confront them and surround these centers. May Gods word be presented to all these who are seduced by doctrines of demons, may they come to the knowledge of the truth, repent and be reconciled to the Lord. May the Lord be glorified!

They are blind. The god of this age has blinded them. They need Jesus. May God save their souls. May God blind them like He blinded Saul if He must. May God thwart every harm they try to inflict on the centers who actually help women, men, and children.
