Pray for Abortion Providers

Abortion has claimed countless victims. The obvious victims are the millions of precious unborn babies who are denied the chance to live outside of the womb. Those related to the unborn are also victims, even if they don't realize it. Mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, and cousins--all their lives are affected by the loss of that unborn baby, a life that was meant to enrich their lives in ways known only to God. The whole of humanity is victimized by abortion because God had a plan for the lives of the aborted unborn babies that was meant to benefit the rest of us. What is good for one is good for all because we are all one body in Christ. For the same reason, what is harmful to one is harmful to all. God's plan is always best--Love being Who He is and what motivates all of His decisions. It is humans who interfere with His perfect plan and destroy the life of love, peace and joy that He desires for all of His children.

It is important to pray for abortion providers and for their conversion of heart. They are also victims of the cruel machinations of the prince of darkness and his accomplices in evil who seek the destruction of all of God's children, either before or after birth. None of us are exempt from his wicked plan to deceive all of us who have a chance at eternal happiness in heaven with our Creator. His envy and anger know no bounds as he seeks to destroy the purity of souls and lead them away from God and into the misery of eternal damnation along with him.

Many abortion providers have had a change of heart, thanks be to our merciful God, and have formed the Society of Centurions. They are in need of spiritual support in their journey to reconciliation, forgiveness and healing. According to Dr. Philip Ney in The Centurion's Pathway:

"The factors that changed their opinion on performing abortions, in the following order of frequency were:

evidence of the infant's humanity,

a spiritual experience,

personal distress,

evidence of the mother's distress,

scientific articles,

being accepted as a person,

a personal relationship with a pro-lifer,

pro-life pickets."
