The ministers and elders of Perry Christian spend time in prayer each month both at our meetings and privately using the weekly prayer requests submitted and other items/topics that w e have identified. We are now inviting the congregation to join with us each month to focus prayer on one of these items/topics.
In January of 1973, the United States Supreme Court ruled in the case of Roe v Wade overturning rulings in 40 states that made abortion illegal. The justices voted 7 -2 in favor of legalizing abortion citing a woman’s right to privacy and that an unborn child is not a “person” within the meaning of the Constitution.
Really? Do you suppose God consults man’s constitutions to determine what life is? The prophet Jeremiah wrote the following long before our Constitution was penned; Now the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jer 1:4-5 ESV). God knows His plans for us before we are born. Join with the elders in January as we pray that all unborn children are given a right to life and for our families that we may get back to God’s design.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made... (Psalm 139:13-14 ESV).
