PLEASE … include these people in your prayers today. If believers bombard heaven, things can change!
Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
We pray for those in the news and for those who need the love of Jesus in their hearts. If there is anyone you feel compelled to pray for in this blog, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forbes magazine calls her the “Millionaire Abortionist.” Merle Hoffman’s clinic in Brooklyn, New York conducts 10,000 abortions annually.
She certainly doesn’t apologize for it; in fact, she recently called a group of pro-life protesters outside her clinic the “American Taliban,” terrorists “who need to be bridled.” Watch this video:
Ms. Harmon has acknowledged that abortion gives women “power and the responsibility of taking life” so that women can control their own lives. In her book, The Life and Times of the Woman Who Brought Abortion from the Back Alley to the Boardroom, Harmon writes: The idea of abortion was a valve, an opening, a way to breathe. There was no question of whether I would have one. … The act of abortion positions women at their most powerful. …”
That type of thinking comes only from the pit of hell, and we as believers must rebuke it and pray against it with every fiber of our being.
The Liberty Counsel, in a fight against them in a New York court, has presented evidence that their clients in no way have broken the law in their efforts to educate women who seek abortion on just what the entire process entails. Liberty Counsel Founder Mat Staver says the New York case is a clear “effort to bully pro-life citizens into silence.”
The Bible commands us to pray for our enemies. It COMMANDS believers to do so. I urge you to pray for Hoffman’s salvation and her heart. Therefore:
“Lord, we realize this is pure evil and that you hate what is evil. We pray the prayer that Paul set down in Ephesians 6:10-18 that says, “Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your waist girded with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, having your feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace, and above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the fiery arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit always with all kinds of prayer and supplication. To that end be alert with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”
Merle Hoffman has been fighting most of her life for what she terms as “women’s rights.” She’s been fighting against the light of God’s Word with efforts that can only come from Satan himself. We pray for her salvation. We pray for her heart to be transformed. But we know, Lord, that only You can do those things. NOTHING, NOTHING is impossible with you. We believe it and receive it in the name of Jesus. We receive her salvation and transformation and believe that if her heart changes by the power of the Holy Spirit, then it can influence the change of millions of other hearts who have similar views. Imagine Ms. Hoffman screaming “Jesus saves” instead of advocating for women’s rights.
Lord, put down this evil once and for all, and transform the hearts of those who think this way. More than 60 million babies have died. Only one was more than it should have been. We draw upon your might, your power, your grace and your mercy to see your justice done. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, Amen.”
“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.” (1 Cor. 13:6)
“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.” (1 John 5:19)
