Tuesday prayer: For enlightenment

In light of yesterday's musing, pray that Christians everywhere will continue to develop a biblical understanding of the sanctity of human life and godly ways of expressing it.

I've found that a "way in" to this huge topic is to study related biblical themes:

  • Look at what the Bible says about violence and the destiny of violent people. There are many references found in Proverbs.
  • Note what God's word says about injustice and how often it's tied to both the shedding of innocent blood and the neglect of widows and orphans.
In addition, our website lists numerous references that apply to any discussion about abortion. See What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?

This is our prayer for you:

We . . . ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.
