Standing In The Gap For The Sin Of Abortion
Sometimes we are so blind that we do not see our sin as God sees it. We can be grateful that He takes time before dealing with a nation to point out our sin and show us the way of repentance. Jesus is the answer to a nations sin issues and when we repent of our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. The Lord is addressing the sin of abortion in the United States of America as we have heard tonight on a call to fast and pray sent out by Lou Engle of The Call.
I was painfully aware that our own nation is not exempt of this sin and also needs to come to a place of repentance and that laws need to be speedily changed to protect the unborn lives that are so dependent on the decisions we make. The laws we make do affect the generation to come and those thereafter and the sins of the fathers are visited on the children to third and fourth generation and some sins even to the tenth generation. What are we doing about our sin? What are we doing as the body of Christ in prayer and intercession? Are we calling on the Lord and repenting for the lives of those whose blood has been shed and like Abel's blood is now crying up from the ground? God sees it all! He knows it all and nothing is hidden that will not be revealed.
We want our nation spared the natural disasters and yet do we deserve that our nation be spared? This is a soul searching question but one that needs to be asked. Are we asking the Lord to also change the hearts of those that are pondering abortions in the near future? Even this next week abortions are scheduled and yet we forget and these lives hang in the balance. Could we by our prayer change the hearts of many of these mothers? Can we change the heart of a nation through prayer, fasting and intercession? Yes we can!!! We have been called for such a time as this to make a difference, in the lives of others. Do you believe the Lord wants to use you to pray, stand in the gap and repent of the sin of abortion in our land?
The unborn are crying out as they are taken to the slaughter. Doctors that perform these abortions are murdering children. Mothers and Fathers who have abortions are killing their children and so many later live with deep regret troubling them each and every day of their lives. I know of one woman who suffered mental illness because of the abortion she had in her early life.
Let the Lord tenderize your heart to the cry of the unborn. Let Him stir you to stand in the gap. Let Him allow you to see sin as sin and not call it otherwise. The Lord saw the blood of Abel crying out and He sees the blood of each and every child that has been shed. Abortion breaks the commandment of the Lord that says, you shall not kill. In having an abortion you are committing murder.
Father God will most surely forgive you for having had an abortion and cover this sin in His precious blood. He is a loving and forgiving God. He is merciful to those that repent. Let us also repent of not carrying this burden and passing it off for others to take care of. Let us pray for our leaders that they hear the Lord and have their eyes opened to see. Let us cry out and spare not that the fear of God and a spirit of repentance come upon the people of our land and see if the Lord will again show our nations favor.
Now is the time to repent of our sin! Now is the time to hear Him! Now is the time to not delay but come quickly to Him in repentance! Now is the time for tomorrow may be too late! Now is the time to hear the voice of the Lord as He is speaking to many in the nations. God is raising up youth with a standard. He is raising up prophetic voices among our youth today that will go far beyond that which we have done for the Lord and will walk fearlessly speaking the whole counsel of God. Let us pray for these youth that God will raise them up with His fire in their bones and that they will speak without fear of man. Let us pray everywhere without doubting what the Lord will do for a nation that walks in repentance and fear of the Lord. Let us watch and pray, and repent of our sin. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
