The author brings up a good point and so did my friend Jessica who commented on my last post. It is time to stop feeling sad and distressed and to get active for the pro-life cause in whatever way we can...prayer, fasting, grassroots efforts.
Chins up, everyone! If you really believe innocent lives are at stake, there’s no time for feeling sorry for ourselves --it’s not about us, right? Make this the year you acquire a deep prayer life. Become holy so that you radiate Christ wherever you are, no matter what you’re doing: He’s irresistible, and he’s the key to conversion. Keep doing the pro-life work you’re doing. Think of ways to work for the culture of life even if FOCA passes. Commit yourself to a daily regimen of prayer and sacrifice for the cause of respect for life. Go sign that anti-FOCA petition Danielle mentions below if you haven’t.
I have always "said" I'm pro-life and believe in the cause but what actual work have I done to promote it? For those of you who go to church with me, we have a pro-life group that meets every first Saturday morning of the month. I had every intention of being there last weekend but a little thing called pneumonia knocked me off of my feet! However, I have signed the FOCA petition, am promoting it on my Facebook, and intend to try to do anything else I can to bring awareness to this terrible piece of legislation that may be coming up.
