their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and

REFLECTION by Carmen Pate, 40 Days for Life
Not unlike God's chosen people of Israel, we must
humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from
our wicked ways, if we expect God to hear from
heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land. The need
for repentance has not been greater since the Supreme
Court decision of Roe vs. Wade in 1973.
The number one cause of death in America is the
needless sacrifice of our children at the altar of
convenience called abortion. Conservative estimates
put the number of deaths at nearly 48 million.
And lest we think this is an issue outside the church
walls, 43 percent of women obtaining abortions
identify themselves as Protestant, and 27 percent
identify themselves as Catholic. One in four women
has at least one abortion by the age of 45 -- both

church, as God's people, in unity, seek His
Heavenly Father, we have turned our backs on you and

our days. But we come to you in brokenness and
repentance over our sin.
We cry out for Your mercy and ask you to remove the
scourge of abortion from our land.
Use us as your vessels, Lord, to bring the light of
Your Truth to our nation once again. Because of
Christ we pray, Amen.
