This month our prayer focus is praying for women who are hurt by abortion. It’s a difficult topic, one that can bring out strong emotions and opinions, and it’s not something we can treat lightly. Life is precious. God created each one of us and has a plan for our life. Even in our mother’s womb we are far more than a mass of tissue. God gives each of us dignity and value: “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour.” (Psalm 8:3-5 ESV)
Let’s pray with compassion for those who find themselves with an unexpected pregnancy, for those who are facing a forced abortion and for those who are suffering the physical and emotional impacts of a past abortion. And let’s pray believing that the Lord is powerful!
TWR Women of Hope is committed to sharing the hope and healing of Christ. Below are several testimonies from our Women of Hope listeners who have been impacted by our teachings on the topic of abortion. Be encouraged, and keep praying!
From the Middle East “My dear sisters...I am so grateful for your Godly advice and your blessed programs. I remember last December when for the first time I heard your program in my neighbour’s house. During that time, I was about to abort my baby, but after speaking to you through skype, I decided to keep my baby and trust my life to the Lord Jesus as you suggested. Now I’m so happy for doing so. Praise the Lord. Many blessings.”
From Vietnam “For a long time the fact of abortion is considered as normal in my village and surrounding villages as well. They do no know that [abortion] does not please God, and they do not pray for His forgiveness. We learned a lot from the lesson on Women of Hope on abortion and God’s teachings. We listeners should reach out to those women who have many children and are pregnant to teach them God’s words and to understand their thinking so that they would know to do the right things and please God.”
From South America “I know that God is with me. After listening to [your program], I believe I can trust you, and you are people who can help me. I am a person who has committed a hellish sin…my soul cannot find peace. I have been trying to seek Jesus’ forgiveness…I know he has forgiven me, but I cannot forgive myself. I am like a lifeless person…my heart cannot find peace. Oh how I would love to go back in time and make right the things that I did wrong, but I can’t. I am a person without dreams, like a feather in the wind...I had an abortion…I keep looking for my baby…I want to correct my error and once again be pleasing in the eyes of God, but I don’t know how. Can you help me? I await your prompt reply.”
From the Philippines “I’m 18 years old...I’m happy as I listened to your program. It’s about children. I’m pregnant, and I decided to have an abortion. I felt guilty when I heard your program. Thank you and to your program too. Now I changed my mind. I’m so thankful because if it weren’t for your program, I might have killed my child. You’re my inspiration.”
