Scripture: For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb--- Psalms 139:13
Devotional: God’s word tells us that the work in the womb is His. That work of creating a human life began at the moment of conception. he prophet Jeremiah tells us in Jeremiah 1:4-5:

Determining when human life begins is and should be above any government leader’s pay grade. God has reserved some decisions for Himself. No where in His Holy Word has He delegated that authority to any government or national leader.
“We the People”do not need for our President to answer that difficult question for us, nor do we ourselves need to resolve the difficult question of when life begins, because God has already done that for us. God’s word clearly defines the work in the womb His. Abortion disrupts the work of God in the womb.
Prayer: Father, help us today as individuals and as a nation to recognize that human life is your creation. Bring conviction and repentance to the leaders that have allowed this horrible act of abortion to be declared “a woman’s right”, and a necessary part of women’s health care. Bring conviction and repentance to those of us that have remained silent while this holocaust continues in our nation. Give us eyes that see, ears that hear, and courage to speak out against this crime against our most defenseless human beings and against you. May we turn to you for the forgiveness and healing that only you can give. In the name of your precious Son, Jesus, we ask these things, always. Amen.
