Scripture: It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” (Luke 1:17)
Devotional: The policy of abortion on demand has hardened the hearts of many men toward their children. These policies allow for irresponsible males to be freed from the responsibility that goes along with fathering children. Men are told by politicians to “sit down and shut up” about abortion because it is not their issue. I haven’t yet read any claims of success in creating another human without both male and female participating even though our law makers continue to spend us deeper into debt by wasting our tax money on the cloning of humans. God gave us a perfect plan for reproducing humans. You can’t improve on perfection.
The abortion industry, with the help of our legal system, has castrated males by denying them their God given right to protect and provide for their children as God intended for them to do. However, when it comes to paying for abortions, the man’s money is not only welcomed, it is demanded! All Americans are now expected to “sit down and shut up” about our taxes being used to fund abortion. The only “choice” being offered is the “choice” of the abortion industry.
God has set before us the choice of life or death, but our government is slowly taking away our right to choose life.
Prayer: Father today I pray for the millions of men who have been denied fatherhood by the evil of abortion. I pray that they would turn to you for the healing touch that only your blessed Holy Spirit can bring. I pray that you would heal their wounds and strengthen them with a determination to stand up against this evil that continues to threaten future generations of our sons and daughters. I thank you for those men that value their role as husbands and fathers and are willing to take a stand to protect women and children of our nation. Children need both fathers and mothers that fear the Lord. Our nation is in desperate need of male leadership that understands their God given role in the family. I pray that you would turn the hearts of our leaders back to you and that you would continue to turn the hearts of fathers back to the children. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
