How would you feel if you found out AFTER THE FACT that your child's school had facilitated her getting an abortion?
***THE LIVEPRAYER CHURCH!!! Haven't been to church yet this week? Join me for this week's service at the LivePrayer Church.

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, USE ME in these perilous, last days, as a messenger of Your hope in Jesus. Father, make me aware of the people You have put in my life each day, many who will die and burn in hell for all eternity for rejecting Christ, and use me as a vessel of Your love and hope. I thank You for sending Jesus to die for my sins that I might know the free gift of everlasting life, and I ask today that You help me to lead others to that wonderful eternal relationship with Christ. For it is in HIS name I pray...AMEN!
Why is a school helping a 15-year-old CHILD get an abortion? A true story out of Seattle, Washington should horrify all parents. A 15-year-old girl went to the school's clinic and took a pregnancy test. The test came back positive and the school helped facilitate this young girl to take a cab to an abortion clinic during school hours, get an abortion, and return before the end of the school day. ALL OF THIS HAPPENED WITHOUT ANYONE NOTIFYING THE 15-YEAR-OLD CHILD'S PARENTS!!!
For all of you parents, how would you feel if you found out AFTER THE FACT that your child's school had facilitated her getting an abortion?
Listen, I am not going for a second lessen the responsibility of the young girl involved or her parents. It is critical that young boys and girls understand that sex is not a game and killing babies is murder! Both the girl and her parents must be held accountable for their actions, however, there is simply no excuse for a school to be involved in helping a child kill a baby without any notification of the parents. That is simply not acceptable!
The culture of death is hanging over this nation like a black cloud! God created man never to die. Physical and spiritual death were never part of God's plan for man. However, it was man, exercising his God-given free will that introduced both forms of death into the human experience. Death is from the pits of hell itself, while life is from God. Satan comes to KILL, steal, and destroy and is synonymous with death. It is through faith in Jesus Christ that man is promised everlasting life and conquers death. Christ came to give life and life abundantly and He is synonymous with life.
Sadly, this has become a nation that has embraced, even glorifies death. Because we have separated ourselves so far from God, we no longer value life. Life is no longer viewed as special or treated as sacred. Many people ask me why I talk about abortion so often and the fact we slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies in this nation every 24 hours. It is because people have become numb and desensitized to death!
I'll prove it to you. Let me ask you a very legitimate question. Answer honestly. Did you think at all today about the FACT that in the past 24 hours, apx 4,000 innocent babies were slaughtered in this nation? Did you?
We have simply come to live with the fact that we practice legalized infanticide and we don't even give it a second thought. People die in floods, fires, car wrecks hurricanes, tornadoes and we mourn. 3,000 innocent lives were lost on 9/11 and we consider that the greatest act of terror on our soil. Yet we don't even give a second thought to the fact that every 24 hours, another 4,000 innocent lives are destroyed! What kind of sick and perverted nation allows such a thing to happen?
We read in the Bible how Herod, after the birth of Jesus, sent his men to kill every baby under the age of two years. They literally ripped babies out of the arms of the mothers and killed them on the spot. Even though I have read that passage of Scripture 1,000 times, each time I read it in horror. What kind of monster would do such a thing to innocent babies? Yet, we are no better than Herod.
Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, just celebrated making the killing of innocent babies a “right” in that state. That “right” entails the ability to kill an innocent baby for any reason at any time. Any time literally up to the moment that child is ready to be delivered.
Children are born into this culture of death and brainwashed from birth that life has no meaning. Through the media that bombards them with images of violence and death, to the games they play, they are desensitized to death from birth. Just 20 minutes from the Liveprayer offices, a 9-year-old boy hung himself in his closet with a couple of belts after dinner. In Arizona, an 8-year-old shot and killed his father and his father's friend. This was not an accidental shooting, but a deliberate act of murder. Teen and child suicide, teens involved in premeditated murder, are both on the rise in this nation.
Several years ago in Florida, a 19-year-old was logged onto a video chat site and with thousands of people online, cheering him on, he overdosed and died, LIVE ON THE INTERNET! We are aghast and disturbed by this. But don't worry, there will be copycats killing themselves live on the Internet in the coming months, and pretty soon it won't be a big deal. We'll simply accept that people are committing suicide live on the Internet just like we accept and are used to people jumping off of high profile bridges to their death.
I love you and care about you so much. Please wake up!!! We not only live in, but we accept this culture of death that hangs over our nation. Jesus came to deliver us from death. Jesus won the victory over death. We do not have to accept this black cloud of death that hangs over our land. It is time Christians took our stand and loudly, boldly, visibly proclaimed LIFE! Children are growing up without any understanding of where life came from and how precious it is. So it is no wonder why they have embraced death to the extent they have.
Are you ready to take your stand for Christ??? Liveprayer is a life-changing vehicle God has been using for 20 years now to impact literally tens of millions of lives all over the world. We have tapped into the great technology of our day to reach the world and individual lives with the Truth of God's Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ. I can't do this alone. Now more than ever it is critical for each person who knows the Lord to step up and allow Him to use your life.
I refuse to accept this culture of death we live in. I am asking you to take your stand for Christ and help me change this nation into a culture of LIFE, abundant now and everlasting through faith in Jesus Christ!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,
