What is Keeping the Lord’s People Too Busy to Pray.

The prayer meeting at your church should be filled with people moved to prayerful action asking for God’s forgiveness; asking Him to hear our prayers, asking Him to see the oppression, asking Him to act on our behalf.

If your church is like most in the land today, the prayer room will be empty or the prayer meeting cancelled due to lack of interest while the rest of the church house is busy with activity; the kind of activity that is keeping the Lord’s people too busy to pray.

Here is my full column in the Times-News this week.

You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.” William Wilberforce

The truth of what has been going on in Planned Parenthood clinics reminds us of the ethical question in front of the Magic Valley.

Residents of the Magic Valley, the recent video footage of the employees of Planned Parenthood talking about body parts being sold around the nation is alarming, shocking, sobering. We must be careful that we don’t give our local Planned Parenthood clinic a pass because the ethics of the local clinic are above those in other parts of the country. You and I must not forget that the killing of innocent unborn babies is happening on our watch right here in our own region in our own town.

“Righteousness belongs to You, O Lord, but to us open shame, [because unfaithful deeds which have been committed against You.]” (Daniel 9:7—NASB)

I get that there is public outcry over the selling of body parts, there should be.

But wait a minute, why is there not ongoing outcry over the murdering of unborn babies?

Church, the sanctity of all human life is of significant interest and importance. There is no reasonable reason why the local Planned Parenthood clinic is still being allowed to legally murder unborn babies in our community, on our watch. The open shame that Daniel is speaking about in the ninth chapter of Daniel is the kind of shame that belongs to a people who know what’s going on and are either deceived by the propaganda or are actively deceiving others. The godless work of Planned Parenthood is on us! This must stop.

The prayer meeting at your church should be filled with people moved to prayerful action asking for God’s forgiveness; asking Him to hear our prayers, asking Him to see the oppression, asking Him to act on our behalf.

If your church is like most in the land today, the prayer room will be empty or the prayer meeting cancelled due to lack of interest while the rest of the church house is busy with activity; the kind of activity that is keeping the Lord’s people too busy to pray.

Yes, open shame belongs to us, O Lord.

Yes, individuals, families, churches, communities, and nations must deal with ethical/moral matters. To ignore Planned Parenthood this time or defend their operations as women’s health will be at a level of shame that we will never be able to say again that “we did not know.”

This is on us.
