If you’ve ever wondered what you can do to support life and let others know that you oppose abortion, I have just the event for you: LifeChain. Every year thousands of Americans join together in towns across the country to support life by standing silently for one hour on busy streets holding signs and praying. The event’s founder shares his purpose for the event, and the fact that he hopes more pastors will get involved and encourage their people to take part in the event: “Let us this year, as never before, pray for broken hearts and commitment, that we might see the end of legal child killing and experience mercy for our nation, rather than justice…Let us restore the biblical meaning of pro-life and in so doing restore to the church much needed integrity and relevance. The pulpit can accomplish that. It is more powerful than any congress or parliament.” I’ve taken part in LifeChain myself and can attest to the fact that it is a powerful event that I believe is making a difference. So, can you stand and pray silently for one hour? For a list of locations, visit http://www.NationalLifeChain.org or http://www.LifeChain.net Click here for original article.
