Holy Week Tuesday- April 7, 2020 Intercession against abortion
April 7, 2020, 8:35 AM

Each day of Holy Week this year I am praying for victory over the virus and a great turning of our nation back toward God.  I have set aside time in place of lunch over the noon hour to intercede in prayer in the light of Daniel's intercessory prayer of repentance for his backslidden nation in Daniel 9.

I am choosing a particular focus each day.  Yesterday it was the church.  1 Peter 4:17 (KJV) says "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God".

Today I focus my intercessory prayer of repentance upon abortion.  This morning it is reported that there are 10, 994 deaths due to COVID-19.  While this is tragic, the proabortion Guttmacher organization reports there were 862,320 abortions in the US in 2017.  That is 2,363 on average per day.  Groups glorify abortion rights with huge rally's and fight for government funding and special protections, just to take an innocent life.  Even as many businesses today are closed, and most elective surgeries postoned, aboriton clinics fight to stay open.

This day I cry out like Daniel "Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame. . ." (Daniel 9:7). 

May the Lord convict us of our sin and bring us to real repentance.
