The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

Why We Pray - Day 3 of 40 Days for Life Fort Lauderdale

According to the Florida Agency For Health Care Administration, 12,001 unborn children were aborted in Broward County in 2012.
That is an average of 33 children a day. AHCA reports that 6,480 unborn have been aborted in the first six months of 2012. That is why we are holding a prayer vigil in front of the All Women's Medical Center located at 2100 E. Commercial Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Pastor Randy Alcorn has written,

“According to the Scriptures, there are spiritual beings present here, righteous angels and fallen angels, and we are under attack. There is a battle for our minds, and a battle for our souls: It’s not fiction, it’s not imagination; it’s revealed reality. There is great spiritual warfare associated with the issue of abortion.”  (Pro-life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments, pg. 353)

He's right. The struggle between light and darkness, life and death, the devil and the church began thousands of years ago, as recorded by Moses,

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." (Genesis 3:15 NIV)

As Eric Holmberg has said,  
“In the battle for life against child sacrifice in all its many permutations, the enmity that is between the seed of the woman, the church, and the seed of the serpent, the Devil, finds perhaps its greatest expression. This is where heaven and hell meet.”
("The Abortion Matrix" DVD (

Jesus was explicit in identifying who was behind murder when he exposed the apostasy of the religious leaders who opposed his claim to Deity.

"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
(John 8:44 NIV)

Here is the devil's job description according to Jesus. It fits the abortion industry like a custom fit glove - deception and murder. 

So we pray, recognizing that,

"The on who does what is sinful is of the devil because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work." (1 John 3:8 NIV)

Ending abortion is Church business. When I arrived at the clinic this afternoon, there was one lone prayer vigil volunteer standing in front of the ten foot high black fence. After he left, again as on day one, I stood alone until another volunteer joined me. I shared this thought with him - what would God do if there were hundreds of believers lining the boulevard for blocks - pouring out their hearts to God to end abortion?

Join with us in interceeding for the protection of the unborn; that mothers and fathers would choose life; for the conversion of Dr. Lehrer and the abortion clinic workers; for healing and forgiveness for those who have been involved in abortion; and that abortion will come to an end in Fort Lauderdale and America.

Read over those requests again. This will not happen without the intervention of God. Come Church, join the struggle against "the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12)

Pastors - lead your congregation into the spiritual blessing America desperately needs. Wrap abortion in the gospel, proclaiming liberty and freedom to those bound by the deception of the devil and extend healing and restoration to the post-abortive throgh the gospel.

40 Days for Life prayer and fasting campaigns are taking place in 315 cities across America. You can go to to locate a campaign near you and register to participate in prayer to end abortion in America.
