DAY 29: The Pro-Life Generation

“We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn…” (Palm 78:4-6)

In my opinion, college campuses are the heart of the abortion battle in the United States.  Culture is shaped by youth, and if we want to end abortion, we have to start by winning the hearts and minds of young people.

The abortion industry knows this, and that’s why they target young people.

Did you know 79% of Planned Parenthoods are within 5 miles of a college campus?  And 52% of women seeking abortion are under the age of 25?

Fortunately, many young people are rising up and leading the charge against abortion.

I was so encouraged recently to learn about a group called “Students for Life.”  Their website boldly declares: “We are the Pro-Life Generation, and we will abolish abortion.”

Their mission is to transform culture by recruiting, training, and mobilizing pro-lifers to abolish abortion.  And their influence is spreading through high schools, colleges, law schools and med schools across the nation.  In the past 11 years their clubs have expanded from 100 to over 1,200 groups on campuses!

Suggested things to pray for:
  • Today let’s pray for young people under the age of 25.  Pray that they become the Pro-Life generation that abolishes abortion!  Pray that God would raise up new leaders to direct this movement.  And pray that we (the older generation) would do a good job training, supporting and releasing them.
