When the battle over the separation of church and state rears its ugly head, it is normally Democrats who are attempting to keep the church from participating in state issues. At times, the fight is to remove prayer from political gatherings. Given the types of prayers recently promoted by some Democrats in Iowa, it is easy to understand why some want the church separated from the state.
Why? Seems some Democrats and pro-abortion activists have their own god to pray to!
“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”
“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”
“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”
“We pray for women who have been made afraid of their own power by their materialistic religion. May they learn to reject fear and live bravely.”
“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”
Now, I’m not sure what god is being prayed to above who would grant abortion. Maybe the Old Testament gives some insight.
“You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord” (Leviticus 18:21, ESV). [emphasis added]
My prayer is that these folks would repent of their sins – including these prayers – and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins granting them eternal life. That they would turn and fight for the life of those precious little ones in the womb who are made in God’s image.
