I am writing to you today with one request: that you pray.
But first let me give you some details so you know exactly what to pray for.
You may have heard of the US Supreme Court case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, based on the Gestational Age Act passed by the state of Mississippi in March 2018.
The Supreme Court is viewing this case as an opportunity to determine whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional. In spite of the poor legal basis provided by the Gestational Age Act for considering this question, God has given us an opportunity.
Tomorrow, I will be submitting an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief to the Supreme Court in support of reversing Roe v. Wade, and for the abolition of abortion through the Court’s recognition of the legal personhood of all humans regardless of born or preborn status.
To be clear, this brief does not speak in favor of either party, but simply presents the abolitionist perspective. To my knowledge, this perspective has never been presented to the Supreme Court in an amicus curiae or otherwise.
As great an opportunity as this is, we know that, “Neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:7). And, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps” (Proverbs 16:9).
Therefore, I am asking you to please pray that God uses this brief to convict the Supreme Court justices of the truth, that they would bow before Him and His law, and that they would not only reverse Roe v. Wade, but that they would also recognize and acknowledge the personhood of all humans born or preborn. Specifically you can pray that:
- The words I have written in the brief are clear, powerful, true, convincing, and convicting;
- The brief is read by a large number of Supreme Court clerks, and they are convinced by its contents;
- The clerks advocate for the brief to the justices, and that the justices read it and are convinced;
- The Supreme Court does its God-given and constitutional duty and reverses Roe v. Wade and acknowledges the personhood of preborn humans with the legal ramification that abortion is abolished nationwide;
- That pro-life organizations and public officials reading the brief would be inspired to abolish abortion regardless of whether the Court does the right thing in this case or not; and
- That God would get all the glory.
I would ask that you pray right now, and that you share this as a prayer request in your church and Christian networks.
Thanks for faithfully participating in this battle for life, justice, and righteousness with us.
