Scripture Meditation: 1 Kings 3:16-18, Matthew 2:18, Psalm 139:13-16, Luke 1:41
“A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.” Matthew 2:18
When New York’s Governor celebrated legalizing the murder of unborn children at the time of birth, he lit up the city’s landmarks with a pink light, and when Virginia tried to push the same legislation and the Governor described how an innocent newborn’s fate would be in the hands of his/her mother, the light in the hand of the lady, who holds the torch of liberty, “darkened”.
And a cry went out across this country from those who mourn for the innocent; for the hand of their protection is no more.
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but 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
