Letter: Silent Prayer Chain will line streets Sunday
Each year, National Life Chain’s “Silent Prayer Chain for the Unborn” lines U.S. and Canadian sidewalks with a prayerful and peaceful public witness to protect the innocent babies in the womb. Christians of all ages are urged to participate in this event, which highlights the need for our churches and all believers of life from conception to natural death to bond their spiritual forces to end the killing of millions of innocent children through abortion.
Participants hold their vigil to emphasize that society must move past the “abortion issue” to the unborns’ humanity and provide the children uncompromising protection that can also end the killing.
Worldmeter reports 3,000 abortions performed each day in the United States. Although declining, it is still shocking to think of that number of precious lives lost. Pro-life advocates will never stop fighting for the unborn.
For many, abortion causes severe and long lasting emotional, psychological and spiritual trauma. Other detrimental effects have also been documented. (For help, visit www.HopeAfterAbortion.org.)
We are all asked to prepare with earnest intercession and reflections to promote the National Life Chain Sunday’s success.
Christians of all ages are urged to participate. Spend one hour from 2 to 3 p.m. with the local Life Chain participants who will meet at the corner of Main and Innes streets in downtown Salisbury for this event.
