God is Pro Life

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)

Personally I very much have always had Pro Life beliefs. To be honest, it was just recently that in the Bible I have looked up this verse that I have read and came across this scripture in the Bible and knew for sure that it's the right way to believe. I interpret this verse as God saying to us that before children are born He knows what He wants to do with each child. This verse says to me "that children to God are children to God" and before a mother gives birth to the child that is born and to be the newest addition to the family, He for sure has a plan for that child's life. I assume that at anytime when any woman has an abortion it very much affects and hurts the whole family too, and not just the woman. But, any woman that has made the decision to have an abortion hopefully won't beat herself up all of her life. I know that she can still go on with her life and know that God is very much a merciful Father and will still show any person, Church, group and family His gra ce and love. God is a God that doesn't change.

Heavenly Father: I ask that your hand of love, of mercy and everlasting grace reaches out to any and all women, men and children around this world whose lives have been affected by abortion. Let Your love and mercy endure forever. Amen.
