- The death of the little girl and her mother through a third-trimester abortion two weeks ago has been heavy on my heart. I’m not sure what hurts more, the fact that this little girl went from being wanted to being killed because they found an anomaly, or because that little girl was later in her development (33 weeks) than my youngest son was when he was born (32 weeks). I wrote a blog post for Desiring God but I fear there is more heat than light offered; it is now in the hands of the young man who edits my blog posts for DG. Please pray that he would find something he can work with, and if so, it would be a help to the church. And if he can’t work with it, I’m going to make another attempt – this issue must be addressed by those of us who live with children who would otherwise be discarded in this horrible way.
- I’m headed to Auburn, Alabama later this week for an event for parents experiencing disability in their children. I’ll also have the chance to meet with the pastoral staff and interns of the church hosting the event. I would greatly appreciate prayers as the audience, I’m told, is a mix of people – Christians, non-Christians, and all kinds of understandings of God’s sovereignty (or lack thereof) in disability. Please pray that God would be glorified, Jesus would be seen as greatest treasure, and that many would come to know God as good and sovereign over disability. And if you’re near Auburn, I understand they could still take a few people – I would love to see you!
Would you pray about two things with and for me?
