“Then Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose for yourselves one bull and prepare it first, for you are many, and call upon the name of your god…” they prepared it and called upon the name of Baal from morning until noon, saying, “O Baal, answer us!” But there was no voice, and no one answered…And at noon Elijah mocked them, saying, “Cry aloud, for he is a god. Either he is musing, or he is relieving himself, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.”” 1 Kings 18:25-27 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1ki.18.25-27.ESV
Essential Prayers for Life
Prayer walk – March for Life Resources https://ministry.family.blog/2021/01/26/prayer-walk-march-for-life-resources-1-29-2021/
Prayer, public witness of the church, and proclaiming God’s truth and grace.
Why are we here (in this sin fallen world)?
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace.
To make disciples of all nations.
Why are we here (on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic)?
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace.
To love the captive soul and to preach the good news!
What message are we sharing and bearing witness to?
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
We humans are created in His image.
We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.
But God is merciful and loving.
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!
Romans 3:10-18, 23
1 Corinthians 15:3-8

Kirk Cameron says public schools have become ‘public enemy No. 1,’ calls for Americans to put their faith in a ‘homeschool awakening’ in new documentary https://www.theblaze.com/news/kirk-cameron-says-public-schools-have-become-public-enemy-no-1-calls-for-americans-to-put-their-faith-in-a-homeschool-awakening-in-new-documentary?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
“‘The public school system, unfortunately, has not been working with us, but actively working against us,’ Cameron declared. ‘In my opinion, the public school system has become public enemy No. 1. We need to take back the education of our children because whoever controls the textbooks controls the future,’ the popular actor said. ‘Whoever’s shaping the hearts and minds and souls of our children will determine whether or not we live in a free country.‘“

Colion Noir: Florida Sheriff Says Homeowners Can Save Taxpayers Money by Shooting Intruders https://youtu.be/uZ7rO1w9HXc
“Your home is your sanctuary; it’s the one place where you go to get rest, peace, and security. I have zero tolerance for anyone who disrupts that by invading my home. It should be understood that if you invade someone’s home, you will likely be shot. If there are no severe consequences for such extreme actions, it just encourages criminals to do more. Invading homes should be seen as risky business to criminals, and the way you do that is by doing exactly what this sheriff said… A government that genuinely cares about the safety of its people will empower them, but a government that cares about control will make its people dependent on its power.”
