Pray for a Supreme Conversion

Posted: January 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

This weekend pastors across the country will be leading churches in prayer to stop the senseless slaughter of preborn children in our nation.  More than a million children are killed, or aborted, in their mother’s womb every year in the United States. 

Christians should continue to peacefully but forcefully rise up to rid this evil from our land just as they fought to end slavery in the 19th century and discrimination based on color in the 20th century.

It is important to remember that it has not always been as it is now.  Until the landmark case of Roe. v. Wade in 1973, abortion was illegal in many states.  The Supreme Court, in a 7-2 ruling, held that abortion is a Constitutional right even though the Founding Fathers were aware of abortion and left the decision on how or if to regulate it to the individual states.  Roe was the culmination of the secular lefts abusing the courts to pass legislation that was not popular enough to move through Congress. 

Abortion advocates still hold a slim majority of the Court’s seats (5 to 4) but that is a dramatic improvement.  During the Bush administration, the idea of a pro-life majority became a real possibility.  Thus, many pro-life proponents were crestfallen after the 2008 election believing that President Obama would never appoint a pro-life justice to the bench. 

Yet, what if God saves one of the pro-abortion justices already serving on the Court? We have seen supposedly conservative justices drift left after their appointments (i.e., Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy and David Souter) but could the reverse happen? For example, what if Justice Kennedy, (who is the swing vote on the Court and has recently supported the ban on partial-birth abortions), had a radical conversion to Christ? Would such a movement of the Spirit be any more dramatic than the conversion of Saul or John Newton?

Wouldn’t it be just like God to allow the election of a president who supports the killing of the preborn but grant the prayers of pro-life advocates like myself by giving us the 5th Justice…one that is already on the bench?

May it be so.
