5 at 5:00 State Prayer Campaign Launched

By St. Joseph County Right to Life | April 12, 2018, 9:12pm

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Whole Woman's Health (WWH) has been working for months now to get a foothold in South Bend. They've purchased property, applied for a license, appealed after the license denial, and recently began a media campaign. We, the pro-life community, will combat their doggedness, semantics, dishonesty, and immorality through the single most powerful weapon we have: prayer.

Join St. Joseph County Right to Life, Indiana Right to Life, and affiliate groups in 5 @ 5:00: a new, statewide prayer campaign in response to the WWH abortion threat to South Bend and the entire Indiana community. Launched at our 11th annual Respect Life Prayer Dinner tonight, this campaign will be active among Indiana Right to Life and all its affiliates very soon—and we had the privilege of kicking it off!

Every day at 5pm, join with Hoosiers across the state for 5 minutes of prayer. A specific, statewide prayer request focused on the current proceedings of the WWH abortion threat will unify us in prayer: to begin, our request is that the Lord will keep abortions out of South Bend. The intention will be updated periodically and added to our website. We will also include a notification of request updates in our weekly email broadcasts.

Our membership knew from the start that WWH's abortion mission was intrinsically evil, and based off that alone, our next steps were abundantly clear. This collaborative campaign has been in the works for quite a few weeks now, and while editing the promotional video, the devil reared his vile head. When WWH started their media advertisements the same day we finished creating our promotion, it became clearer than ever that this threat is not solely a legal or political battle: this is a spiritual struggle, and in response, we are calling for the rest of the Indiana pro-life community to engage in spiritual warfare through this state prayer campaign. Our God is great, and as a state facing threats to life, we choose to rely even more on His almighty power.

Current prayer intention: That the Lord will keep abortion out of South Bend.
