"...nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day." 1 Timothy 1:12

A baby saved at Wortman's Abortion Clinic Oct. 22

For the second week in a row we have seen a baby saved at Morris Wortman's abortion clinic.

The mom was young accompanied by her own mother, father and a small boy. As Jerry and I called out and showed the pictures of choice: a live or dead baby, her parents stopped and looked. We offered hope and the truth.We asked them not to participate in the black genocide that occurs through abortion. We pointed them to Jesus and asked that they choose life. We assured them that there are ministries that will help them during this difficult time. Yet, all went into the clinic.We knew that the staff would not let the young child remain. A child on the grounds is disruptive to the women seeking to kill her child and one inside is never tolerated.

Sure enough the grandpa and the small boy came out to talk with us. The young mother with the help of her parents, grandparents of her child, decided to give life to that baby. We gave them contact numbers and literature that they could use to get future support.

God has been moving at Wortman's Clinic in response to your prayers, please keep it up. Call if you would like to stand for life at this portal of death and heartache.

Christians Called to Observe The National Day of Prayer
At Local Abortion Mill

Rescue Rochester coordinated two National Day of Prayer gatherings and had 26 believers from 8 different churches participate. While we were praying and quietly interceding for the clinic workers and the moms and dads that had scheduled appointments to have Dr. Wortman kill their child, three dedicated sidewalk counselors pleaded for the babies' lives. The killing center was especially busy May 6th, as if Goliath was taunting the armies of the living God saying, "Go ahead and pray, I still will receive the blood of the innocent!"

The temptation would be to say, "Where is the rest of the church!" The focus should rather be on the faithfulness of those that came and stood in the gap. Moms, dads, young people, businessmen and businesswomen, grandmas and grandpas, pastors all standing in the gap, and acting on their faith to address the national sin of bloodguilt. Doesn't God always work through minorities empowered by His love and passion and truth?! Remember David and Noah, Paul and Peter and others both in church history and in present times. Remember and just respond as God Leads you!

Afterwards, we traveled to the center of Monroe County to the busiest intersection, The Twelve Corners. Here 3 major roads intersect and in the middle triangle of ground is a Memorial Park with a small gazebo. In that gazebo we gathered and interceded for our President and national leaders. We prayed for our troops stationed around the globe. We asked God to heal the institutions of our nation. And as Christians we emulated the prophet Daniel who though a righteous man understood that the bondage and captivity of his nation was due to sin. I'm sure Daniel was tempted to point the finger of accusation at those he saw as the cause of the national sin that Israel labored under. He didn't. He owned the sin himself. He stood identified with the sin and confessed it before God as if it was his own.

See Daniel 9:3-20,

"And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee. O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

To the Lord our God belong mercies ...O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name."

After prayer we held pictures and signs that depicted the cost of every abortion, a dead baby. These signs were held at each point of the triangle in the intersection with hundreds of cars driving past. This is a very affluent and liberal part of the county and it is also in a town where many of the abortionists live. Many that drove by were livid.

George Washington was commander of the Continental Army that won our independence from Great Britain. He was our first constitutionally elected president, taking the oath of office to protect and defend the newly one liberties of this nation with his hand on a bible declaring afterwards, "So help me God!" President Washington knew that it was impossible to rightly govern without God and the Bible. Faith in God has always been indispensable in assuring our freedoms and blessings as a nation. Specifically, Christian faith is the very underpinning of the security and prosperity that we enjoy in these United States. That is why 2 Chronicles7 is such and appropriate scripture to stand on in the days we live. We, those that see and understand the sin of bloodguilt and what it is doing to our nation, are the ones that must respond. Not in finger pointing, but in humble personal repentance, owning that sin as if it was our own, motivated to take action. 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." May we persist until we see righteousness restored in our nation, where each baby is cherished in life and protected in our laws, "So Help Us God."
