“Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in. Then the Lord said to Joshua, ‘See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.'” (Joshua 6:1-5)
“You yourselves have seen everything the Lord your God has done to all these nations for your sake; it was the Lord your God who fought for you. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.” (Joshua 23:3,14)
This story did happen. We imitate this today not because 7 days of marching is the key to abortion clinics closing, but rather our obedience and faith in God is what moves the mountains in front of us. Each day that we have gone out to pray, is one more day closer to seeing that clinic close.
Just like this passage reminds us, let us not forget that God is the One who fights our battles. He is the One who completes what He says He is. He never fails in keeping His promise nor is “the Lord slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness.” (2 Peter 3:9) These are all promises we can hold on to and we can be sure they will come into completion.
Here are more pictures of these last few days. I want to let you know that tomorrow is the last day of the Jericho March and is the Closing Rally that marks the 40th day of 40 Days for Life. We are again meeting from 6pm-7pm at Santa Teresa Women’s Reproductive Clinic. (5290 McNutt Rd)
We will be marching 7 times and will be sharing some great news. Thank you again for dedicating an hour to pray this Fall Campaign. I hope to see you tomorrow and look forward to seeing you again for our Spring 2022 Campaign.
Intention: Pray that volunteers will replace exhaustion or discouragement with rejoicing over the miracles we have seen thus far, and enthusiastic service as God takes us on to victory!
