Our greatest weapon in the fight to end abortion is prayer.
Prayer is a simple yet powerful act that anyone; young or old, new to the movement or a decades
long advocate can participate in. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces
of evil in the heavenly realms” Ephesians 6:12.
We can all call upon God to grant us power over the evil of abortion.
