On the first Lord’s Day of October at 2:00 pm Christians across the country will be standing on the Main Street of their towns for an hour of silent prayer and holding signs that read, “Abortion Kills Children, Abortion Hurts Women, Jesus Forgives and Heals, etc.”

We will be joining them and we ask that you consider doing the same.

God says in his word, “All those who hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:36) and our culture has proved that sad statement to be true.In our country alone, 3,700 abortions are performed daily and no one seems to care.

Furthermore, and based on the attendance at our local Life Chain over the past years, it also seems that even pro-life Christians are unaffected by this modern holocaust.

Life Chain does not advertise this annual event. It rather depends on local pastors to lead their members out of the church sanctuaries and onto the city sidewalks.

We do not know whether your pastor has informed you of this event or encouraged participation, but in the name of the Lord Jesus, we beseech you by the mercies of Christ to stand with us.

God himself calls you to this in Proverbs 24:11, saying, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.”

All of your potential excuses are immediately anticipated and addressed in the following verses: “If you say, ‘Surely we did not know this,’ does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?”

Will you not stand with us for just one hour? Is staying within your “comfort zone” really more important than a child’s life? What if your simple presence causes one single woman to reconsider her plans to murder her child? Will it not have then been well worth your time?

We will be standing on the corner of HWY 33 & H and expect to see you there.
