I’m once again writing for two days since I did not have the chance to write anything yesterday. Sometimes our prayer times are just not that exciting and we do not always receiving exciting revelations or pray exciting prayers. Yesterday was that kind of day. I showed up on time, I prayed through the Luminous mysteries of the Rosary and tried to meditate on them as best I could, but I will admit that my mind wandered quite often and I had to keep trying to re-focus myself and stay on track. Yesterday was a day that I will have to believe that something was still accomplished in the heavenlies simply because I chose to keep a commitment because it is the Lord who is faithful and according to 2 Thessalonians 3 it is the Lord who will establish me and guard me from the evil one!
Today, I’m happy to say, was quite different. I felt encouraged, almost energized during my prayer time this morning. As I prayed this morning I had a real sense of expectation today; a sense that there has been a spiritual break-through in Germantown. The Lord was giving me wonderful prayers to pray this morning for the clinic workers. While reflecting on Jesus as the Light of the World, I prayed earnestly that as each individual, who works at the Germantown clinic, arrives for work today and encounters someone on the sidewalk from 40 Days for Life, that they will be overwhelmed with the light of Christ in that person. I don’t know how many people work at the abortion clinic in Germantown. It may be only a couple of people or it may be 10 people, but, one thing I do know is that beginning today, those individuals can no longer ignore the people praying on sidewalk in front of the clinic because the light will be too bright! I asked the Lord for a miracle today. I asked that at least one person would receive the courage needed to turn away from the abortion industry forever.
“It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great.
You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.”
