…A candle of faith
for our Creator to fulfill His will
on earth as it is in heaven
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
Jesus taught us to pray for Father God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). Jesus also told us that it is not the Father’s will that any of these little children should perish (Matthew 18:14).

In these times of rampant injustice, when so many of the “least of these” are perishing, Jesus calls us to exercise the faith of a persistent widow, who continued to come before an unjust judge asking him for justice (Luke 18:1-8). God promises to answer these faithful prayers, if some injustices will continue even until He returns, He calls us to exercise even more faith (Luke 18:8), knowing that Christ’s return will right every wrong.

One of the primary reasons that the injustice of abortion continues today is that many (even many who claim to be strongly pro-life) lack the courage to make specific requests to God, asking Him to grant us the practical solutions to end abortion in our community and nation. We have not because we ask not, and because we crave the friendship of the world more than we crave the friendship of Christ (James 4:2-4).
