Scripture reading: Jeremiah 1:4–10

Who Cares?

A Lament for Lost Lives

 

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:13–14)

 

Little one, without a name Floating in the womb;

I cannot bear the guilt and shame That makes your mom your tomb!

Your nose, your fingers, beating heart Are fashioned with such grace;

I marvel at the Master’s art That put each part in place.

But some blind souls refuse to see Your beauty and your worth;

They talk of rights and liberty, And then deny you birth!

“It’s my body! It’s my choice!” The politicians bicker.

While you remain without a voice . . .

Nothing makes me sicker.

I simply do not understand The politics of hate;

That spreads its lies across the land And seals your tragic fate.

I must speak up with all my might While you remain defenseless.

To let you die without a fight

Would be too cruel and senseless.

 

 

My corporate guilt in this is such I’m desperate for solution.

But words are cheap and don’t do much To cleanse our land’s pollution.

 

O God of Justice, God of love Have mercy on our nation.

Send us your Spirit from above And save us from damnation.

 

 

And so to you, my tiny friend, I vow to fight and pray,

Until the killing has an end And you can see the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is ‘Abortion,’ because it is a war against the child . . . A direct killing of the innocent child, ‘Murder’ by the mother herself . . . And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? —Mother Teresa

 

 

point to ponder Why does God care so much about those who are invisible and forgotten (aliens, orphans, widows, prisoners, the sick, the unborn, etc.)?

 

prayer focus For the unborn and their mothers, fathers, and extended family.
