In twenty six days, we are going to have the opportunity to vote to elect our next president. Most Americans are not happy with the presidential candidates selected including myself. That being said, we must rise above all this and consider the bigger picture, the future of our country. There are so many issues to consider, but the most important issue is abortion, the lives of our unborn children are at risk. As follower of Jesus, we need to protect the life and dignity of every human being, especially the unborn. Life comes before all other issues.
There is a great contrast between the two presidential candidates. It is important to stand up for what we believe in, even if we stand alone. In all of its stages, life is a gift from God, and we are stewards of it. One of most powerful weapon that we have is our prayers, we can pray to God to deliver our country from the culture of death and to change the hearts of all those who are pro-abortion. When you walk into the voting booth ask yourself this question: “What is the single most important issue for you as a follower of Jesus in this Presidential Election?”
“God, give us the grace - When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.” –St. John Paul II
May the Lord bless you and may you have the strength to stand up for life!
