From the Christian Defense Coalition:

Do you believe 27 hours of prayer and worship can change history?

We do.

“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” -Jeremiah 29:12-13

On Sunday, September 13, at 7:00 P.M. Christians will be gathering on the West Lawn of the United States Capitol for 27 hours of intercession and worship. Believers will be crying out for God to intervene in the national health care debate and ensure that taxpayer funds and not used to pay for abortions.

This marks the first full week that Congress is in session after the August recess.

If public monies are used to pay for abortions, it would add at least 25 years in our struggle to end abortion in America because abortion would then become an entitlement. It would also place our nation on a collision course with God’s judgment because every citizen will be subsidizing the crushing of human rights and social justice by paying for abortions. In other words, Christians would now be responsible for the shedding of innocent blood.

The future of our nation is at stake. It is time for the church to rise up and be a prophetic witness and powerful voice for justice.

We do not have to be helpless bystanders as events unfold on the world stage. But through intercession and worship, we can help change and shape history.

These 27 hours can change the future of our nation forever and help ignite a sovereign move of God that will bring spiritual awakening and cultural reformation to America. As we gather on the lawn of the Capitol in repentance and passion we believe that the Holy Spirit will move in a powerful way.

We have already seen God do amazing things as Christians gathered on Capitol Hill at the end of July to pray for a delay on the Health Care vote until after the August recess. Against all odds, God answered that prayer in a dramatic way and the vote was delayed. The Holy Spirit is now calling us back to prayer.

We prayerfully ask you to consider coming to Washington, D.C. to be a part of this historic 27 hours. It is imperative that the Church step of their apathy and indifference and into the purposes of God for this hour.

Time Magazine sets the figure of abortions carried out in China every year at 13 million. Chinese National newspaper, The China Daily, however, says that actually the numbers of abortions are much higher with 10 million abortion pills being sold every year and an undisclosed, immeasurable number of abortions carried out in rural facilities.

With abortion figures as high as 23 million fetuses yearly, that is 7% of the American population, surely something is dramatically awry in China. Since 1979, the Chinese government has held in place a ‘one-child policy,’ that is to say, most families are allowed only one child (there are some exceptions.) Every family violating this rule is subject to increased taxes and other fines to deter couples from breaking the law in future.

The one-child policy, coupled with a culture quickly developing a liberal outlook towards casual sex, surely causes the rate of abortion to skyrocket.

How long will the Chinese government allow injustice caused by their policy?
