Mr. President, Pray for the Unborn

Are the babies in the empty chair

Dear President Obama, my prayers are with you as I write this letter today, anticipating your State of the Union address

Sir, you recently tweeted: "If there's even one thing we can do, if there's just one life we can save — we've got an obligation to try.” Your appeal seemed to be directed at gun control. Yet, the one life chord is vibrating on a frequency that embraces not just victims of gun violence, but even reaching the innocent lives in the womb.

"'I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.'" They said, "'What is that to us? See to it yourself.'" — Matthew 27:4 (ESV). 

Dear President Obama, in the Bible there have been great kings and rulers. Some served God, some did not. In many cases some of these rulers came to know and serve God because of prayerful people within their courts and cabinets. I’m sure you have such voices around you.

In your recent gun control speech you spoke of Zaevion, a high school student, and his heroism as he dove on top of three girls to shield them from the bullets. He was shot in the head. The girls were spared.

You quoted John 15:16, “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.” To lay down one’s life for a friend takes an extremely selfless act, something we don’t hear about too often.

As you spoke and began to become misty eyed, I could see the compassion you have for those who are senselessly killed by guns. I believe that many Americans feel the same way you do, not only for gun violence but for any type of violence.

Mother Teresa once said, “I feel that 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.”

I’m writing today to appeal to your compassion for those lost to violent acts and I ask you to consider that what our world needs is not just gun control but violence control. We need to turn to love for the answer.

I do not want to politicize the issue of guns or abortion and that’s why I’m inviting you to step out of the political arena and invite you to step into the arena of principles and moral values. The arena where we can change the world through love and peace
