Life Politics

John Kasich and Marco Rubio supporters should unite behind Ted Cruz, or give the nomination to Trump!

The newly-elected Republican State Committee is overwhelmingly pro-life, according to Massachusetts Citizens for Life, which closely monitors pro-life support. Anne Fox, President of the organization, reports: "While the buzz was all about the slates run by the Governor and others, members of Mass Citizens were doing their work and making their phone calls. The results are impressive: out of 80 members of the newly-elected State Committee, 50 are pro-life, 13 are not pro-life. The position of the other 17 is not known at this time."

“Strengthen me, O Lord God, by the grace of Your Holy Spirit [Psalm 51:12]. Grant me inward power and strength [Ephesians 3:16], and empty my heart of all profitless anxiety and care [Matthew 6:34]. Let me never be drawn away from You by desire for anything else, whether noble or base, but help me to realize that all things are passing, and myself with them. Nothing in this world is lasting, and everything in this life is uncertain, troubling to the spirit [Ecclesiastes 1:14 & 2:11]. How wise is the man who knows these truths! Grant me heavenly wisdom, O Lord, that above all else I may learn to search for and discover You; to know and love You; and to see all things as they really are, and as You in Your wisdom have ordered them. May I prudently avoid those who flatter me, and deal patiently with those who oppose me. True wisdom cannot be swayed by every wordy argument [Ephesians 4:14], and pays no regard to the cunning flatteries of evil men. Only thus shall we go forward steadily on the road on which we have set out.”
