40 DAYS FOR LIFE: DAY 2: Planned Parenthood in panic mode

— Acts 6:1
Father, in the Church’s desire to engage our communities with the gospel, let us gain wisdom from those who have gone before us and cherish their experiences and perspectives. Help us to appreciate every soul in the body of Christ and minister properly to everybody.
