Week 2: United In Prayer and Fasting to End Abortion In New Mexico

Week 2: United In Prayer and Fasting to End Abortion In New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM- Last week we began the first of six weeks of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion in New Mexico. The scriptures tell us that prayer and fasting combined hold power to break strongholds that prayer alone can not. Thank you to those of you who are standing with us sacrificially over the next five weeks to ask the Lord to break demonic strongholds and to loose the chains of injustice so that New Mexico will become Abortion Free.

Last Wednesday right at sunset as we were breaking our fast, it began to rain at our house and we praised the Lord for what felt like a breakthrough as New Mexico has faced severe drought. Hopefully, we will also begin to see breakthrough in the deep spiritual drought our state is facing. It is easy to see how broken this state has become due to late term abortion, poverty, crime and deeply entrenched corruption.

Over the next five weeks we will continue to faithfully pray and fast to fight this battle spiritually to end all abortions in New Mexico, we are trusting and believing that the Lord is already using this united effort to accomplish His will for our state.

Each Wednesday we will send you a passage of scripture to pray and meditate on.

This week’s scripture reading comes from Isaiah 58:6, 

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?”

Over the next five weeks of united prayer and fasting together we will call upon the Lord to break the strongholds that are keeping abortion in New Mexico.

Prayer Points:

  • An end to all abortion in New Mexico.
  • For strongholds that are keeping abortion in New Mexico to be broken.
  • For the closure of the last 5 abortion facilities in the state.
  • For the women considering an abortion.
  • For the conversion of all abortion facility workers.
  • For the women who’ve participated in a previous abortion and need healing.
  • For the upcoming 2018 New Mexico election

Note: Fasting can be done in many ways.

  • Some may choose to fast from sunrise to sunset.
  • Others may choose to fast from 6:00am-3:00pm as a partial fast.
  • For others, a fast might be one full meal for the day, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.

Abortion Free New Mexico has been asked to join in weekly prayer and fasting for an end to abortion in New Mexico over the next five Wednesdays until March 28th. We invite those in the body of Christ who are able to join us in this spiritual discipline to break the stronghold and spirit of death that surrounds us.

This is a united effort between both Non-Catholic and Catholic Christians who are committed to ending abortion in New Mexico. For more information during the season of Lent Catholics are encouraged to visit this website.

United In Prayer and Fasting to End Abortion In New Mexico

United In Prayer and Fasting to End Abortion In New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM- Abortion is a deeply rooted demonic stronghold, not only in New Mexico but across this nation. In 1 Corinthians 15: 25-26, Paul tells us that death is God’s final enemy that will be destroyed, so we know that death, especially that of the innocent child in the womb is outside of God’s will. In 2018 we felt the Lord impress upon us that we need to focus more in fighting this battle for life in New Mexico through concentrated prayer and fasting. 

Abortion Free New Mexico has been asked to join in weekly prayer and fasting for an end to abortion in New Mexico over the next six Wednesdays from February 14th- March 28th. We invite those in the body of Christ who are able to join us in this spiritual discipline to break the stronghold and spirit of death that surrounds us.
 
The scriptures are clear that prayer and fasting can bring the power and presence of God to work on our behalf and cast out demonic strongholds. Each Wednesday we will send you a passage of scripture to pray and meditate on. This week’s scripture reading comes from Matthew 17: 14-21, Jesus speaks to his disciples as if he were speaking to us today:
“And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.” Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Over the next six weeks of united prayer and fasting together we will call upon the Lord to break the strongholds that are keeping abortion in New Mexico.

Prayer Points:

  • An end to all abortion in New Mexico.
  • For strongholds that are keeping abortion in New Mexico to be broken.
  • For the closure of the last 5 abortion facilities in the state.
  • For the women considering an abortion.
  • For the conversion of all abortion facility workers.
  • For the women who’ve participated in a previous abortion and need healing.
  • For the upcoming 2018 New Mexico election

Note: Fasting can be done in many ways.

  • Some may choose to fast from sunrise to sunset.
  • Others may choose to fast from 6:00am-3:00pm as a partial fast.
  • For others, a fast might be one full meal for the day, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.

NM Election Rundown 2018: We Can’t Lose Any More Ground This November

NM Election Rundown 2018: We Can’t Lose Any More Ground This November

Albuquerque, NM- As we work to make New Mexico an abortion free state where every pre-born child is valued and protected, we are acutely aware of the implications of the upcoming November election. New Mexico continues in a dismal direction as we rank lowest in the areas that are most important. New Mexico is second to last in child well being, the worst state in the nation to raise a family and was found to be the worst run state in the nation.

It’s important that we don’t lose any more ground, the progressive liberals in New Mexico want nothing more than total control of our state and that will dig us into an even deeper hole.

Abortion Free New Mexico worked hard to get Michelle Garcia Holmes on the ballot for Lt. Governor and she is joined at the top by Steve Pearce who is running for Governor. They are running unopposed on the republican ticket to lead this state with the conviction of their principles.

As a family, over the weekend, we attended the opening of the Republican statewide candidate headquarters. We were so blessed to meet many of the candidates running for office who want to stop playing politics and turn things around for New Mexico. A campaign flier for Michael Hendricks, who is running to replace current Attorney General Hector Balderas, says it best,

“New Mexico needs a bold independent minded leader who will not be beholden to anyone besides the people of our great state.”

Our sense is that the tide is shifting in New Mexico and if we unite together to help get like minded people of conviction elected that our state will move in a positive direction. New Mexico will no longer be known as a place of corruption, late term abortion and violence.

Your voice and your vote matter. New Mexico needs positive change with leaders who fear the Lord and will work to restore justice for the babies. Stay tuned for ways you can get involved to elect leaders who share our faith and values here in New Mexico.
