You created me in the womb

Within yourself, I became
A living soul without a name;
An entity not yet formed,
Sheltered against outer storms,
By walls created to sustain
God’s breath of life in me–
The tiny child yearning to be.

ME: I came from you, Lord.
(For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm139:13)

ME: You knew me even before.
(“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you . . .” Jeremiah 1:5)

ME: You are the Maker of how I am being formed.
(As you do not know the path of the wind,
or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God,
the Maker of all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5)

ME: I have been created to be a blessing from You, a gift and legacy to my parents.
(Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Psalm 127:3)

ME: I want to live.

How many children never had the chance to be? How many scientists, artisans, poets, doctors, teachers, preachers, disciples of the Lord have been lost to us through ABORTION? Could cancer, MS, and Alzheimers have been cured by them? Was there a great leader in their midst who might have been a peacemaker during national or international strife and war, saving thousands and even millions of lives?
Who might God have created to help mankind deal with our human frailties and problems? Yet, these babies were not given the opportunity to live.

Can we hear their cries? Can we feel their pain? Can we give them voice? We must—by praying for the “unborn” who are actual human beings with a soul instilled by the Maker who breathed life into each one of them. Let us pray for those babies who are kicking and moving inside their mothers, visually seen in ultrasounds, and heard through stethoscopes- beating hearts that must pulsate with our own to have a voice.

ME: I am here. I want to live.
