Forty Years Long

"Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, 'It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known My ways'" (Ps. 95:10).

Tuesday, January 22, marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.  Let me put here two things.  First, a prayer request.  Please pray from your heart for the first Walk for Life San Diego (www.sandiegowalkforlife.com), to be held Saturday, January 19.  Pray for its organizers, speakers, and all who attend.  May God use it to help bring the soul of our nation to its senses!

Second, the text of a hymn.  To listen to it sung, or to see and print the music, go to www.oyeoflittlefaith.org.  Look under "Music" and then "New Hymns."

When Man and Wife in Love Conceive

When man and wife in love conceive,
They have, O Lord, from You received
A holy gift beyond compare:
A child placed within their care.

The mother's womb is safe and warm,
The father's love will shield from harm,
And You, O Lord, together knit
The human body intricate.

"In pain," You said, "you will give birth;"
The woman feels the sin-brought curse.
By labor's end, the lesson learned:
"Your sorrow into joy will turn."

Your infant son or daughter bring
To be reborn through baptizing.
There I, the Lord, will take and bless
And robe each one in righteousness.

Dear Christians, never cease to pray
For faith and love these latter days,
For marriage, life, and family,
That all be held in sanctity.
