The Race That Is Set Before Us
40 Days for Life Feb. 22 - April 1
 
Dear <<First Name>>,

Mark your calendars for our Midpoint Rally this Saturday (March 10) at 10:30AM right in front of Planned Parenthood with our guest speaker Greg Robeson of Life Really Matters.

RSVP on Facebook

Today's message comes from our guest auther Stephen Schmidt, the chapter leader of Coalition St. Louis LifeRunners.
Scripture

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Heb 12:1


Reflection

When I signed up to run a half marathon this spring, I made a commitment. A commitment to train in preparation for that race, even on those days when I want to run, when it was cold or raining, or I just didn’t feel like getting out of bed. I know that if I don’t commit to my training, the odds of my finishing the race go down and the odds of injury go up.

As a LIFE Runner, I have also made a commitment to the unborn; a commitment to join prayer to my running and in doing so raise awareness and funds for the unborn. In doing so I join hundreds of LIFE Runners around the country who have committed to doing the same. This fall LIFE Runners from all over the country will gather in St. Louis as a cloud of witnesses to run the Rock-n-Roll St. Louis marathon/half-marathon (21 Oct 2012) as part of that commitment to the unborn.

At the 40 Days for Life kick-off rally a couple of weeks ago, I made a commitment to stand and pray in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility during this spring campaign. In doing so I join many other people in this community, another cloud of witnesses, who have made a similar commitment to life. A commitment to pray week after week on the sidewalk, sometimes in the rain or the cold, even when they don’t feel like it.

Take some time today to pray and ask yourself how you can be part of this cloud of witnesses. Can you commit to stand (or run!) for life?

Come out to pray with us, and stand up for the women, men and children who are at risk for abortion.  If not YOU, then WHO?
