Choose Life!

"This is what the LORD says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of his oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the alien, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place. Jeremiah 22:3
Our "Praying Grandmothers" group participated with our home church and Houston Coalition for Life during the "40 Days for Life" prayer campaign on Oct. 29, 2012.
The blue bus is a mobile crisis pregnancy center. It parks on the street near the largest Planned Parenthood facility in the United States. It costs $250 daily to operate this mobile CPC. Please pray that God will provide the resources for this valuable ministry, and that our Lord, who gives life, will raise up individuals all across the globe who will stand in the gap for the unborn.

Exalt Jesus

"Therefore God exalted him (Jesus) to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Phil. 2: 9 - 11 (NIV).

Because Jesus humbled himself and became obedient to his Father to death on a cross, God the Father exalted him.
During "40 Days of Prayer" leading to America's presidential election, Anne Graham Lotz leads prayer for Jesus Christ to be exalted as Lord. Click here to view the video.

Praying for the Nations

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I (Jesus) commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28: 19-20 (NAS)
As thousands participate in "40 Days of Prayer" for America, Henry Blackaby reminds us that the LORD has a heart for the nations. Please join him as he leads in prayer for revival throughout the nations, and praise the LORD because He hears our prayers!

Our Mission

"Let everyone call urgently (cry mightily) on God..."
Jonah 3:8 (NIV)
God gave Jonah a mission: "Go to Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me." (Jonah 1:2). After Jonah ran away from the LORD, God dealt with his disobedience. Distressed, Jonah cried out the the LORD, and repented. The LORD delivered him from the belly of the fish.
Again, God told Jonah to go to Nineveh. Jonah obeyed, proclaimed: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned." The Ninevites believed God. They declared a fast and put on sackcloth (Jonah 3: 4-5). The king issued a proclamation to fast, turn from evil, and urgently call on God (Jonah 3: 6-9). God saw what they did and had compassion. The LORD spared them from destruction (Jonah 3: 10).
Like Nineveh, our nation has sinned against the LORD. Pray that we, as a nation, will humble ourselves, turn from our wickedness, and call urgently on the LORD. Our God is gracious and compassionate; slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity (Jonah 4:2).
As Praying Grandmothers, our mission is to pray for our grandchildren and the world they live in. And their world, looks much like Nineveh. We have two opportunities before us:
  • "If My People 2012" - Commit to pray for America for 40 days leading up to our national election. Sign up at You will receive emails with each day's prayer topic.
  • "40 Days for Life" - Christians meet to peacefully stand and pray in front of local abortion clinics. Pray for God's grace and mercy, rather than protest.

Thank you for your praying hearts!
