Day 12: At Risk - Reminiscere

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.


Of the various reasons that mothers abort their children,
                none stem from natural emotions.

Rather, hopelessness and fear override motherly instincts.

Often this hopelessness and fear
                is incited by the very ones who should be shielding her from them.

    The father,

friends and
medical professionals...

can either fuel their fear of the world;
or, in the fear of God, renew their hope.

This week, we look to address some of those fears that put children at risk.
Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have blessed us with the joy and care of children.  As we bring them up, give us calm strength and patient wisdom that we may teach them to love whatever is true and good, following the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. (128).
