60,662,601 Number of votes for Obama, for Second Term (Popular Vote - Google Search "2012 Election results")
54,559,615 Number of Abortions since 1973 - Roe V. Wade
These numbers are based on reports by the Guttmacher Institute 1973-2008 and an estimate of 1,212,400 for 2009-2011. GI estimates a possible 3% under reporting rate and this is factored into the total as well.
These are sobering, mind numbing numbers. How is this even possible? We won't know the answer until we look into scripture and see what God says about it, in particular what He says about these last days.
60 million folks voted to continue murdering innocent, voiceless children.
60 million folks voted to 'sweep under the rug' the near 60 million dead babies - our nations children.
60 million voted to make that horrific number 60 million dead babies and increasing. Nearly one dead baby for one Obama supporter. DO you realize this number, the 55 million dead babies, eclipses ALL Wars fought since Americas inception (1,309,000) until now, the Nazi holocaust against the Jewish people (more than 6 million) and all genocide committed in this land towards the native Indians, black Americans (during the days of public enslavement) and other.
How many must die in the name of 'choice'? When will > 60 million hands that shed innocent blood be satisfied? How long, O Lord, how long?
However, there are some who will not rest. It is their duty to intercede and stand in the gap. Part of the duty of these so few, is to stand; to Go, Stand and Speak all the words of this life, to plead for souls and to proclaim the salvation of the Lord. The other part is to remind God of the abominations committed in the land, to plead with Him to "take it personally." It is their duty to "give [them]selves to prayer" (Psalm 109) and to remind the Lord of the iniquity in the land that, they may "be before the Lord continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth, because that he remembered not to show mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he migh even slay the broken in heart." (Psalm 109).
O God, the multitudes who call themselves christians do not see the need nor requirement to participate in intercession or prayer nor to stand in the gap, lay their lives on the line and plead for all to come to the feast, but let me NOT be counted in their number, nor in their final destruction but be found worthy to suffer for Thy name sake.

A woman's hardest lot!
(Timothy Shay Arthur, "Lovers and Husbands. A Story of Married Life" 1847)
No man is able fully to meet and reciprocate a true woman's love. The best of men, with all their willingness, with all their efforts, fail. There are deep places of her heart unreached--aching voids unfilled. And yet it is astonishing how small a return will seem to satisfy a woman, and make her heart glow with sunlight. A pleasant word, a tender look, a kiss of love--ah! these seem but small returns for the deep tenderness that ever burns in her bosom! And yet, alas! too often even these are withheld--and the selfish, reserved, cold, and at times morose "lord of creation," comes in and goes out daily--never dreaming that by this very coldness, reserve, and moroseness--he is breaking the heart of her who loves him better than her own life!
But it is ever so. Hundreds, thousands, yes, tens of thousands of wives, are performing their round of duties hourly and daily--unblessed by smiles that warm the bosom, or words that make the heart tremble with inner joy; while, all unconscious of their cruel indifference--those who provide fine houses, fine furniture, and fine garments for their victims, proudly imagine that they are the best of husbands!
Maiden--innocent, loving maiden!--do not turn away from this picture now, or else the time may come when you will seek to turn from it, and shall not be able. When one comes asking your love--know well if he is worthy of such love as you can give. Do not look alone at his attractive exterior; seek to know what ends actuate him. It is the loveliness of pure, high principles that remains verdant the longest--yes, forever verdant. These, and these alone, can make you permanently happy. Without them, an angel's grace, an angel's form would lose its attractions; with them, the plainest exterior soon grows beautiful to the eye of a loving wife. Lay this up in your heart; think of it in the morning, and when your head presses your pillow at night. It may save you from a woman's hardest lot--that of being bound for life to a man who does not even try to make her happy!
