Prayer for the Tiller trial

Well, today was an intense day.  We went with our JHOP (also Bound4Life) friends to Wichita, KS (about a 3 hour drive).  There we stood "on the wall" of intercession, with LIFE tape on our mouths, and prayed from 8am-5pm for God to bring forth justice in the case of a man named George Tiller.  Tiller is responsible for tens of thousands of abortions, many of them late-term and partial birth abortions.  He's one of the most well-known abortionists in our nation.  He has been charged with performing 19 abortions without proper signatures.  Minor technicalities, say we who know the real crime is the murder of so many innocent lives.  But the fact is that if he is convicted on these 19 counts, he could lose his medical license and receive anywhere from 19 years to life in prison.  His clinic would be shut down, and lives would be saved. 

His defenders are claiming he is innocent, and are now pleading with the judge and jury about how compassionate a man Tiller is, and how the medical field needs such a good and benevolent doctor.  And truthfully, people who interact with him describe him as kind and compassionate.

What we are praying against is not the man, George Tiller, but the spirit of death that is working through him.  God, give this man a revelation of the value of a human life.  We have a window here to see his practice ended and many lives saved.  

The case will be in court this week, ending as soon as Monday, but possibly as late as Friday.  Please pray with us that the judge and jury in that court would be bound to issue the judgments that God is issuing from His throne.  Pray that God would release faithful witnesses in the courtroom, who cannot speak lies but will expose every dark and truthful thing.  Pray for mercy for this man, and for America.  And that righteousness would be the victor in this battle.

I encourage you to research George Tiller for more information on his trial.  Stay informed so you know how to pray.  :)
