Pray Today

... for the soul and family of Shawn Humphries, the 1000th person to be killed by our government since the re-instatement of the death penalty in the US thirty years ago. Shawn will die today.

The taking of sacred human life, which is invested with God by inviolable dignity from conception to natural death, in a society where capital punishment is neither necessary nor expedient, is intolerable. Christians everywhere should continue their well founded protest against the death penalty in our society.
