Two things Jesus asserts: The devil is a liar and a murderer. This unbelievable letter from Planned Parenthood lies to promote murder. It also proves Shakespeare knew what he was talking about when he said:
“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.”
“But ’tis strange:
And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,
The instruments of darkness tell us truths,
Win us with honest trifles, to betray us
In deepest consequence.”
He could have been writing with Planned Parenthood in mind. Attached is a recent “pastoral letter” advocating abortion. It is sick but shows the desperation of an organization that cannot exist without lies. Don’t be misled; Scripture and Christian teaching both prohibit abortion, and yes, God is present with all and offers forgiveness and grace. Christians are needed to pray, speak up and act on behalf of unborn children.
Planned Parenthood has removed the letter from their site, but it can be read in this article: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/06/02/planned-parenthood-letter-from-dedicated-pro-choice-clergy-has-a-message-about-the-bible-and-abortion/

A Prayer for Deliverance
By Faith C from FaithWriters@www.faithwriters.com
Lord God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I bring you ___ who has a need of deliverance
I ask on their behalf for Your Hand of Mercy and Compassion
I ask for a total deliverance of mind, body and spirit
I ask to break away the powers and shackles of the enemy that bind them
I ask for a healing of their wounds and sorrows and a renewal of their spirit
I ask that you will meet all their needs and will reveal Your love to them in a special way today
I ask for an increase in faith and trust in You
I ask that You help them to be an over comer in all things
I ask that You bless them and keep them safe
I ask that You shine Your light in them and around them
Thank You O God, in Jesus Name I pray—Amen
O Come, O Holy Spirit, come!
Come as holy fire and burn in us,
Come as holy wind and cleanse us,
Come as holy light and lead us,
Come as holy truth and teach us,
Come as holy forgiveness and free us,
Come as holy love and enfold us,
Come as holy power and enable us,
Come as holy life and dwell in us.
Come, Holy Spirit, and increase in us your gifts of grace
Convict us, convert us,
Consecrate us, until we are wholly yours
And Transform us into the image of Christ. Amen
Father I come to you in the name of Jesus who by his death, resurrection and ascension defeated all of the powers of sin, death and Satan. I ask you to clothe me in the full armor of God. I place upon my head the helmet of salvation by which I take my thoughts captive to the anointing of my Lord Jesus. I submit my mind to the control and rule of the Holy Spirit that it would be full of life and peace. I reject the thoughts, accusations and lies of the enemy who comes to condemn and criticize. I reject thoughts of self-hatred, failure, pride and other sinful attitudes. I reject any thoughts, imaginations or pretensions that contrast your loving thoughts toward me. I place upon my heart the breastplate of righteousness. I clothe myself in the perfection of Jesus and reject any false images of myself that are contrary to the way that you see me in the beauty and holiness of Jesus. I accept and declare that I am your righteousness, O God, in Jesus Christ. I place about me the belt of truth and pray that your Holy Spirit would lead me into all truth. I refuse to be led astray by the lies of the deceiver or my own sinful nature. Help me to walk and to worship in Spirit and truth. Help me to base my life on your word that is truth. As shoes on my feet, I secure my footing with the readiness of the gospel of peace and of the kingdom of God and Jesus Christ.
I stand on the rock of Jesus that cannot be shaken. Help me to know and understand your word and to base my life on your good news and not to be overcome by any bad news, anxieties of this life, fear of loss or by the temptations of this world. I take in my hand the shield of faith by which I shall block all of the attacks of the enemy. Grant me faith Lord to walk according to your promises and your eternal presence. Remind me that you are an ever-present help to me and that your promises are all “Yes” to me through Jesus. I take in my other hand the sword of Spirit, the word of God that is sharp and double-edged and shall never pass away. Inspire me to speak your powerful, life-giving word into my circumstances, against the enemy, into my own mind and life. Help me to speak blessings over my life and over my loved ones.
Father place upon me your garment of praise and help me to rejoice in the Lord always. I receive the joy of the Lord that is my strength. Lord send and empower your angels to minister to me and to be a shield around me. Father protect me from evil and rebuke every messenger of evil from me. Let the light of your face shine upon me and fill me with your Holy Spirit, his fruit and gifts. Make my home a peaceful, secure, restful and godly dwelling place. Bless and place your hand upon my family.
In the name of Jesus, I reject and resist Satan and every demon and command any evil spirits to leave my presence, my family and my church. I bring the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ between me and you. The Lord rebuke you and send you away.
Father I declare to you, myself and the entire world that I am your beloved child who belongs to you. Help me to love you, serve you, worship you and share your love with all around me, so that your name would be praised and glorified. I pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
