Jeremiah Johnson is a nationally recognized prophetic voice in this nation as well as author, teacher, and founder of Maranatha School of Ministry in Lakeland, Florida. In a recent Facebook post, Johnson shared about how the students from his school regularly pray in front of their local abortion clinic. Their prayers have now opened the way for a radical solution. This is a great example of “intercessory activism.”
A GENERATION OF PROPHETIC ACTIVISTS
“For those of of you following our journey to raise up a generation of prophetic activists at Jeremiah Johnson Ministries, we want to share a little more of our journey today.
We are not only committed to standing outside of our local abortion clinic to pray and see lives saved, but we are also dedicated to becoming part of the solution. Just a few months ago, a young African American woman went in the clinic to have an abortion and decided to come back out to us because she just couldn’t do it. Sparing all the details, we ended up getting her an apartment, leading her to Jesus Christ, and now she is giving birth to a beautiful LIFE!
Desiring to contribute even more, we have now personally given tens of thousands of dollars toward the purchase of the building directly next to the abortion clinic. Why you might ask? Because our precious Christian friends at “Options for Women” had a God sized dream to buy the property next door to the abortion clinic and offer free healthcare and options to pregnant women in crisis. It has been such an incredible blessing to not only take our stand for LIFE, but to practically get involved in a much greater way. We hope you will pray about doing your part too in ending the greatest holocaust the world has ever known.” (October 17, 2019)
Praise God for examples like this that demonstrate the power of united prayer and a willingness to become a part of the solution on the local level.
