Today the Paralympics begin and I hope you’ll be able to watch. The media often does backstories on the athletes that are nothing short of inspiring. You’ll see athletes up close and personal who excel in sport despite their physical disability. In many cases these talented people were prime candidates for abortion, but are now blessing others with their talent. Please keep Marieke Vervoort in your prayers. This Belgian suffers from a daily painful spinal disease. She won gold and silver in London but is considering euthanasia after the games because it’s legal in Belgium. Please pray the Lord would send earthly angels to touch her heart and see the joy in being a child of God. So watch. Be inspired. And pray for Marieke. Everyone is a gift from God.
