The Three Petitions of Our Prayer for a New Pentecost
In the 1st petition, we ask our Father in heaven to "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors" (Mat. 6:12) for tempting us. In the election of AD 30, the chief priests and elders tempted the people to be complicit with them in Deicide by voting for Barabbas to be released instead of Jesus Christ (Mat 27:20). Today, politicians tempt us to be complicit with them in prolicide by voting for them. Once they are in power, they again tempt us to be complicit with them in prolicide, this time by giving them blood money, a percentage of tax dollars that they intend to spend on prolicide. The reason why those things would make us complicit in prolicide is because there is a way that we can stop prolicide, and our Father in heaven has shown some of us that way. We need to show that way to our debtors instead of giving them blood money, so that they will know that they do not have to keep tempting us to be complicit with them in prolicide.
The 2nd petition was that of our Lord Jesus Christ, who while hanging from the cross, petitioned his Father to forgive his killers, since they did not know that they were killing the Christ (Luke 23:34). Our second petition is for God to forgive our debtors, since they do not know how to stop prolicide. Even though we are not the ones being killed by prolicide or by crucifixion, our second petition is appropriate, because we are asking God to forgive our debtors for tempting us to be complicit with them in prolicide. It's also appropriate, because prolicide is the antithesis of the Cross, being that it's the sacrifice of a father's offspring unto the forgiveness of an opposite debt, the debt of the father to his offspring instead of the debts of God's adopted offspring to their Father. Here's one other reason why it's appropriate. Jesus said that whatever we fail to do for the least of his brethren, we fail to do for him (Mat. 25:34-46). So, if we fail to stop unborn offspring from being killed, it's as though we again fail to stop Jesus Christ from being crucified.
In the 3rd petition, we thank our Father for teaching some of us (Isa. 54:13, John 6:45) how to stop prolicide (through the Right to Choose Life Act). Then, we ask him to teach the rest of us how; because we cannot do anything without Jesus Christ (John 15:5), and that includes teaching our brothers and sisters how to stop prolicide. Ultimately, it was the Holy Spirit, rather than Peter, who taught the gospel of Christ to the people on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:22-36). The 2nd petition is not answered until the 3rd petition is answered, because it was not until Pentecost, when 3000 Barabbas voters were made sorry in a godly manner (Acts 2:37, 2Co. 7:8-9) that they repented and received the forgiveness of their sins (Acts 2:38, 2Co. 7:10), the very thing that Jesus asked for from the Cross (Luke 23:34). Every time someone comes to repentance, by learning how to stop prolicide through the Right to Choose Life Act, a little Pentecost takes place and we should thank God for it. Therefore, we thank God for teaching all who have signed the petition for the Right to Choose Life Act.
