People of faith in Washington, DC and Baltimore, Md., are dedicating nine days from July 30th to August 2nd, "Summer of Mercy", to pray for Leroy Carhart and for an end to abortion.

You will recall that Carhart is an advocate of late-term abortion (a procedure that most Americans strongly disagree with) and recently set up shop outside of the nation's capitol after a pro-life state law on fetal pain ousted him from Nebraska. Since that time people have gathered daily in front of the facility where he performs abortions, Germantown Reproductive Health Services, to peacefully and prayerfully protest the destruction of life in the womb.

Summer of Mercy includes "24/7 prayer and worship, inspiring evening rallies with national political and Christian leaders and cutting edge public events." For more information, click here.

If you cannot participate in the events, consider spiritually uniting with Summer of Mercy by praying from home or work for the defense of our helpless and weak unborn.
