Let us pray for the state of New Mexico……the state is struggling in many ways, morally and economically. We are praying that New Mexico will stop allowing the murder of babies through abortion. What is not understood, that God cannot bless New Mexico when the state kills his babies? Albuquerque is the abortion Capital.
Stop abortion New Mexico and watch how God blesses the state.
2 Chronicles 7:14….if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
