Christians have been praying for years that abortion would come to an end. Specifically, ever since 1973 when Roe v. Wade was decided, codifying abortion into US law, Christians have been praying that it would be overturned. It can be easy to give up hope — if we our guard down. 49 years of earnest prayer went by before we saw our requests realized! We must continue in our faith, crying out to our God, trusting Him to work.
