04.29.11 – PRAYER UPDATE!

The Helms family has a prayer request that has come about because of our journey alongside Peter this past year and a half.

We found out this week of a recently aired program on the Dr. Phil daytime TV show. The guest he hosted on his show was a mother of two severely disabled adult children. She was arguing for her right to decide to have them euthanized. Dr. Phil, as a cultural commentator, was open and sympathetic to her comments. At the end of the show, he asked for a show of hands of those who would support her in her desire to do away with her children. Almost everyone there raised their hands. . . .You can find the program online.

Three days after this show aired, we were contacted by someone from Glenn Beck TV. Mr. Beck, a prolife conservative, wants to do a show for his program expressing the other side of the issue. So he is gathering around twenty couples who have disabled children to appear on his show and talk about the blessing that their children are, the sanctity of their lives, and their commitment to their children’s care. Doug and Selah were asked to be among those interviewed for the recording of the show this coming Tuesday. The show is scheduled to air the following Friday.

So we ask you to pray for us, that we will be filled with the Spirit and speak that day for Christ, for life and for the inherent beauty of a life such as Peter’s right now. When he could talk, Peter himself was always zealous for the prolife cause. May the Lord use him still as a silent spokesman to shout the value of life.
