WICHITA, Kansas, July 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- As the sun sank of over the Kansas prairie, the grassy glade at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas Rivers came to life with energetic praise and worship music and prayer that focused on repentance for the sin of abortion.
A group of 570 mostly young people gathered Sunday evening at the Wichita Awakening to accept the challenge from Norma McCorvey, the former "Roe" of Roe v. Wade, that those born after the 1973 Supreme Court decision should partner with her generation to see an end to abortion.
About three hundred of the young people were from The Cause, which is conducting "God's Summer of Love" across America to pray for repentance from the sins and excesses of the previous generation on the 40th anniversary of the 1967 "Summer of Love."
Rev. Pat Mahoney shared that he believes that God is ministering to him that we are in a time of breakthrough that will soon see an end to abortion.
Notorious abortionist George R. Tiller was recently charged with 19 criminal counts of committing illegal late-term abortions. However, he is still operating his infamous abortion mill and Operation Rescue says there is reason to believe that he is committing late-term abortions for trivial reasons in further violation of the law.
Monday, the Cause will spend the day at Tiller's late-term abortion mill, beginning at 8:30 AM. They will be back to the Mid-American Indian Center for a final Praise and Worship concert to end the Wichita Awakening, which is scheduled to run from 7 PM to midnight.
Operation Rescue is hosting the event.
