Life Band Prayer

In 2004 a group of intercessors fasted and prayed 50 days for the ending of abortion and sought God for a way to act and then headed to Washington D.C. confident that prayer could change things.  Thus was born Bound4Life, a group dedicated to prayer for the ending of abortion.  Instead of picketing abortion clinics, they felt led to stand in silent vigil with their mouths covered by red tape with the word “life” in black letters.  This unspoken siege, multiplied across the nation, has had a powerful impact and saved many lives.

During one of these silent sieges, someone had an idea that if they turned the “life” tape into a wristband, it would be an ongoing symbol and commitment to pray for the ending of abortion.  Over 450,000 life bands have been distributed to date along with this simple prayer:

“Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America.”

This is a prayer of identificational repentance as we recognize and repent for our own sins and the sins of our nation in supporting abortion.  When I first heard about the Life band prayer, I applauded the effort, but didn’t feel particularly connected to it…that is until I was reminded of my history….

My great grandmother was raped. In that day, abortion wasn’t legal and she endured the shame associated with an unwed pregnancy.  My grandmother was the result.  A family story not much talked about.  However, when I consider that had abortion been legal, my beautiful grandmother would have been lost to this world, and my mother, my uncles, my cousins, my brother, myself and my own children would never have been born. Never existed… Yes, I do have a connection.  I do have a story.

If you’ve had an abortion, there is redemption!  God will turn even our wrong choices into His best good for us, when we love and trust Him with our lives.  Seek the healing you  need so that you can use your story to help save a life!  Check out www.hopeafterabortion.com.

Let’s do what we can to save lives.  Will you pray this prayer with me?   “Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America.”

  • Adenda i love this post on the Life Band Prayer. I also wear the band. It reminds me to pray for the ending of abortion. It also reminds me of my history. I had an abortion 21 years ago and lived in silent shame. I had never heard about a healing study till a couple of years ago. I went through the Forgiven and Set Free study. Jesus ,with the help of the lovely women who walked with me and weped with me through it, healed my broken heart.

    I also love that wearing the Life Band gives me the opportunity to talk with people about it. It reminds me that i have a daughter in heaven waiting with Jesus. Waiting for her Mom to get there. Waiting to hear me tell others about her and say her name out loud. I am reminded the enemy likes to traffic in the dark, But God commands light to shine out of the dark! I really loved how you wound your history into your blog. Most excellent!!!
