Bound 4 Life

I may lose some readers because of this but I am willing to take the risk for something I believe in so strongly.
I have the honor to be a part of a Pro-Life Prayer Movement called Bound 4 Life.


*"Bound4LIFE is a grassroots prayer mobilization movement targeting the ending of abortion, the increase of adoptions and the reformation of government and society through spiritual awakening. Our mission is to mobilize a groundswell of prayer through:
“Silent Sieges” in front of courthouses and abortion clinics across the nation.
When LIFE tape is placed over our mouths, we are identifying with the silent screams of the unborn and of those who have no voice. Our stand is not a protest, but a silent prayer meeting. We make our appeal to the Judge of the earth and ask Him for speedy justice to be released. Oh that God would subpoena the conscience of the nation!
The media has taken hold of this image and spread it everywhere. It has quickly become a phenomenon that catches the eyes and hearts of the world.
In our silence, we intercede on behalf of our nation and cry out to God for mercy. It is a silence that speaks louder than words. We must build up this wall! May our tears soak the sidewalks, and may a silent cry go forth all over our land! " *

I want to make it clear that I stand for life in a non-violent way. Unlike other pro-life movements, this one focuses on prayer. I also am not against the women who have had abortions, I'm not even against the Doctors who perform them. I believe these women need love and healing and to know that those who stand for life are not standing against them. I am against the practice of abortion as an option. I fully believe that in my lifetime Roe v. wade will be overturned.

Some may disagree with my choice to post this but, this is something that is a part of our families life and I am not ashamed who knows it.

I think this is great. I've heard of silent sieges, but I never really learned much about the organization or what they do. I'm going to check out their website! :-)

I think it's great...I'm a firm believer in standing up for what you believe in and feel the same way about Pro-Life issues. Way to go!!

I have heard about this organization, and it's fascinating to me. I am really excited about the movement that is beginning to happen as a result and it's really awesome that you posted this. People need to start seeing this kind of thing happen with the attitude you have towards it.

G. Kudos to you for being bold about what you feel (know) is right! It's funny but for some reason this entire topic has been a heavy burden for me lately. Not sure if it is because of the political arena right now or because I am pregnant. Thanks for posting, I am really glad I was able to visit the website and learn more. Very informative and I believe effective in it's purpose!

G-wanted to thank you for posting this ...I had not heard of this organization and b/c you introduced me to it, I was able to find a local (sort of...2-1/2 hrs away) chapter and will be participating in the Silent Siege this coming weekend...March 22.

It is so important to never back down on the things we believe in. I have never heard of this organization before - sounds awesome. Really, really awesome.
