Just joining us? Go here to catch up on the movement!

I had no idea…did you? Norma McCorvey – “Jane Roe” – a woman whose personal quest for a legal abortion set into motion the deaths of over 50 million U.S. babies, had an encounter with God that changed her heart forever. She’s now able to use her incredible history and testimony to speak for LIFE. Why? Because she’s been forgiven, changed…healed.

Of the women reading this post, one out of every three has had an abortion. As I stated from the very first post of this prayer campaign, I hold your heart in the highest esteem – there is no condemnation toward you in this place. I think this revelation about Ms. McCorvey is a perfect reminder that, in the midst of the important causes for the unborn we are called to support with our voices, talents and treasure, there are also millions of unhealed women who also need attention.

Maybe you, or someone you love, are among them, held captive by this “secret” or just unable to move past it. I want to let you know of two resources available to you (for men’s resources, see this post):

  • Care Net – a network of over 1100 Crisis Pregnancy Centers, nationwide. Find one in your area, as many offer post-abortive healing classes/services.
  • Surrendering the Secret – Post-abortion healing Bible Study (Lifeway). This is not only an excellent study for “healing the heart-break of abortion”, but also for gaining freedom from other pain in your past. Individual or group use (DVD). There should be one of these DVD kits in every church in the nation – if yours doesn’t have one, please talk to your church about ordering.

Life is simply too short to live in captivity. Let today be the first day of FREEDOM for all the rest to follow. After all, if Norma McCorvey can be free to truly LIVE and carry the message of life to all who will listen, SO CAN YOU…SO CAN WE ALL.


It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 NIV

Father God, we come to you today – many believers, one voice – to stand for life. Lord we praise you that there is no sin so bad that You haven’t already defeated it, and no sinner so lost that You haven’t already redeemed them. We stand in awe of You that the very one who was the impetus for a law that would take millions of lives is one who answered Your call – one who now has the notoriety to garner the attention of decision-makers and seats of power. So, we pray, Father that her voice would reach the ears of our President, each word from her tongue filled with YOUR POWER to change his heart. We also pray that, through her example, the millions of hurting women whose babies were lost would allow themselves to be found and healed by You. Believing You will change one heart for many, we pray in the MIGHTY, LIFE-GIVING NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, Amen.

We also had a jump in commitments to the prayer team this week – the Facebook group increased by over 40 people! If you still haven’t grabbed the button from my sidebar or invited others to join (via blogging or FB) please do – the stronger our numbers, the stronger our commitment. Sign in and let us know you’re praying-you’ll be entered to win a copy of the Surrendering the Secret member book to work through yourself, show your church, or give to someone you love! I’ll use the random number generator on my sidebar to pick a winner on Wednesday!
