After 50 days of round-the-clock corporate prayer and ( http://bound4life.com ) fasting before the 2004 elections, a group of prayer warriors, young and old alike, packed up their sleeping bags and headed to Washington, DC, filled with purpose and confidence that prayer could change the course of a nation. Their goal: the ending of abortion and the spread of revival.
In a dream during an extended fast, one of them had seen the image of their mouths covered by tape inscribed with the single word LIFE. For 31 days they stood at the United States Supreme Court in silent prayer with Life Tape. In their silence they identified with the silence of the preborn who have no voice to defend themselves. Their prayers rose day after day to the court that’s higher than the highest court in the land. At that time it was 31 days of prayer for 31 years of legalized abortion in America (Ez 4:4-8). What was birthed during those days of intercession has continued to impact the entire nation, as well as other nations.
It’s clear is that God is looking for people to “stand in the gap” because of the holocaust of abortion (Ez 22:30). It must be a committed, ongoing stand with the intention to remain until justice is released. If you go to the Supreme Court today, you’ll find a company still there. Through rain, blizzards and scorching heat they have never abandoned this “silent siege” against the ideology of abortion—against the political agendas—against the spiritual power structures that prop up the abortion industry (Ez 4:1-3). They are there until the Judges reverse the decree of death.
It’s spreading. What started in DC has now become a movement.
