In 2004, my life was radically changed on a prayer journey with Lou Engle and seventy other young people fighting for the lives of unborn babies. Led by a prophetic dream, our journey ended in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC. There, for thirty-one days leading up to national Election Day, we stood in silent prayer with red tape over our mouths that said LIFE.
As I stood in silence in front of the court, I heard a song from heaven. God was singing over us, “Your voices will be heard in your silence”. Jesus hears the voices of the unborn even in their silence.
Can you hear the sound of Heaven? It’s breaking into the earth
It’s falling down like rain
Their voices and their cries
Their desire to live
And their voices will be heard in their silence
The cords of death encompassed them
The snares of death surrounded them
But He’ll send from on high
He’ll take them and He’ll draw them out of many waters And He’ll rescue them, because He delights in them
