The innocent blood of the tiny babies whose bodies are broken and crushed by abortionists cries out to God for justice. But Jesus also shed His innocent blood for us, and allowed His body to be broken for us. Through the grace He pours out for us, we can now pour out our own lives for the “least of these” innocent little children, at our local “Calvary,” the FPA abortion chamber.
The song Broken for Me was inspired by the movie the Passion of the Christ, reflecting on how abortion relates to the suffering and sacrifice of Christ. Audio for this song can be found on ReverbNation.com.
On surgical abortion days during the 40 day vigils, we place memorial crosses outside Bakersfield’s abortion chamber, bearing the names of tiny babies who were just killed. Deep in their hearts, the mothers and the fathers know that their children who died were very real, and we name the babies to help them acknowledge that fact (which is a necessary aspect of the healing process). This song focuses on not just the significance of the aborted baby’s name, but also on the way the fathers of the aborted babies suffer. As this video shows, post-abortion trauma can threaten the lives of the aborted baby’s parents.
Although as we read in Jeremiah 23, some local shepherds may refuse to protect the vulnerable little sheep in their flock, we can confidently join with the voices of the little children as we declare “my Deliverer is coming!” As this song says “I will never doubt his promise, though I doubt my heart, I doubt my eyes!” Let us not lose faith in Him, but continue to confidently believe that as He calls us to pray “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” He will end the killings here.
This song has been around for a long time (even the video has been around now for a long time) but its message is still relevant. It features amazing ultrasound images of a baby God saved during our Spring 2010 40 Days for Life campaign. We have made several versions of this video, but this is the version with Spanish subtitles, in honor of our many Spanish-speaking vigil volunteers.
It is appropriate to sympathize with young men and women who feel that they are not “ready” to care for the child who is growing in the womb (as Romans 12:15 commands, “rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with … Continue reading →
Before Jordan was born, we made plans to adopt him. But once his mother Jackie saw his precious face, any thoughts of adoption immediately vanished. Knowing Jackie and Jordan has definitely been one of the biggest highlights of ministry for … Continue reading →
Many couples contact us yearning to adopt a child, but few of them are willing to come to the front lines to plead for the lives of the children being killed. Frankly, the pain of seeing so many women reject … Continue reading →
God has a special plan, not only for each of us as individuals, but also for our cities (as we can see throughout the letters of Paul and the letters to the seven churches in John’s book of Revelation). God … Continue reading →
