Babies Voices – 11:11

babyandclockSpeak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…  {Proverbs 31:8}

They speak without a sound or word. Their voice is never heard. {Psalm 19:3}

On an ordinary day, I was washing dishes and suddenly this flood of emotions came over me. It brought me to my knees. The faucet was still running water from the sink, as my own tears began to fall down my cheeks. I began to weep uncontrollably for the babies in the womb, for the babies that are being aborted, for the babies that are silenced before their life begins.

This was the first time that I had experienced something this intense that arose from somewhere deep inside of me. A sense of urgency was felt. A call to action. A call to prayer. A burden for babies being aborted was implanted in my heart at that moment. At the time, I was unsure of the details and even where to begin. I just knew in my heart to pray for the babies. I was aware that something strong and powerful had just been deposited deep into my heart and spirit.  I trusted Jesus to unwrap the details and reveal His heart and plans that He had just planted inside of me. I returned to my dish-washing with tear stained cheeks and was in awe of what had just transpired.

The very next day, September 11, 2008 to be exact, the details began to unravel and be made known. I was driving down Carrol Blvd on my way to the Post Office at Southlake Town Square. I glanced in my rear view mirror to see a car fast approaching behind me and almost collided with me as I had to slam on my brakes to avoid smashing into the car in front of me. My heart almost dropped to the floor, since both of my children were in the car with me. Logan was a baby and I was concerned for my children’s safety as well as mine. My eyes were automatically drawn to the time on the dash.

It read 11:11. 

Instantly my heart knew that this eleventh hour and eleventh minute had significance.

A mental note was made. Remember this specific time of hour. It is of utmost importance.

We stopped by Piccomolo for a tasty snack and the lady working behind the counter told us all about the parade that was to be held in honor and remembrance of 9/11. Instinctively, my heart knew we should attend. Our family went together and stood in the grass and watched the Firefighters being congratulated and honored for their bravery, and heroic services and protection of our great city. Marines were also were standing in attention and on guard. Many floats and decorated buggies made their appearance at the parade.

One in particular stood out more than all the rest. It was a replica of the Liberty Bell with large monuments of the Ten Commandments on each side. People were encouraged to ring the Liberty Bell and declare Let Freedom Ring. With each ring of the bell, I could sense the demons covering their ears and cringing. Our family waited in line to ring the bell. As our turn approached, we each pulled the cord and heard the reverberating sound echo loudly in our ears. Felt this was a monumental moment, and was not even sure of the full significance at the time.

The timing of the Liberty Bell replica on location at Southlake that day, 9/11, along with the 11:11 time significance and the burden on my heart to pray for the babies to be saved. All of these peculiar pieces began to fit together. I knew the call to action was being laid out. Instructions were given to set my alarm on my phone for 11:11 daily to sound as a reminder to pray for the babies was given from heaven. I knew and felt this call deep down inside.

Pray for the babies in the womb.

Pray for the babies to be saved from abortion.

Pray for the mommies and daddies to choose life and their hearts to be soften.

Pray for life.

I began spreading the word and asking others to join in setting their alarms and praying for the babies too.

Babies Voices. 11:11. A baby movement was birthed. 

We can speak up for the babies in the womb, their voices are silent and can not be heard, but we can speak up and make our voices loud for them. We can declare LIFE, LOVE, and LIBERTY. We can be a voice crying out for them saying save my life. I am a baby. Choose life.

You too can set your alarm as a reminder to pray for the babies voices to be heard. Will you join us in sounding the alarm. The liberty bell will resound… Let Babies Live.

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. {Proverbs 31:8-9}
