A few months ago I was watching the movie Amazing Grace about the life of William Wilberforce, and suddenly, faith burst into my heart that public opinion could indeed be changed! We have faithfully run a Bound4LIFE chapter in Orlando for the last three years, but I have to admit, although I have given much of my time to this issue, I never had faith that things could actually change until one night when God broke into my own heart.
I believe the Lord has released a strategy for the nation that, at first glance, looks like a step backwards. For the nation to shift, the regions must press forward. A few months ago, I began studying the early history of America and the Continental Congress, a time in our history when the convention of delegates truly spoke on behalf of their region. The future of what would become the nation was at stake. Today, we find ourselves in this same place yet again. The future of America is at stake, literally. The regions must raise their voices. The regions must press forward. The regions must stand for life.
As we pray for our national government to uphold life, we have a responsibility in our own region to be a witness. After all, abortions are not happening in the Supreme Court building, they happen in our neighborhoods! The church is required to be the conscience of America. Let’s start in our own backyards.
This is a call to action! On May 1, thousands will gather in silent prayer from 10 am-12 pm, covering every abortion center in Florida. We will lay aside our denominational differences and preferences to be the demonstration of justice for those who have no voice. We will come as a silent force with one message: LIFE.
If not now, when?
If not you, who?
To find a place where you can take a stand, we have a growing list of abortion centers on our website: www.Stand4LIFE.info.
A few weeks ago, we believed the number of abortion clinics was 63 in Florida. We are now discovering the number is closer to 90. Miami, a largely Hispanic city, is being targeted in a profound way by abortion. We have to stand with her in this fight for life.
On April 24, the Saturday before Stand4LIFE, thousands will gather from all over Florida at the University of Central Florida (UCF) Field to pray for our state. It’s time for Florida to come together and contend for our own region. We will lift our voice as one man and cry out to God. And He will hear from heaven and heal our land.
Please pray for Florida over the next weeks. Consider joining us for the prayer gathering on April 24, and standing on May 1 in your own region. There is something awesome about knowing we are all standing together, sending up an S.O.S. God, save our souls!

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine
