As part of Giving Tuesday, today we’re excited to release our annual Christmas picture (below). We like to say, the family that plays together, prays together. Our mission is simple yet significant: to mobilize a national grassroots movement who pray for the ending of abortion, carry the spirit of adoption and believe for revival worldwide.
Bound4LIFE has been on Capitol Hill for more than 11 years; yet today, the ministry has reached a point of urgent need. While a lot has happened in our first decade, much of what we have prayed about is converging right now.
Just weeks ago, we saw a significant prayer target emerge for 2016. After a years-long journey, which Bound4LIFE has been directly involved in, it’s official: the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to the recent Texas pro-life law.
The pro-choice side realizes the significance of this court case—calling it the most important abortion policy decision in 25 years. While most wait to see what happens next, we’re among the few who are committed to seeing it through in prayer.
It’s going to take more than politics for our nation to shift towards valuing every life, which is why we stand for the innocent ones through cultural and spiritual means.
More than 70 Bound4LIFE chapters nationwide are ready to stand in prayer—for this case, for the HHS Mandate cases also just accepted by the Supreme Court and for other critical life issues coming in 2016.

Week after week, our team prays in front of the Supreme Court with Life Tape… even as local chapters pray at courthouses and abortion centers across America. We explain to passersby who ask: “We’re praying for wisdom for the justices, for the value of every life to be reflected in law.” Court staff often see us from windows or when leaving their offices.
This public witness extends to our role in the pro-life movement. Elections are right around the corner, and we remain committed to praying for a pro-life President. Look closely and you may notice multiple pro-life candidates wearing the red Life Band.
Bound4LIFE is in the world—located strategically just a couple blocks from the U.S. Capitol—but not of it. The influence we have isn’t through lobbyist money or political power; instead, we bring current events and issues before God in prayer.
We know God has called us here; yet to mobilize prayer from the nation’s capital city carries great cost. As many voices compete to be heard on Capitol Hill, will you help elevate the voice of prayer?
On to the busy holiday season… As the colors of Christmas surround us, we celebrate the victories and events that checkered this past year.
Thankful for friends like you, our prayer is that the reality of God’s presence would be known in the year ahead.
