NOW is a “due time” to not give up in the battle surrounding abortion, but instead advance in confidence.decreeing life.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10

“Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” Gal 6:9

I recently had a heart piercing prophetic dream in which I heard the cry for urgent, persistent prayer for life. In this season it is crucially important to not stop praying, and to not back down. The courts of Earth WILL hear the cry for justice from the courts from Heaven. There is a specific grace being released that is key for prayer and advancing forward in this season. This grace will bring influence and new attention from the media, attract many that have previously not openly stood for life, raise up a new breed of prayer warriors and movements, spark fresh grace over fostering and adoption and alternatives to abortion, open the ears of the courts of earth and impact law, and transform the face of activism.  As we ensure that our words, actions and prayers are bathed in this grace and love, and not from anger, previously deafened ears will hear the cry for life. Now is a time to keep standing, keep believing and keep praying as there’s a grace and momentum for major breakthroughs and reform. As we rightly celebrate wins, we must keep striking the ground in prayer until we see complete victory. Justice is being decreed from the courts of heaven. Charge ahead in boldness and confidence, not backing down.

I was acutely aware in this dream that all that I saw take place, was because of those who sacrificially and faithfully have gone before us. Every person who has stood for life is to be honoured.

“If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulder of giants” Isaac Newton

THE DREAM 

In the dream I saw entire families, men, women and children marching around a court. Each person was worshiping, praying and decreeing as they walked together. I could hear the crying of children very clearly and loudly. The cry was continual, intense and demanded urgent attention. The crying out was getting louder in my dream and was impossible to ignore. There was a multitude crying and the sound was unbearable to any compassionate heart.

The cry I heard was specifically from the unwanted children on earth. I was acutely aware this was a cry for justice of the multitudes of children now in heaven who had been aborted. This cry was heart piercing.

As in any dream, there is prophetic symbolism and I knew that I was observing a children’s home which represented heaven, and was full of love, peace and protection. These children were completely loved and completely secure in that love. They were now living in eternity and experienced no pain, no regret, no bitterness and no discomfort.  They were completely fulfilled and completely at peace in the joy and security of God’s love for them. It stood out to me, and is exceptionally important to note, there was no malice, bitterness or hatred toward their parents on earth. Only love. Only grace. Only tenderness. These aborted children LOVED their parents and desired for them to know that as they emulated their Heavenly Father.  They in fact joined the Father is desiring the fullness of their parents destiny. The unwanted on earth were not unwanted in heaven. They were very much embraced and lived in the magnificence of eternities family, where they neither missed out or felt without in any way which profoundly effected me.

However, they each knew that their voice still had power.  Their cry of pure love and grace still resounded from heaven calling for life on the earth. As part of the great crowd of witnesses, their voice still echoed today. Their short lives released a powerful cry for justice that the Father had heard.

The cry in my dream I heard did not come from pain.  The cry was birthed from a collective call for an army to arise on earth in one voice decreeing LIFE.  The cry I was hearing came from the courts of heaven trumpeting in a ground swell of warriors in the nations.  Their cry announced the beginning of the end to a season where the stronghold of abortion had the upper hand and they announced the day where abortion lost its grip. Their cry could no longer be ignored on the earth, and it demanded ears be opened and hearts be moved.

The cry of the unwanted was incredibly marked by grace. It demanded urgent attention and yet it equally carried a tangible grace which profoundly effected me. This grace was a mantle of due justice being released that propelled the life movement into accelerated favour. The longer I listened, the more their cry escalated in intensity.

Once again I was drawn to those marching around the court.  Their worship and prayer was anointed with breakthrough and powerful.  It was specifically directed toward releasing Heavens’ decree of justice for those aborted, but also those still to be born.

The crying was unrelenting, intense, and loud, and it could not be easily ignored yet I noticed in the dream, that many had drowned it out and had incredulously become deaf to the cry. There were many reasons for this, but regardless of the reason, I saw grace opening previously deaf ears.  Their cry WOULD BE HEARD.

DUE TIME FOR JUSTICE

Those who marched around the court could hear the intensity and urgency and their response  was to worship, pray and keep decreeing. Their ears were attuned to the cry for LIFE and they couldn’t ignore what they heard. There was a knowing “this is the appointed time.”  To not give up but instead advance in confidence. There was much noice trying to drown out the cry for justice but these ones knew it was only the noise breaking through resistance and refused to be distracted.  I understood that the cry I heard was an urgent call to prayer urging the body to decree life, and announcing a due time for justice.

BREAKTHROUGH PROPHETIC WORSHIP IS KEY

Breakthrough prophetic worship was key to seeing these walls come down in the courts of earth. As I observed those marching, their worship specifically carried joy and confidence. I wondered how they could decree with such grace and joy, until again I heard the unrelenting cry of the unwanted on earth and my ears were acutely aware of the sound of grace that didn’t just accompany their voice, but was intrinsically a part of their cry.  Their cry comes from another realm where God’s will is always carried out perfectly and in perfect love.  They have no fear. They have no doubt. Earth will hear their call for life. Father God was raising up a multitude upon multitude of warriors marked by the cry for life.

WE MUST PICK UP THE CALL FOR LIFE

I watched an entire family march together, singing, praying, holding hands whilst decreeing life. It was profoundly beautiful and compelling. Their faces were fierce but not angry. Their eyes carried grace, and a holy fire! They were marked by an unrelenting courage and determination.  As they marched and prayed, they picked up unwanted children and placed them on their shoulders. I understood that this was an invitation from Heaven to those who have stood back, to boldly pick up the cause of the cry for life. I saw even children picking up this call for life and powerfully shifting the atmosphere. The cry for life was a mountain that MUST be levelled now.  Future lives depend upon it.  This cry must not be ignored but picked up and carried until we see the mountain levelled.

AND THE GOVERNMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER

I am reminded of Isaiah 9:6,  “And the Government shall be upon His shoulder.”  

I watched as crying children were picked up by many and placed on their shoulders which I understood was God decreeing justice in the courts of heaven that WILL impact the courts of earth as we pick up and carry the call to decree justice and life. We are the head and not the tail and our decree carry the full authority of the King. Governments and high offices of influence will hear the cry for justice AS WE DECREE, WORSHIP and boldly ignore the taunts of Goliath.

I was aware of the truth that in the natural, the government truly shall be upon HIS shoulder.  There is no office on earth that is higher than His office as King. The Government of Heaven and the decrees of the King supersede the government of Earth every time. I was aware of the urgency of the hour to partner with God’s roar and decree life.

BREAKTHROUGH IS IN THE COURAGEOUS ADVANCING

This is key in this critical hour of marching around strongholds to see the grip of lies broken and life enthroned. I was aware that this was a KEY BATTLE FOR THE BODY.  This battle MUST be won. This fight for life was a PIVOTAL BATTLE that dethroned and dismantled significant strongholds. The enemy is determined to not lose this ground.  Much of the fear, distractions and demonic attack coming at the body fiercely right now, is designed to blind and keep us from confidently standing in truth and seeing this Goliath destroyed.  I was aware that the BREAKTHROUGH WAS IN THE COURAGEOUS ADVANCING FORWARD WITH GRACE.

GRACE WAS KEY AS WITHOUT GRACE MANY OF THE EARS WOULD REMAIN DEAF TO CRY FOR JUSTICE, AND MANY OF THE MOST EFFECTUAL WARRIORS WOULD REMAIN ON THE SIDE LINES BECAUSE OF SHAME. GRACE IS THE GAME CHANGER.  GRACE IS THE SECRET WEAPON.

GRACE IS A GAME CHANGER

GRACE was the game changer that is being released from heaven.  The war against life is one of the greatest battles of our time.  THIS BATTLE IS BIGGER THAN ABORTION as the ramifications will effect generations to come.  It’s a showdown between light and dark, life and death and every mountain of influence will be effected by the outcome.  Future looming giants that will have impact on the unprecedented last days harvest will be slayed by these giant slayers arising now. The cry from heaven is to recognise the window open NOW for advancing forward in unity must be acted upon.

GOD IS RAISING UP WOMAN CHAMPIONS OF JUSTICE

Back to the dream, my attention was now drawn to a beautiful, worshipping Mother.  This warrior  picked up a crying, five year old girl and put her horizontally across her shoulders. As the girl was five, she was not small and even in the dream this looked really awkward. I thought there must be an easier way to carry her. This Mum and Warrior then continued to march around the court, decreeing and worshipping all whilst carrying this crying child. I knew she was a mother of many, a mother of a new breed of warrior. God is raising up many powerful women warriors, many of whom from the hidden place, who will boldly champion justice.

I was transfixed by this warrior, and yet still aware of the sound of the unrelenting crying. I watched as she kept worshiping even as she carried the girl and marched, and the beauty, hope and power of this sound was compelling. The sound of hope not only released breakthrough, but was infectious and transferable, and was calling in others.

THERES A FRESH GRACE THAT WILL ENABLE WHAT SEEMS DIFFICULT TO BE CARRIED WITH EASE

What this woman was doing initially looked hard and awkward as she carried the girl horizontally on her shoulders. It was costing her something to pick this up, but I saw determination in her eyes that this was not only worth it, it MUST BE DONE. The girl looked too big and too heavy to be carried this way. But as I observed her carrying this weight, this woman made it look effortless, fun and beautiful.  She made picking up the cry for life look attractive, compelling and desirable. The ease with which she carried the cause released a grace for others to follow. She carried a contagiousness that even in my dream made me think, “why isn’t everyone doing this? It’s not that hard! It’s not as difficult as people think!  Is victory not before us?”  As she prayed, decreed and gracefully carried the cry of the unwanted MANY, yes MANY listened to her voice.

I saw many men, women and children join in marching. The sound of her voice and the sight of her marching with family, attracted the attention of the media. The media was captivated by the grace and boldness of her voice. She carried the cause with ease. Joy, hope and grace were heard in the streets and turned the heads of those watching. This sound of the collective hearts cry for justice attracted a fresh look from the media.  Her voice was compelling and influential as it carried grace. I knew grace was changing the landscape and would unlock the hearts of those who sat in the courts of earth and offices of influence.

CARRY GRACE

It was then, as only possible in a dream, I realised the 5 year old girl on her shoulders represented the many aborted.  I was suddenly aware HER NAME WAS GRACE.

Grace had beauty that was beyond this world, and I knew her name was incredibly significant. Her beauty was eternal, powerful and strong. She signified a fresh wave of grace for this battle.

I now understood why carrying Grace is essential to seeing the laws of the land shift. Grace was crucial.  Grace opened the door and compelled ears of the court to hear her voice for justice, as her voice was easily received and disarmed hardened hearts. I took note that Grace was not timid or ineffectual, but compelling and fierce despite being only a child.  The love she exuded demolished dark strongholds. The cry for life from heaven only continued to get louder even as I looked at her, and I noticed that many who had previously been deafened to her cry were now hearing it.

Grace rested on the cry for life and every voice who stood for life. Fearless courage and pure heaven-sent fire was being released from heaven. I watched heaven decree a new day of grace for justice where justice has seemed delayed.

Again, I was intently aware there was an urgency in the dream. I understood despite the dark shadows, there is grace to contend for life right NOW. This ripe for justice moment must be exploited.

HEAVENS GRACE RESTS ON THE WARRIORS WHO WILL STAND, SPEAK AND CONTEND

The hour is pregnant with justice. It was a “for such a time as this” moment. Heavens grace rests on the warriors who will stand, speak and contend. There’s a call to prayer from heaven that is  crying out for the future unborn generations SO THAT THEY MAY LIVE.

I could hear the cry’s from heaven of the precious voices of the aborted children joining the cloud of witnesses as they decreed grace on those alive now who will carry their legacy to see abortion’s grip demolished. The cry was intense.  The cry marked me and I knew it was marking a generation in numbers not previously seen. Had it not been for the heavenly grace in their cry I could not bear to listen any more. The cry of those lost to abortion had built and intensified over time. It seemed to me in the dream that all heaven anticipated the rising of this generation that would not turn back, and not give up in fighting to complete what others had begun. Life would triumph over death.

KEEP GOING. THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY IS OPEN

It was then I understood, there is a grace on the battle for life right now to see the laws change. This grace is releasing a fresh strength and vigour to keep going. This is why there is an urgency for now. Grace is available to those who will hear the cry and pick up the cause in prayer.  Now is an urgent window of time to boldly advance. As I listened, the sound of the cry was sounding more like a heart beat, to march to; a battle cry. It was the heart beat of Heaven. Something was changing. This battle cry was the call to prayer. This call to prayer was penetrating the wider church and the atmosphere was charged for reformation at a governmental level.

ACCEPTED THINKING OF THE DAY WILL SHIFT

Suddenly in the dream, my eye was drawn to an older man sitting on the steps of the court who I knew represented “the accepted thinking of the day.” His countenance was disinterested, tired and hardened. Even though he sat on the steps of the court his ears were deafened to the constant cry for life going on in front of him. His ears had become deaf to the sound of their cry. I was completely astounded and deeply saddened that the court had not heard the cry for justice as in the dream my ears were unable to ignore the cry.  I knew however, this would change.

THE CAUSE OF LIFE WILL CARRY A NEW SOUND

Then I noticed something different arising. A new sound was softening the hardest of hearts and transforming the face of activism and justice movements. (I must add this new face to activism in no way discredits of dishonours voices who have gone before. It’s a new wineskin I saw arising for for a new season that owes its harvest to seeds already sown. It’s a new mantle of grace that will add favour of those already championing the cause of life)

HEARTS WILL HEAR THE CRY FOR LIFE

The man sitting on the stairs was visibly being undone by the grace and love these movements were exhibiting in their call for life.  His own heart was encountering love which was healing offence and pain of the past.  He was encountering grace that disarmed him and opened his ears to hear a new sound. Hope filled me as I realised the man sitting on the steps of the court had begun to hear the cry for life.

At first it was faint and yet the more he saw that “Grace was on the shoulders” of those who carried the cause, the more he heard. His ears were hearing the cry of the unborn and was moved to see a new era ushered in.

As I looked back at him, I was overcome with grace for him. I became aware that he represented MULTITUDES whose ears had grown deaf for varying reasons, but were encountering God’s grace  in this season.

GRACE DEFEATS SHAME AND OPENS DOORS

I was again keenly aware GRACE WAS KEY IN THIS SEASON, AS WITHOUT GRACE MANY OF THE EARS IN HIGH PLACES WOULD REMAIN DEAF TO CRY FOR JUSTICE, AND MANY OF THE MOST EFFECTUAL WARRIORS WOULD REMAIN ON THE SIDE LINES BECAUSE OF SHAME. GRACE IS THE GAME CHANGER.  GRACE IS THE SECRET WEAPON.

A fresh wave of GRACE and weighty glory was the game changer that is being released from heaven.  Grace was healing hearts and strengthening voices as much as it was opening ears. A weighty glory was coming to heal brokenness especially surrounding abortion. Advocating life would partner with advocating grace.

LIFE INITIATIVES WILL BE BIRTHED

I looked ahead and saw grace over many initiatives birthed to support life.  Adoption, fostering and new initiatives I had no name for arose to support babies being born, and mothers to thrive. A new wave of grace healed the hearts of those who have been though abortion and destroyed shame.  This prompted  many to arise as warriors for life, whose voice had previously been stifled by shame and pain. I saw babies, babies, babies and I saw DESTINIES born that re-shaped our nations.

DON’T BE DISCOURAGED BY WHAT LOOKS LIKE CLOSED EARS RIGHT NOW

It was important to not become discouraged by what looked like closed ears right now, as God was lavishing grace on their hearts even now and opening the ears of those who sat in high places. Decree the deaf ears open. Pray for their hearts. Pray the ears of those who sit in the courts of earth will hear heavens call for life.

SOME OF THE LOUDEST DISTRACTORS WILL BECOME THE LOUDEST ADVOCATES

Some of the loudest voices for abortion, will become the greatest of advocates for life.  They are but one encounter away from personal transformation.

I see many having dreams, visions and encounters of their aborted children in heaven. This will impact their hearts with such deep grace that will be arise as fierce advocates of justice. They will encounter the God of grace and love.

GOD IS SHINING THE SPOTLIGHT ON HEALTHY FAMILY

The spotlight was coming on families who worshipped and prayed together. In the dream I saw families praying for life together and the spotlight coming on them. Media attention would highlight powerful women who walked in grace and divine authority. The media will show a different face of activism than they’ve shown before, a breed that battles in great wisdom and relevance for this generation. This strength and grace will disarm many hardened hearts and cause a re-thinking of values.  The call to persistent worship, intercession and prophetic declaration was opening the ears of those who carried the power to shift laws and community attitudes. I saw a new sound and new prayer movement that transformed activism and attracted a new wave of powerful, grace filled warriors that were marked by the fire of Elijah to break the stronghold of abortion.

JESUS IS CARRYING THE CRY OF THE UNBORN AND DECREEING JUSTICE

In the dream I was aware I was in the days to come, and I took another look at those who faithfully carried the call for justice and as I looked I saw Jesus.  Jesus looked at his faithful warriors with love and thankfulness. How dearly Jesus loved His faithful warriors for life… not a single effort had gone unnoticed and unrewarded by Him. I could still hear the crying and I was aware so did Jesus… the cry for justice was still ringing out.

I watched Jesus reach down and he picked up one of the crying children and put them on his shoulders. I then realised he was carrying the girl I knew in the dream as Grace on his shoulders. His heart carried them all. I knew Grace represented all those who had been aborted, and I knew Jesus put the cry of unwanted children on His Shoulders right in front of the court.  Jesus stood in front of the court and carried the cry for life right in front of the court.

IMMEDIATELY THE CRYING STOPPED IN THE DREAM!!!

The silence only magnified the enormity of the victory. As I watched I wept and as I looked and the fierce strength and grace of Jesus.

I began to hear a different sound of laughter and joy. The air felt clear, clean and crisp.

Just as the Government is upon His shoulders, Jesus is carrying this cry for life and decreeing a governmental shift.

GOD IS DECREEING SWIFT AND SUDDEN JUSTICE

I suddenly awoke, but as I was waking I was saying…..“AND THE CRYING STOPPED”

I saw a day of justice swiftly coming upon us. I awoke with a knowing that heaven was calling us to pray for life as the courts of heaven were decreeing a due season of justice.

PRAY PRAY PRAY AND THEN, PRAY
I knew we must keep praying….
The courts will hear the cry for justice that is coming from the courts of heaven

Psalm 8:2
You have built a stronghold by the songs of babies.
Strength rises up with the chorus of singing children.
This kind of praise has the power to shut Satan’s mouth.
Childlike worship will silence the madness of those who oppose you.

Proverbs 21:22
A warrior filled with wisdom ascends into the high place and releases regional breakthrough,bringing down the strongholds of the mighty.

OUR CALL TO PRAYER:
There’s a call to prayer and it carries grace for both the intercessor and all who are involved, but it equally carries a fierce breaker anointing for justice. Keep praying! The stronghold is breaking and the cry of the unborn will be heard. God is decreeing justice from the courts of heaven in the courts of earth. Carry grace, and charge the gates.

Be very blessed, and infused with His Grace.
