Fetus Dolls Given to Children at Prayer Conference
Changing the World Thru Prayer Conference
"A person is a person no
matter how small he is."
Horton, a kind-hearted elephant, created by Dr. Seuss, is the only inhabitant of the jungle who is capable of hearing the Whos, a microscopic race of beings whose entire civilization exists on a speck of dust. Mocked and abused by those who refuse to believe in the tiny Whos, Horton must ultimately join them in a bold plan to prove the tiny beings' existence, and thus save their civilization from destruction.
Such was the prophetic platform Lou Engle shared with the children as he read the entire poetic journey of Horton. The classic line in Seuss's writings about those tiny beings who must be saved was, "A person is a person no matter how small he is." With that Lou showed the children models of life-size fetuses to make his point about the urgency of ending abortion in America.
Kids Were Moved to Tears
The children were spell-bound by Lou's message, and were captured with the desire to do something about the atrocity of shedding innocent blood that has blighted the American landscape. They eagerly waved their life bracelets, grabbed the microphone, and with tears streaming down their faces cried out to the Lord to end the killing. They energetically prayed with Lou, "Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of this nation. End abortion and send revival to America!" pledging to pray that prayer every time they looked at their bracelets.

Fetus Dolls Used as Prayer Tools
Guest speaker Irma Chon brought about 100 three inch plastic dolls that were the actual size of a twelve-week-old fetus and handed them out to the children to use as prayer tools. Many of them wrapped the tiny babies in a small American flag, held them high in the air and wept as they prayed. A nine-year-old girl took the microphone and cried repeatedly, "Who wouldn't want a baby?" Her prayer ripped through our hearts and weeping could be heard everywhere.
Lou Engle Asked If He Could Come to This Conference
Lou announced to the group that he had asked if he could be a part of the three day School of Prayer for Kids when he heard about it. He said that he has only done that a few other times in his career. But he believed with all of his heart that an entire prayer movement of children was going to be birthed as a result of this conference. The purpose of the prayer movement, he believes, will be to overturn Roe vs. Wade. He believes that prophetically because it is children who are being slaughtered through abortion that it will be children who reverse the tide. He cited some prophetic experiences that led him to this conclusion.
Will You and Your Children Join the Movement?
What does a children's prayer movement to end abortion look like? Who leads it? Who keeps it going? Who organizes it? We did not do anything at the conference to rally and organize kids, ask them to sign up, lead groups at home etc. We feel it must be done by the Spirit of God. There are actually a number of children's prayer movements around the world. Esther Ilnisky leads one called the Children's Prayer Network. At one time she had signed up over a million children as intercessors. But this one is to have a narrow focus--the ending of abortion. Will God raise up specific leaders of children or adults, or will it simply be a grass roots effort that we just continually hear about children who are praying for this end? I'm am not aware that Lou plans to do anything specific.
All we are going to do is to ask you and your children or those in your Sunday Schools and children's churches to begin to pick up the anthem, "Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of this nation. God, END ABORTION and send revival to America!"
Please send us reports of what you and your group plans to do or is doing to join this prayer movement.
