Speak Now!

"Lets read in Proverbs this time." I suggested to my friend.
"Sure! I love Proverbs. I'd say it's my favourite book!" She replied happily.
"Okay. I chose last time. You choose this time." I said cheekily.
"Hey! You know I don't like choosing!" She retorted.
"Why don't you just pick random? Lets see..... there is 31 chapters...." I paused.
"Chapter 31 is a cool chapter." She said.
"Well, then. How about we read Proverbs 31?" I asked.
"Sounds great." She replied. And we started.

We were in the middle of our once-a-week tradition. Devotions over the phone. Reading passages of the Bible, and then discussing it. We had just read verse 8, when I stopped.

"Wow. That is so clear!" I gasped. Surprised.
"Hmm.... it is." She commented.
"It says to Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. You know what comes to my mind?" I asked her.
"No. What?" She questioned.
"Babies. They can't speak for themselves. And abortion appoints them for destruction. Here is an order to be a mouth for them. We need to speak up. Plead their cause. I'd always known it was wrong, and that we need to do something, but this is a command from God. We need, not want, need to speak up against abortion." I looked at the Bible, shaking my head softly. I'd never seen it before. Never known of this divine command.

Later in the day, I remembered something I'd started. Something that would enable me to be a mouth. A mouth for the speechless...... It was time to finish it.

Are you willing to speak for the speechless?


  1. Oooh, I'm getting really excited here :D I've been planning something for a while that I feel God has asked me to do about this very thing ... and I'll hopefully be contacting you guys shortly about it!

  2. Wow, Georgie! You sure got me piping hot curious now! O.o Can't wait! ;)
