The Forgotten Need that Could Unlock Justice Nationwide
There is a great desire for justice in our nation, but what about justice for the disabled children aborted in the womb every day?
One recent conversation showed me that maybe giving them justice and life could be the a to unlocking justice nationwide.

I know a D.C.-based Christian prayer warrior who works with the federal government and has many dreams from God that have come true.
She shared with me a recent dream and what God has put on her heart related to the overturn of Roe v. Wade that I think can guide our prayers specifically right now.
Read it below:
Two nights before the Roe v. Wade decision was released, I had a dream where I was in the Supreme Court, and I saw that there was going to be this decision released, and I saw this letter go out that was rooted in Psalm 67…but in the basement of the Supreme Court there were all these special needs children. And I saw through their parents’ eyes what they were seeing. There were low ceilings, and a dark room, and there wasn’t ultimate hope. But when the time for justice arrived, I knocked at the door, and they became the guide for justice. I really think we are about to see this in a big way.
I believe we are about to see a strong move of the Lord in the area of special needs children, and in that regard I’m praying for grace and strength for parents. I’m praying for avenues for these children and the decisions, and all that is a part of raising a special needs child. But more than that, what I really believe that the Lord is speaking is that He is about to use them as a voice really strongly.
It is no secret that so many children with Down syndrome and other conditions are aborted in the womb when their disability is discovered. Let’s pray for justice for them that would lead to justice around the nation. There is not much reliable data, but estimates say that about two out of three pregnancies are aborted when it is discovered the baby will have down syndrome.
A key passage of Scripture on this topic is 2 Samuel 9, where David cares for Mephibosheth, one of Saul’s sons who was crippled in his feet. David took great care to have Mephibosheth looked after with servants and resources, which may be a picture of how Jesus takes a great care of us all, even in disability or our own weakness.
What if we took the same care in prayer for those who are weak and disabled? Share your thoughts in the comments.
With that in mind, let us pray:
-Father, we ask that you bring a newfound appreciation for unborn children, including those who have disabilities of any kind. Put an end to the killing of disabled children, Lord.
-Father, raise up voices among the disabled community to speak for Justice in our nation.
-Father, we ask that you put an end to abortion nationwide, that children would be loved and valued regardless of their condition. Thank you, Lord!
Verse to press into as you pray on this issue:
The beautiful story of David and Mephibosheth:
“Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”
Mephibosheth bowed down and said, “What is your servant, that you should notice a dead dog like me?”
Then the king summoned Ziba, Saul’s steward, and said to him, “I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. You and your sons and your servants are to farm the land for him and bring in the crops, so that your master’s grandson may be provided for. And Mephibosheth, grandson of your master, will always eat at my table.” (Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.)
Then Ziba said to the king, “Your servant will do whatever my lord the king commands his servant to do.” So Mephibosheth ate at David’s table like one of the king’s sons.
Mephibosheth had a young son named Mika, and all the members of Ziba’s household were servants of Mephibosheth. And Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, because he always ate at the king’s table; he was lame in both feet.
(2 Samuel 9:7-13)
