Post-Abortion Healing

He heals the heartbroken


MY PRAYER: Father, exactly twenty-one years ago I had my second abortion. I will remember it until the day I die. The recovery room was filled with screaming and crying women, jolted into the reality that they had taken the life of their unborn baby. Instinctually they knew. In their hearts they couldn’t deny it. No matter what the world tried to tell them, their choice cost them more than they ever expected.

I’ll never forget those women, Lord, because my heart aches for the pain and suffering I know they have been enduring all these years, much like myself. The nightmares, the intimacy issues, the self-destructive behaviors, the thoughts of suicide, the anger.

Jesus, I ache for women to be healed and set free from the prison they have been pushed into because of an abortion. My life spiraled out of control after my second abortion. I remember it as if it were yesterday, declaring my decision to stop believing in You because it was easier to think you didn’t exist than to know You hated me. I couldn’t face You…not after my greatest sins.

Through it all, You never turned away from me even though I ran from You. My shame and guilt were overlooked when I finally ran back into Your loving, forgiving arms. You showed me that NOTHING was too big for You to forgive, and that Your love can heal broken hearts.

This weekend, Father, I will be joining some women for a post-abortion bible healing retreat. This will be the beginning of my journey to help so many women who are going through what I went through. Lord, I ask that You bless this weekend and everyone who will be attending. I pray that You will break the enemy’s stronghold—break every chain!—and heal their precious hearts.

REMINDER FROM GOD: I AM mercy and grace, not quick to anger, but rich in love. I heal the heartbroken and bandage their wounds. My love is eternal, and I won’t quit on them. The moment you called out to Me, I stepped in and made your life large with strength.

I will stand up for My people and hold their hands. [Tell them] to hope—hope now, hope always! With enormous compassion I will bring them back. I already took their punishment and I will make them whole; I carried the burden of their sins. [Tell them:] don’t be afraid—they won’t be embarrassed; don’t hold back—they won’t come up short. They will forget all about their humiliations. I AM their Redeemer…known as God of the whole earth. Those who seek Me shall not lack any good thing. I will restore health to them and heal their wounds. NOTHING is impossible for Me. My love never quits.

{Psalm 145:8, 147:3,138:8, 137:3, 135:14, 131:3; Isaiah 54:7, 53:5, 11, 54:4-5; Psalm 34:10; Jeremiah 30:17; Luke 1:37; Psalm 136}

NOTE TO SELF: If abortion is merely a “choice,” why are so many women ashamed to admit publically that they had one? While society claims it’s no big deal, when they find out a woman had an abortion she is immediately lumped into the category of a loose woman, a woman of no morals or ethics, a sinner, or an outcast. The same society that encourages a woman to abort a child because it’s “really nothing,” is the same society that will gasp in horror when she tells her story.

These women will live with her “choice” forever. It will never escape them, even after God heals their broken heart and restores their emotions. God can, and WILL, restore these women because His love never quits, because He is full of mercy and grace! He is glad—and SO eager—to heal their hearts and restore their lives. I know…because He did it for me.

Do I still grieve my loss? Absolutely. But it’s not as painful as it used to be when I hid from God. I also know that God has my children with Him, safe and sound. God has always given me comfort in knowing that I will see them one day, and that they, too, have forgiven me.

{There are so many people and centers out there that want to help women who are suffering from post-abortion syndrome. Many women are unaware that there is help out there. I currently volunteer for Care Net Family Resource Center, which is an affiliate of Care Net. If you, or anyone you know, is suffering from the trauma of an abortion, please know that there is help out there, and that God STILL loves you and desperately wants to heal you. To find a clinic in your area, simply google “abortion healing clinics.” Be blessed, and always remain hopeful. From my heart…to yours.}
