THE RED PARTY

LIFEHOUSE OF HOUSTON HELPS HOST INAUGURAL PRAYER EVENT FOR ROE V. WADE ANNIVERSARY

On the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, front line advocates gathered to celebrate life and unite in prayer over Houston at the newly established event – The Red Party. Hosted by The Source for Women’s Intercessory Team in collaboration with LifeHouse of Houston, Elijah Rising, and Rescue Houston, The Red Party event provided encouragement to local ministries and volunteers involved in the life movement.

Over 100 attendees worshipped, enjoyed Scripture readings and joined in prayer for three key areas: the cause for life, those in leadership including churches and para churches, and for the abortion vulnerable. Executive directors for each host organization were blessed and prayed over including LifeHouses’ own, Sue Baumgarten.

The most powerful moment of the evening occurred when a client served by the host ministries gave her moving testimony of choosing life against all odds. She spoke of the pressure she received from her family to have an abortion and honored LifeHouse, The Source for Women, Elijah Rising, and Rescue Houston for being a part of her journey to choose life. The Roe v. Wade anniversary day was particularly significant to her as that was when she had originally scheduled to terminate her pregnancy. She is still currently living at LifeHouse and thriving as she works toward a new life in Christ and new goals for her future.

The evening closed out with a cry for life over Houston using a shofar. Event attendees prayed with one another and celebrated with cake and dancing in anticipation of what God would do throughout the rest of 2015.

The next Red Party date is already set for January 22, 2016. Check your inbox for more information closer to the event.
