Bound 4 Life wrist band
The red Life Band that we wear is not a fad or a fashion statement. In fact, it is an outward marking of an internal conviction. We wear this band in unity and as a reminder of a solemn commitment that we have made—a lifestyle that we have entered into willingly.
During the early days of the first Silent Sieges in Washington, DC, a young man approached founder Lou Engle and said,
“You know, if you were to take this life tape and turn it into a wristband like the Livestrong bands, we could start a Martin Luther King, Jr. movement to end abortion like they did in Birmingham, Alabama to end segregation.”
It was a great idea, but was it a God idea? Not wanting to presume anything, Lou waited and asked the Lord for confirmation.
The next day a different young man we did not know came by the Supreme Court and saw the Life Tape. He said,
“You know, if you turned this life tape into wristbands like the Livestrong bands, I would take them back to my hometown Birmingham and start a Martin Luther King, Jr. movement to end abortion.”
Lou and the team were suddenly gripped by the idea of millions of people wearing the Life Band and praying daily for the ending of abortion. The following day, a benefactor wrote a check to pay for the first order of Life Bands. A mobilization tool was born.
