Today is Life Sunday. It’s a day to remember and honor the Sanctity of Life because all life is precious!
My second through fourth graders are singing in early worship today. I chose today and our songs intentionally, because there is no better way to affirm life than to have children sing about the preciousness of life.
We’re singing “Lamb of God” and “Thy Word”. We’re also singing Stephen Starke’s beautiful “We Praise You and Acknowledge You.” I get tears in my eyes every time we sing this. We are also singing “God Knew Your Name” by Jim Likens.
“God Knew Your Name” is a beautiful pro-life song which sings of the beauty of life. It continues to repeat this important truth. “Before the light of day shined on your little face, God knew your name.”
I wish you could all hear my students sing. This has become one of their new favorite songs. Since most of you cannot, I encourage you to listen to the song and watch the “God Knew Your Name” video found here.
May this confidence that God knows your name, and the name of every unborn child, enable you to speak up for God’s children not yet born.
