Sometimes we are so focused on Lent, that we forget the 40 Days for Life campaign is taking place at this time.
In Psalm 126, we read: “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” When we go to pray in front of abortion facilities, we go with joy.
Today we look at the fruit of offering joy in a place of despair — and praise God that thus far during this 40 Days for Life campaign, we are aware of at least 352 babies who have been saved from abortion!
Here are just a few of the great reports of the Lord’s victories.
40 Days for Life vigil participants watched as a car pulled up to the abortion center. A woman got out — while a man and three small children waited in the parking lot.
A volunteer went to see if the man would speak to her. He did — telling her it would just be too difficult to have a fourth child.
A counselor told him of the help available and how abortion is not a solution for his wife. She told him that he had three beautiful gifts from God in the back seat … and God was giving them another beautiful gift — the baby his wife was carrying.
After a while, the woman came out in tears. There would be no abortion. She then returned to the abortion center and got her money back.
“What courage they had,” the volunteer said. “What a wonderful God we serve!”
LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS
A young couple had been parked down the street for more than half an hour. But all of a sudden, they got out of the car and made a dash for the abortion center.
One of the prayer volunteers tried to speak to them. “The girl looked confused – and the boyfriend was set on her going in. I called out to her and she turned and smiled at me.” She said to the young woman, “You do not need to go through this. You should make the decision. After all you’re the one who is pregnant.”
They went inside – and later stormed back out. “She evidently had second thoughts and came to discuss them with the boyfriend,” the volunteer said. “He took her back into the clinic. They came out again and the girl looked happy. The boyfriend drove out recklessly and screeched all the car tires.”
Please pray for this young couple — and their child.
