Tomorrow it begins ... the next 40 Days for Life campaign, which kicks off in 252 cities across 19 countries around the world. If you haven?t done so already, it's a good time to find the location nearest you and sign up for the vigil:
God has provided many blessings through past 40 Days for Life campaigns:
- 9,699 babies saved from abortion
- 107 workers who have quit the abortion industry
- 60 closed abortion centers
What results could be achieved during THIS campaign?
That will be determined primarily by two things:
- GOD, who can do all things. Please pray for our Heavenly Father to hear our prayers, forgive our sin of abortion, and heal our land.
- YOU, who are called in Scripture to "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done? (Proverbs 24:11-12)
Let's work and pray that more lives will be spared from abortion, more workers will experience conversions, and more abortion centers will close their doors forever.
If you weren't able to join us on the webcast last night, former Planned Parenthood director Ramona Trevi?o shared her story of experiencing a conversion and then quitting her job following a 40 Days for Life campaign outside her workplace. The center she used to manage subsequently went out of business.
Ramona has now written a book about her experiences, unveiling the truth about what goes on behind the walls at Planned Parenthood ? and how she was rescued from America?s largest abortion chain.
Listen to the webcast ? and find out more about Ramona?s book, Redeemed by Grace.
In your own community, you may well witness facilities closing ... abortion workers leaving the industry ... and lives saved from abortion!
Speaking of babies spared from death ... here?s one story from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During the last 40 Days for Life campaign, a prayer volunteer told us about her time at the vigil. ?I was surprised at how busy the abortion clinic was," she said.
She watched as a young woman left the building with her boyfriend and mother. At first, she feared the worst. But as she approached the three, the young woman?s mother told her, ?She?s not having the abortion!?
This woman then said that she?d had an abortion herself when she was young, and that she had terrible regrets about it. Vigil participants offered her information about healing after abortion, as it was clear that she was still deeply affected by her experience all those years ago.
A bit later, they overheard the older woman as she made a phone call. She smiled broadly as she said, ?I?m going to be a grandma!?
?Praise God for this miraculous save!? the volunteer said.
Please join together in prayer that God will show us many more miracles in the 40 days ahead!
