?We had rain on this busy morning,? said one of the 40 Days for Life team members in Birmingham. ?What a sidewalk covered with prayer and umbrellas!?

One woman arrived and spoke with one of the prayer volunteers. She was abortion minded, but gradually began to talk. She read the information she was given, but still went in for her appointment. But after a while, she came back out ? and followed the volunteer to the pregnancy help center.

She will not be having an abortion!

Another woman arrived and stopped to talk on her way inside ... and told vigil participants that the baby's father did not want her to have an abortion. He refused to go with her to the appointment.

After more talk ? and some tears ? she was soon on her way to the pregnancy center to learn about life-affirming options.

She had been looking for a sign from God not to have her abortion. The sight of a sidewalk full of people praying was just that sign.

?Another save!? said the volunteer. ?Glory to God!?
