It sounds like the presence of the 40 Days for Life vigil rattles the staff at the Marie Stopes abortion center in Cape Town.

Colette, the local coordinator, said that during every 40 Days for Life campaign, the business closes its doors and brings in the entire staff for a meeting and motivational gathering. ?If the prayers of 40 Days for Life are not working,? she said, ?then why do they need to do so? This is evidence of the power of prayer!?

The campaign is blessed by people Colette described as ?amazing prayer warriors.? They even had a Marie Stopes employee approach them to ask for prayer. Of course, they were more than happy to oblige.

?And then, to add to it,? she said, ?Marie Stopes closed their doors because the prayers were too loud."

Colette said that ?together we can do so much more and save so many more lives than if we passively sit in the dark and wait for change.?
