?It worked!? Those were the words of a young woman who had been sitting in her car in the parking lot of the abortion center in Grand Rapids, talking with a friend who had an abortion appointment.

Lisa, the local coordinator in Grand Rapids, said this woman then went to tell the sidewalk counselors that her friend was not going to keep her appointment. ?After picking up a baby gift bag,? she said, ?they simply drove away ? which was the answer to so many prayers.?

What exactly was it that worked? ?The prayer volunteers were praying, the sidewalk counselors were standing by, the friends were talking in the car ? and the Holy Spirit somehow used it all to touch the heart of this young mother,? Lisa explained. ?What joyful news and what an awesome God!?
