?Sometimes when I'm the only person in front of the abortion clinic praying,? said a 40 Days for Life team member in Tallahassee, ?I wonder if there is any point in doing this.?

It?s not unusual to feel this way. You?re one person. You?re just offering your small sacrifice. What can you do? But keep in mind where this doubt comes from. It does not come from the Lord!

?I need to remember that Christ calls us to persevere in the face of doubt, difficulty, and even persecution,? the volunteer said. ?If only one child is saved, then all the effort is worth it.?

It has already been worth it ? four times over!

The director of a local pregnancy help center has reported that four expectant mothers had come to them after deciding not to have their abortions, because of the people praying in front of the abortion facility.

Said the Tallahassee team member, ?Please give thanks to Our Lord Jesus Christ.?
