A young mom was at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Dallas, praying with her two small children. It was getting a little past time for the next prayer volunteer to come, but she wasn't worried.

So she decided to stay and cover a second hour. She watched a car drive into the parking lot of the abortion facility. A couple got out of the car, at first heading to the front door of the building. But then they turned toward the volunteers. The couple wanted to know what alternatives there were to having the abortion.

The prayer volunteers were able to tell the couple about the nearby pregnancy help centers ? including one in the very same office complex. They watched this new mom and dad as they walked over to the resource center to receive real help.

If the people had not been there praying, the couple could have gone into the abortion facility. But they did not ? those prayers were answered!
