Does standing in the bitter cold and praying in front of the abortion facility really matter?

The question can cross your mind, said one of the volunteers in Augusta. ?Does anyone look at those signs stuck in snow banks? Does anybody care? Does anybody notice? The answer is a resounding YES!?

This was a day when this business does nothing but abortions ? there?s no other reason for a client to show up.

It was against this backdrop that three people stood in the cold, shivered and prayed. As they did, they saw a small car approach the building and slow down. A man and woman were inside ... and the volunteers knew why they were arriving. ?My heart sank,? one of them said.

But as they watched, the man who was driving turned the steering wheel. In time, they continued past the building and out to the main road.

For whatever reason, there would be no abortion that day. One of the women praying almost jumped for joy. ?We stood in amazement at this outpouring of God?s grace,? a volunteer said. ?Please say a prayer for the couple that they will love and cherish this baby in her womb. Keep fighting the good fight.?
