Ricky said he was praying with three other 40 Days for Life volunteers outside a Planned Parenthood facility in San Jose.

A young woman of high school or college age arrived with an older woman, most likely her mother. They drove into the lot and parked. They got out of their car, but then just stopped.

They looked over at the people praying ? then just stood outside the car talking to one another.

?After about ten minutes,? Ricky said, ?they hopped right back into the car ? turned right back around ? and did not enter the facility.?

Who knows why they were there? Who knows what they were talking about? Only God knows for sure. But prayer is powerful. And God listens.
