?You?ve heard the phrase ?God?s timing is perfect,?? said Laura, the Louisville coordinator. ?Well today, God?s timing was absolutely perfect!?

Just as Archbishop Joseph Kurtz arrived to lead prayer at the 40 Days for Life vigil, one of the prayer volunteers noticed a woman had come out of the abortion center.

She had tears in her eyes ? and told the vigil participants that ?she couldn?t go through with it? and was keeping her baby. She accepted information about the pregnancy help center ? thanked the volunteers ? and drove away.

?Archbishop Kurtz and the other 40 Days for Life volunteers prayed for this mother and her unborn child,? Laura said, ?and gave thanks for the gift of the life that was saved. We are asking for your continued prayers for the protection of the unborn, this mother and her child, and the many mothers and fathers that need help in an unplanned pregnancy.?
