The 40 Days for Life team thought it would be a good idea to invite as many people as possible to pray with them on a Saturday morning outside the abortion center.

Nearly 200 showed up!

John, the local coordinator, said they ?gathered to witness, love, accept, offer help and hope.?

As has been the case at other abortion businesses, the center?s escorts put up a makeshift curtain so their clients would not have to look at the prayer volunteers.

Of course, there?s no such thing as a prayer-proof curtain! The vigil participants? ?holy efforts? continued with trust in the Lord.

John said he prays for the day that all churches will recognize the evil of abortion and take a stand. ?We, however, are not sitting around waiting.?
