It was, one of the Houston leaders said, ?an absolutely beautiful day of prayer? outside of Planned Parenthood's abortion mega-center.

One of the 40 Days for Life volunteers travels an hour and a half each week to pray at the vigil. While she was praying, a woman walked up and began to share her story.

"I was going to have an abortion a couple years ago,? the woman said, ?but I spoke with someone on the sidewalk and I decided not to abort.?

In fact, the woman told the volunteer, ?I think I spoke to YOU! I want to introduce you to my two-year-old son!"

?We do not always get a chance to see the lives we have prayed for saved from abortion,? said the Houston team member. ?We are so thankful to God for such a blessing as this story from the street!?
