It's Monday...and that means it's time to update the number of babies saved from abortion through your prayers.
Today, we know of 101 babies spared from abortion since February 17!
Katie asked an abortion client leaving the abortion facility in Plainfield, New Jersey if she could help.
"You already did," the woman replied, handing her a note.
"Thanks for your help. I Have decided not [to] do [it]. God bless you," the note read.
Katie brought 40 Days for Life to Plainfield a decade ago--and this is the first saved baby her campaign has been able to confirm!
"Because of the layout of the property, we don’t know who enters for abortions," said Lisa, who now leads the campaign. "The building has seven offices, and the parking is in the back. But today, the Lord just wanted to encourage us that our efforts have not been in vain!"
"Blessed are those who have not seen, but who have believed," said the Lord.
The 40 Days for Life team in Plainfield toiled for a decade without seeing the fruits of their labors...
...but today those ten years of hard work and relentless prayer are worth it!
When the 40 Days for Life team in Chia learned of an expectant mother planning to have an abortion at the local hospital, they rushed into action.
First, they connected the woman with a pro-life foundation offering support for mothers in crisis. Together, the foundation and the 40 Days for Life team worked through a hospital employee to offer support to the young mom.
Just 90 minutes later, they learned the woman chose life thanks to their efforts.
"Thank God for the fruits of the campaigns!" said 40 Days for Life Latin American Affairs Coordinator Lourdes Varela. "Let's keep praying for her and her baby!"
Cherry Hill, New Jersey
A woman in Cherry Hill wanted to bring a baby safely into the world--even resorting to using in vitro fertilization...
...but news that her husband is being deported rocked her, and she made an appointment at the local abortion facility.
"Apparently, a judge said there isn't enough 'evidence' that their marriage is 'real,'" said Claire, the longtime Cherry Hill campaign leader.
The vigil team is providing help to the mother--including trying to help find immigration assistance to keep the young family together.
Please keep these moms and all who chose life in your prayers as they overcome obstacles to keep their babies safe from the abortion industry!
A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for caring about each of us so deeply. Help us to see and know you as our Father in heaven each and every day of our lives. Your loving hand also rests on every child today carried in its mother’s womb. May they be born into this world and come to know fully and personally your endless love.
