The Waco, Texas 40 Days for Life campaign isn't content to pray in front of Planned Parenthood...

...Team members are praying above Planned Parenthood.

"EvangelAire is up and flying prayer flights over Waco and especially over Planned Parenthood," said Chaplain Monte.

"You can see the Planned Parenthood (with an empty parking lot), prayer participants, sidewalk counselors, the Pro-Life Waco truck, and a sonogram RV outside the pregnancy center across the street," said Aine, the local 40 Days for Life leader.

With a bird's eye view, Aine and her team are able to pray for abortion clients, abortion workers, 40 Days for Life vigil participants, and pregnancy help staff and volunteers.

The prayers are working.

Though Planned Parenthood resumed doing abortions in early February (after a significant stretch without an abortionist), the facility has been unexpectedly closed during the opening weeks of the campaign.

Del Valle, Mexico

A police officer knocked on the door of the abortion facility several times...but nobody answered.

"Today there is no one," a flower vendor told the officer. "But tomorrow, they will be open."

A vigil participant asked the vendor why the facility was closed.

"She confirmed that they are not opening on Tuesdays or Thursdays," reported the vigil participant, praising God. "This is great news!"

Split, Croatia

Marija said the vigil site in Split is well-staffed--with the support of many families bringing their children out to pray.

Marija's husband attends the vigil on his motorcycle...and he just might be the coolest looking 40 Days for Life participant on the planet!

Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.”

—Genesis 4:8-10

Father, help us to embrace the fact that we are our “brother’s keeper.” When, due to selfish motives, we try to cast off this responsibility please call to us to account. We would be pleasing to you and to our “brother.” Through the help and grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
