PROGRAMMING NOTE: With so many at home due to the pandemic, our friends at EWTN will re-air Life Journey on Saturday, April 4 at 2 pm Eastern/1 pm Central.
Today, we can confirm that the 107th abortion facility has gone out of business following a 40 Days for Life campaign...
...and it's directly attributable to the prayers of 40 Days for Life participants!
More on that big news in a moment. But first, meet a HIGH SCHOOL student who was saved from abortion during the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign nearly 16 years ago...and find out how you can win a signed copy of my book To the Heart of the Matter in today's video blog:

Prayer warriors in Lindavista, Mexico persuaded a landlord not to renew the lease of a Marie Stopes abortion center. But even after the contract ended, the facility remained open, continuing to do abortions at the site.
After another conversation between the landlord and 40 Days for Life participants (plus a local pastor), the landlord finally kicked Marie Stopes out.
"Today, there are no signs and no furniture," wrote 40 Days for Life Coordinator of Latin American Affairs Lourdes Varela.
Though public vigils came to an early end, 40 Days for Life participants continue to pray for an end to abortion remotely. And the Lord is responding!
Dawn in Sarasota used her scheduled vigil hour to pray that God would put up barriers and roadblocks for women seeking abortions.
The next day, when Dawn needed to visit the store for essential supplies, a conversation with the cashier turned to Planned Parenthood. The cashier shared that she volunteered to make and deliver face masks for healthcare workers...
...but when she arrived to the delivery site and asked where the masks would be used, she learned they were designated for the Planned Parenthood mega-facility in Sarasota. The cashier took the masks back home.
"Praise God that the cashier asked and then took the masks back home," Dawn said. "God always answers prayers!"
"I'm asking people to send me pictures of them praying remotely," wrote September, who leads the 40 Days for Life vigil in Milwaukee.
Prayer volunteer Mary Beth took her dog for a walk and found it was a great time to pray for an end to abortion! Some are posting the signs they'd normally bring to the vigil in their windows. And others have set up designated prayer spaces in their homes.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
— 1 Peter 1:6-7
Dear Heavenly Father, we sing to You a new song, for You have done marvelous things. Forgive us when we allow circumstances to defeat us. You give power to the faint and You increase strength in those who have no might. We rest in You dear Lord, and ask You to empower us again for Your service as You work out Your plan for us and through us.
