Dear praying friends,
Welcome to 40 Days for Life!
Happy New year, and welcome to January - Sanctity of Human Life Month! Please come to Virginia Defending Life Day, which is Wednesday February 1st in RICHMOND! Look at www.vaprolifeday.org.
We are continuing to pray on the Sidewalk ouside Planned Parenthood (201 N. Hamilton Street, in Richmond's West End). We are a 40 Days for Life/365 city, so we are attempting to at least cover in prayer one abortion day that Planned Parenthood is open. We know Thursdays and Fridays are surgical abortion days, and we think they do them on other days, too, but of course the abortion pill is a huge factor and is no doubt given to girls and women every day of the week.
When we go to Planned Parenthood, we PRAY. We pray together or alone, in groups or quietly by ourselves. If you are at all able, please bring a friend, a prayer partner, a family member or Sister or Brother in the Lord. We do not trespass on Planned Parenthood's property, but stand on the public right-of-way (the Sidewalk) in front of their building, and on the other side of the driveway, which is visible to the patients in the parking lot. Our goal, as we hold signs for them to see, is to offer help and hope.
I have signs available if you would like to hold a sign that says "We Will Help You." or "Pray to End Abortion." or "Ask Me About a Free Ultrasound." We also have flyers, which direct the girls and women to call an Option Line hotline (Call or text 24/7 1-800-712-4357). This is the best way to get these girls and women and men to go to the Pregnancy Resource Centers (we have 4 locations in Richmond), rather than continuing in to the Planned Parenthood. Our hope and prayer is that we can communicate to them that they have options, that terminating their pregnancy is not a good decision for them or for their unborn baby. The back side of these flyers has information on Abortion Pill Reversal (call 24/7 877-558-0333)
PLEASE join us, making a weekly commitment to pray if at all possible. Sign up on this website, and encourage your church to join us in prayer: www.40daysforlife.com/Richmond. Our Spring/Lent campaign this year is February 22nd (Ash Wednesday) until April 2nd (Palm Sunday).
Thank you so much,
Richmond Leader, 40 Days for Life
