Thus far, we’ve seen 83 abortion facility employees have conversions and leave their jobs during 40 Days for Life campaigns. You heard from two of them — who not only left but then joined the vigil — in the video we sent yesterday. If you missed it (or just want to see it again), watch it and share with friends:
I can’t say where, of course … but we’ve heard that abortion workers have already reached out to prayer volunteers on Day 1 so keep them in your prayers!
For these 40 days, we pray for the babies, the men and women seeking abortion — and yes — the workers in the abortion centers. Those prayers will go on day or night … rain or shine … on four continents.
The darkness of the night provided a solemn setting for the opening candlelight vigil in Columbia.
This location is a Planned Parenthood center that once offered abortions — but has not been able to keep an abortionist on staff. There have been no abortions here for 15 months. Prayer volunteers are hoping to see the day when this facility goes out of business.
WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK
It was sunny for the kickoff rally in White Plains. “We had a good turnout,” said Gerald. “Praise God!”
He noted with sadness that 2,257 abortions took place in the area in 2011, the most recent year reported. But “there is some good news here … the abortion numbers are declining year over year.”
PORT CHARLOTTE, FLORIDA
It was not so sunny in Port Charlotte, where their 40 Days for Life campaign started out in the rain. They’ve had lots of rain — even flooding lately.
But after the vigil began, the rain was replaced by a rainbow. “Praise God for the wonderful sign,” said Stephanie in Port Charlotte.
Here’s the link to today’s devotional.
