Top 3 reasons to pray outside an abortion center

One of the most common questions we get is: “Why do I have to go out to the abortion facility to pray for an end to abortion? Can’t I pray at home? The Lord hears us wherever we pray.”

That’s true! We do need to pray as much as possible — wherever we are — for an end to abortion. But there are specific reasons why your prayers … and the visible sign of your witness when you pray at the place where the love of God is so desperately needed … are vitally important.

Showing up matters — that’s why feeding the poor and conducting medical missions cannot be done from home. Where we take our prayers makes a difference — especially for the unborn who have no voice but yours.

Robert Colquhoun, our international outreach director, addresses this question in this brand-new video.

    Speaking for myself, ‘praying at home’ is done but to dedicate a special hour sometime in the home takes great discipline.

    Two days ago a 60ish woman stopped to tell a couple of us outside PP in Boston that she did not abort her daughter on the advice of her physician. The young lady went on to college and a career, as did a brother who came later. She just wanted to let us know and moved on quickly. Very uplifting!
