Lancaster, Pennsylvania

A woman in her mid-30s stopped at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Lancaster. She had noticed the signs the prayer volunteers were holding … and asked for more information about the campaign.

She chatted with vigil participants for a while. They gave her a copy of the campaign flyer, and she continued her walk up the street. But after walking a short distance, she turned around … headed back to the vigil … and asked the others if she could lead them in prayer!

“Of course,” said one of the team members, “all agreed, and the woman gave heartfelt praise to the Lord and passionately asked for his help in ending abortion in our community and nation. This is just one of many moments that Lancaster vigil volunteers will long remember.”
