St. Paul, Minnesota

“Thanks be to God, a baby was saved from death at Planned Parenthood!” said a very excited St. Paul volunteer.

“I saw a girl walk out and start walking toward the end of the driveway,” the vigil participant said. “I asked if she was there for an abortion. She said yes, but she wasn’t going through with it.”

The young woman said the prayer presence confirmed she was doing the right thing.

She said while she was inside Planned Parenthood, something just came over her and she knew had to leave. “I told her that was the Holy Spirit,” the volunteer said. “She said she is a Christian, and she had been praying about this.”

She was given information about life-affirming pregnancy centers and was told that there are people in the community who are willing to help.

Later, the young woman texted the volunteers. “I am so grateful for you guys today. I feel like you guys were my angels sent from Him to reveal and reassure me that I made the right choice.”

“Tears of joy were streaming down my face,” the team member said. “I dropped to my knees in prayers of thanks to our heavenly Father. I was so blessed today, to be a part of this. Keep fighting the good fight to save babies in Jesus’ mighty name. Our prayers are effective and our presence is powerful!

    Know that anyone who has doubts or changes her mind on her way to an abortion was not a good candidate for abortion in the first place.
