DAY 18: Nothing ever happens

“I’ve gone out to pray at the abortion center … and nothing ever happens.”

I’ve heard this over the years — and have even thought it myself. But I’ve learned it just isn’t true.

Deep down we know it’s false — and sometimes we have stories that prove it.

Stepping out to pray at the 40 Days for Life vigil is an act of faith. You may see results immediately. Or maybe you’re just being asked to trust that the Lord will hear your prayer and bring his mercy and grace to someone who really needs it.

Every now and then, the person on the receiving end of those blessings will come back to say “thank you!” … and show you a beautiful child.
