“It’s official!” reads the message from Michael, the local 40 Days for Life coordinator in Severna Park, Maryland.It wasn't easy for them to counter an abortion facility located in a private development, the closest the volunteers could get was several hundred yards away, but when committed people raise their prayers together, miracles do happen. The truth and a prayer touch hearts and convert minds:
“We have confirmed that Gynecare is closed,” he wrote, “and will not reopen its doors. The office suite that Gynecare has operated in for years is already listed for rent, and we have confirmed with the listing agent that the current tenant will be completely out of the office soon!”
For the seventh time now, the Lord has responded to 40 Days for Life volunteers’ prayers by closing the doors of a place where countless numbers of innocent lives were lost!!!
A woman drove into the parking lot near the 40 Days for Life vigil location in Lawrenceville and started yelling at one of the volunteers. She was described as very aggressive and angry, shouting things like, “Just WHAT are you people doing here?”No wonder the pro-aborts go on the offensive. Those "planned parenthood" butchers must be getting really worried about their business.
The volunteer quietly explained what the vigil was all about — and the angry woman started to calm down a bit. During the course of a 15-minute conversation, she shared some personal information (we’re not sure exactly what was discussed), and finally she had made a complete turnaround.
“She became very sweet and very supportive of what we were doing,” one of the volunteers reported.
A nurse walked out of the abortion center that is the site of one of the 40 Days for Life vigils in the El Paso area and gave her phone number to one of the prayer volunteers.
“Please help me find a new job,” she said. “I quit!”
At their kickoff event recently, the 40 Days for Life team in Santa Cruz was “welcomed” by a local anarchist group that, to say the least, is rabidly pro-abortion.The pro-aborts are sure getting desperate. I've already mentioned an incident in Halifax where an angry woman, pretending to be a passer-by, distracted the vigil keepers while her accomplices stole the signs. Fortunately, we haven't yet encountered that kind of animosity here in Moncton. This year's vigil is at the general hospital, so we can't know whether any of the abortions scheduled there has been cancelled. We walk by faith, not by sight and we know that our prayers are never in vain.
Most of what they said and most of what they did at the prayer vigil … well, I’m just not going to repeat it. Suffice it to say, it was nasty.
The abortionist also has a sprinkler system — but not for landscaping. The sprinklers are intentionally pointed towards the sidewalk … where the prayer volunteers stand.
He also installed a sound system that he often uses to blast out obscene music — hoping that the Christians praying on the sidewalk would be offended and leave.
On my recent visit to the 40 Days for Life vigil in Milwaukee, the abortion center put a sign in their window asking for contributions to “pledge to end harassment.”
This childish reaction speaks to the effectiveness of the prayer that they view as “harassment.”
