40 DAYS FOR LIFE: DAY 3: Closed for the day!

Deacon John,
Your presence matters. Just ask abortion facility workers!
When the 40 Days for Life UNITED bus rolled up to each of its Thursday vigil stops in Delaware and New Jersey ...
... it was met by enthusiastic prayer volunteers eager to greet our team and share the news ...
... that the abortion center's staff had left the building and closed for the day!
​Not bad for just two days into the 50-state, 125-city tour!
Day 2 of the UNITED tour picked up right where Day 1 left off in the Mid-Atlantic states -- it was downright soggy!
But the main thing to note about Thursday's tour stops is that the abortion facilities were all closed when we got there!
Even howling flash-flood warning sirens weren't enough to keep prayer volunteers away from our stop outside Planned Parenthood in Dover, Delaware.
The center was not open ... but Planned Parenthood supporters braved the weather to photograph the bus!
It was a similar picture at Planned Parenthood in Wilmington. This facility closed rather than staying open when we rolled into town for Delaware's statewide rally.
The abortion giant wasn't exactly happy to see us ... and before long, the police came. When they arrived, though, they said they were there to protect us and make sure nobody was giving us any trouble!
When we drove up to the abortion center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, we found no one home there, either. The abortion facility's staff had already called it a day and emptied out.
Volunteers here report witnessing 25 babies saved from abortion during the last campaign. Praise God for these saved lives ... and for the faithful volunteers, including those who go out to pray all year long.
The day concluded with an incredible crowd at the statewide New Jersey rally in Morristown, along with -- you guessed it -- more rain!
We met Jenny, a prayer volunteer who had been indifferent toward abortion until she encountered her local 40 Days for Life campaign. She's now a regular vigil participant. We also heard a beautifully touching post-abortion testimony from Lana of Silent No More, who moved the crowd to tears with her story of heartbreak and healing.
We're now 520 miles into the tour. Onward to New York!

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
--Matthew 6:25-26
Loving heavenly Father, help us to see the worth of all human beings by the way in which you provide for us. We would ask that you provide also the faith, grace and courage to enable us to protect that which is so precious to you.
