From 40 Days For Life: DAY 24: “Four confirmed saves!”


This is a busy campaign ... and today we are going on a quick tour!
Enjoy these snippets of good news from the front lines -- where lives are being saved in 375 cities during this record-sized campaign!
Greensboro, North Carolina: Saves in the South
Thanks be to God for our faithful volunteers! Prayer is powerful. We can report four confirmed saves in the last two weeks!
Manhattan, New York: Big turnout in the Big Apple
Huge response in front of Planned Parenthood on Margaret Sanger Square! There were 94 praying at 40 Days for Life in New York City!
(Margaret Sanger was the eugenicist, racist founder of Planned Parenthood. You can learn more about her in this 40 Days for Life podcast episode.)
Nashville, Tennessee: Delayed results in Music City
We were at Planned Parenthood when a young couple stopped by and told us that they decided not to go into Planned Parenthood because we were there praying. They showed us their baby in the back seat -- about 6-9 months old!
Fayetteville, Arkansas: Two babies saved
Praise reports: An abortion-minded client had been saving money for an abortion, but she ran out of time and is going to parent. Another client said she always thought she would abort but she has decided she can't do it. Praise God for His convicting power!
Grand Rapids, Michigan: Cold and rainy
Despite the drizzly day and the cool weather, participants came to the vigil in front of Heritage Abortion Clinic to pray with Bishop David Walkowiak. Bishop Walkowiak said those present were "a hardy crowd!"
Canton, Ohio: A few good Knights
The Knights of Columbus drive from Alliance each campaign once a week to pray at Planned Parenthood. A gentleman stopped and thanked them for being there. He even offered to buy them supper. One of the Knights writes, "Just wanted to pass that on to you. People are thankful that we are doing what we are doing."
Albuquerque, New Mexico: Five spared
Great news! The lives of five children in the womb were saved -- and five women were saved from the pain of abortion this week in Albuquerque. Praise God!
Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name.
-- Nehemiah 1:10-11
We pray for your continued guidance and protection throughout the remainder of this 40-day campaign. May we be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in Your work, knowing that our labor will not be in vain.
