40 Days For Life: DAY 2: We Have Our 1st Saved Baby! 👶

 






image



Just hours after the vigil began...

...we learned of the first saved baby!

Richard in Kasese, Uganda reported that his vigil helped a young woman opt not to have a late-term abortion.

"This girl is in great need," Richard said. "But I have assured her I will support her. God will do more and more."

Shortly thereafter, Iness from Kitwe, Zambia reported a saved baby.



These reports should inspire us to trust God.

Yes, the headlines in the news are discouraging...but complaining isn't going to solve any problems.

God will solve our cultural crisis, and in His generosity, He invites you and me to be part of His solution.

On today's video blog, I discuss how we can get to work:

Columbia, Missouri

Kathy has been leading 40 Days for Life vigils in Columbia since 2009!

Back then, Kathy said the local Planned Parenthood did 800 abortions a year. While the facility remains open, it hasn't committed a single abortion in three years.

Columbia's faithful prayer warriors are not satisfied. In addition to holding two 40 Days for Life campaigns each year, they participate in the year-round 40 Days for Life 365 vigil.

They plan to persevere in prayer until Planned Parenthood closes its doors--forever!

Birmingham, England

Birmingham's campaign opened with a powerful talk from a priest who discussed spiritual warfare and the battle to end abortion. The event was well-attended and garnered vigil signups from first-time 40 Days for Life participants.

Fr. Bernard shared a story in which a friend's wife asked him about his day-to-day routine as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal. When Fr. Bernard shared that he ministers to the homeless, the woman gushed enthusiastically, adding that she has a friend who has a job that allows her to selflessly serve those in need...

...working for Planned Parenthood.

"Fr. Bernard used this story to remind those present that many of those working in the abortion industry genuinely think they're doing the right thing..." said Isabel, the Birmingham 40 Days for Life leader. "...And that to start a conversation we need to find a point of mutual agreement."

In those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution.

— Acts 6:1

Father, in the Church’s desire to engage our communities with the Gospel, let us gain wisdom from those who have gone before us and cherish their experiences and perspectives. Help us to appreciate every soul in the body of Christ and minister properly to everybody.

Marietta, Georgia

As the vigil begins today, dozens of cities across the United States transition to their 40 Days for Life campaigns after hosting year-round 40 Days for Life 365 vigils.

Those year-round vigils have already saved hundreds of lives from abortion this year.

A Marietta vigil participant received a text message from an abortion-bound mom. "I'm glad I pulled over and talked to you," the message read. "I canceled my abortion appointment today."

After having the opportunity to meet her baby via ultrasound, the mother realized she couldn't go through with it!

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

September and Dan in Milwaukee joined 40 Days for Life 365 this summer.

They've already saved 56 babies!

Dan reported that one abortion-bound mother stayed inside the abortion facility for just four minutes and ten seconds before exiting to seek life-affirming alternatives.

"The escorts do not like when we walk people to the [pregnancy help center]," September reported. "An escort walked right in the door of [the pregnancy help center], trying to talk the person out of going there. I thought they were about 'choice.'"

Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast … Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, your people."

—Joel 2:15-17

Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth.
