There has been a good response to the needed hours for prayer and witness at Planned Parenthood. We still have some open hours that have no bodies to witness and pray, but I’ll post those hours in a moment. I wanted to talk about how important being a witness on the sidewalk is.
191 abortion workers have quit. Some just walked out the door. Nearly all of them say that the people on the sidewalk praying were the major reason they quit. The prayers were working, but they saw the people praying, and were moved seeing people who cared deeply about life. Witness effects our entire community. We aren’t some nameless group in the shadows. We have faces, and families, and cars, and we stand in silent prayer. It is powerful to those inside. It is powerful to passers by. It is powerful to the world watching. 192 souls will tell you how powerful. The more witnesses we have standing against the evil of abortion, the stronger our pro-life statement is to the world.
And with that, we still have hours that are empty and need witnesses and prayer partners. If you can’t take one of these hours, commit to any hour convenient to your life. Witness and prayer are saving lives. 16,003 babies around the world are alive because you prayed
