I got this report this morning from 40 Day for Life:
When people hear about babies saved from abortion, it
motivates them to trust God — and participate in
40 Days for Life.
After all, how often do you have an opportunity to
literally help save a life just by peacefully praying?
It’s already happened in this campaign …
… 35 times (that we know of)!
Here are just a few of the miracles that God has
ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
Prayer volunteers at the 40 Days for Life vigil in
Orange County were caught by surprise as the doors of
the abortion center flew open and a frightened young
woman literally ran out as fast as she could …
A young man came out looking for her. The barefoot
runner was his girlfriend, and she was there for an
Eventually, she was found nearby, and vigil participants
offered to get her something to eat. When they sat down
to their meal, the young woman told her story.
She was six months pregnant and was already on the table
at the abortion center. She had an IV and was in the
process of being sedated. But she was still alert enough
to realize …
.. she simply couldn’t go through with it.
“God’s grace poured into her heart,” said one of the
40 Days for Life volunteers. The young woman found the
strength and courage to remove the needle from her arm,
to quickly get dressed (except for her shoes!) and run
out to safety.
“Our prayers from outside helped her get that courage
to leave the table and run away,” said the volunteer.
“I realized how important our role is.”
40 Days for Life participants in Houston say the campaign
has been quite eventful already.
There’s a mobile pro-life pregnancy counseling center
in Houston, and it is often parked outside Planned
Parenthood’s huge abortion facility.
Women arriving for appointments at Planned Parenthood
are offered assistance in this vehicle, and volunteers
say many of these women are willing and eager to listen.
“This was possible through the grace of God,” said
one volunteer, “even with several Planned Parenthood
escorts on the scene.”
Two abortion-minded women visited the mobile center.
One of those two made a huge turn around after seeing
her unborn child on the ultrasound image and chose life.
The other simply said she would think about it, so she
was given information about pro-life resources. Please
keep her in your prayers.

One of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Milwaukee
watched as a couple pulled into the parking lot at the
abortion center. The woman got out and walked into the
building while the man remained at the wheel of his
truck. So one vigil participant walked over and struck
up a conversation.
Eventually, the volunteer started talking about his
dad, who was born during the Depression, less than nine
months after his grandparents got married.
“I couldn’t think of a worse time to have to worry
about feeding another mouth,” he said, “but my
grandparents did the right thing.”
The driver then opened his door and said, “OK, then
I’m going in. I’ll talk to her.”
He came out later, but shrugged his shoulders and
said, “I tried, but she ain’t with it.”
But the prayer volunteer encouraged him, “Go back and
try again. You have nothing to lose!”
The man went back inside again, and finally the couple
came out together — smiling — and got back into
“We didn’t get it!” he said.
“Amen!” said the 40 Days for Life volunteer.
“Amen!” replied the guy in the truck.
