As we start a new week, let's rejoice at all the good
that God has done!
So far, there have been ...
... 112 babies ...

... saved from abortion -- that we know of -- during
this 40 Days for Life campaign!
And that means that since 40 Days for Life began as
a coordinated campaign five years ago, there have now
been, through God's grace, MORE THAN 6,000 LIVES SAVED!
Here are just a few of those babies' stories.

"Today is a day that I will never forget," said one
of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Dallas. "Today,
for the first time, I stood in front of an abortion
clinic with other Christians and prayed for an end
to abortion."
There was a heaviness all around her, she said, yet
"it quickly became apparent to me that God Himself
was there among us, in a very real way."
She kept her head down, "trying to block out the
traffic noise and focus on why I was there."
It was at that point that one of the counselors
came up and said, "A woman just chose life!"
The woman had come for an abortion, but couldn't
bring herself to go through with it. She was weeping
as she spoke with the counselor. 
"Wow! God was already answering our prayers," the
volunteer said, "as we stood there on that sidewalk."

Patti, the local leader in Downey, knows of several
women who've chosen life for their babies during
this campaign. "God is answering in mighty ways,"
she said.
In a posting on the 40 Days for Life blog, another
volunteer tells of a young woman who walked up to
vigil participants and introduced herself. She was
holding a small child as she told them her story.
During last fall’s campaign, she was at this very
same facility as a client -- she was going to have
an RU-486 abortion. As she was walking in, she
noticed the people praying. It was a thought she
couldn't get out her mind.
When she was given the first abortion pill to take,
she walked out, telling the staff, "I can't do this!"
After finishing her story, she told the volunteers
that she would be taking her infant son to church the
following Sunday for a dedication ceremony.
Some of the people listening to all of this then took
her to a nearby Christian pregnancy help center, where
she picked up some much-needed baby supplies -- and a
new outfit for her son.
Said one of the volunteers, "To God be the glory!"
Peter tells the story of a young woman who left the
abortion center and walked up to three prayer
volunteers and struck up a conversation. The three
soon found out that the woman was pregnant.
Before long, she simply said, "I don't want to have
the abortion."
The prayer volunteers got her in touch with a
counselor, who had a long discussion with her. The
woman, Peter said, "had come to the realization from
seeing a her sonogram that it was truly a baby
growing in her womb and NOT just a 'fetus' as noted
to her by clinic staff."
Peter later had a chance to speak with her "and
assured her that she will have all of our prayers
... and we will guide her to receive all the support
she needs from the Buffalo pro-life community."

Day 14 - October 9



Abortion is the great "no." May all of God's people have the freedom and grace to say "yes" to His marvelous plans.


For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed and in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.

-- Psalm 139:13-16


Unlike the rest of creation, we are capable of a personal relationship with God. Not only did God create us, but created us according to a plan devised from all eternity. No matter how far back we go in our imagination, there was never a time when God did not know each of us, in every detail of our being.

There was not a particular time when God decided to make us. The decision to make us has been in the mind of God from all eternity. All our days were written in His book.

To dare to say that a human being, developing in the womb, should not be born is as wrong as to say that a born person should not continue to grow and live. In each case, an attack on human life is an attack on the God who formed and made us. Jesus Christ is the great "yes" to the promises of God; abortion is the great "no."


Lord, I pray today for every unborn child. The beauty of the bodies and souls of these children flows from your hands and your eternal plan. Awaken in every human conscience a profound reverence for human life, and grant us grace to defend our smallest and most defenseless brothers and sisters, those still being formed in the secret places of their mothers' womb. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
