I just wrapped up a great visit to Pittsburgh, helping kick off their 40 Days for Life campaign. Here I am at the opening event with Nikki Bruni, the local 40 Days for Life coordinator.
Around 125 people turned out to hear the great praise-and-worship band, Intent … along with Georgette Forney, co-founder the of Silent No More Awareness group. The vigil location is on a busy downtown street.
If you’ve never had a chance to actually pray at a 40 Days for Life vigil — here’s your invitation! The first step is to find the nearest location.
And if you need a bit of encouragement, here’s one first-time prayer volunteer who’s now energized and ready to do even more!
“I’m hooked!” was the reaction of a young mom who had just finished her first-ever prayer hours at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Pensacola.
“I feel like I’m actually doing something to end abortion,” she added. “It’s great to do something … instead of just talking about abortion.”
She said she would commit to as many days of prayer at the abortion center as possible.
ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY
Ethel tells me the first 40 Days for Life campaign in the Atlantic City area is off to a great start — and the blessings are obvious, even when the abortion facility is closed.
“We had so many cars and trucks beeping and waving,” she said. There was also the young woman who drove up to ask for help.
“She was 9 weeks pregnant and considering and abortion,” Ethel explained. The volunteers offered God’s love — and information about how she could find assistance. The woman said she would return for more prayer … but she had to get home, where she has four other children.
Please keep this woman — and the many others just like her — in your prayers.
