We are preparing for our tenth (twice per year) 40 Days for Life prayer vigil for the end of abortion. This year it is set to begin September 25. For 40 consecutive days we will pray peacefully across the street from the Morgentaler abortuary on Saint Joseph Blvd, East.
In today's emails, I received a letter from Steve Lopez (pictured below) of Spiritus Films on the topic of praying outside abortion mills. I reproduce it here below as a run up for our vigil.
It's interesting that it often takes a tragedy for God's people to begin praying. For example, I recently found out that my mother had been diagnosed with stage III breast cancer and the first thing I did was pray for God's spirit to comfort her and for His will to be done in her life -- and hopefully that includes healing the cancer so that she can complete her mission to serve Him.
I know that prayer works from my own lack of faith in it.
And I'm sharing this true story in the hopes that it will motivate you to become a prayer warrior outside of your local abortuary. Your prayers are heard and they change the lives of mothers and fathers... and sometimes they change the hearts of an entire city.
God shouldn't have to appear to all of us in a dream and admonish us to pray. He should only have to do it once so that the world can learn from that one shining example. Please share the attached story far and wide. And make sure your pastors read it and share it with their congregations. And encourage them to join the fall 40 Days for Life prayer vigil: www.40daysforlife.com
Please consider posting it to your Facebook page and twitter account. And encourage your friends to do the same. This one prayer warrior was spared so that we could see the light!
I look forward to hearing how your prayers were answered!
