Email for Feb 16th, Day 2 of the 40 Days for Life - Houston!
You are a lifeline of hope!
In a world that has so many problems, random shootings and so much despair, it is a treasure to be a part of a pro-life community that shows respect, love and peace in the work against the violence of abortion. When these pregnant women are tempted to abort, they are not looking for a surgery, they are looking for a way out of a crisis.
One of our staff members spoke with a girl who was post abortive and had come in to find out if she was currently pregnant. During the peer-counseling session, she shared that she had not wanted an abortion and she would never do it again, but at the time she felt she had no support. She said there was no one on the sidewalk, but "if there had been, I don't know what I would have done. I just wanted one person, just one, to tell me could do it - I could have my baby."
Thank you to those who come out to pray and be that person. Thank you for showing YOU care and yes, you have confidence the God will make away for both mother and child! (Read full blog here...)
Thank you to those who came out from Mary Queen Catholic Church for covering the sidewalk in prayer today and each Friday!
NEWS FROM BIG BLUE
Yesterday, the Big Blue Bus was blessed to have 7 visits.
Of these women, 2 had a negative test, 3 had a positive test and 2 came for a repeat visit.
At this point, all of these moms are planning to parent.
On Baby Blue, we were blessed to have two clients who each chose life for their unborn child!
Please keep these women in your prayers!
All praise and glory to God!
As we unite with the International 40 Days for Life and their 354 locations around the world in prayer, we pray with them a specific prayer intention and scripture verse.
Tomorrow, Feb 17th, Day 4:
Intention: May the mystery of the Incarnation increase our zeal for defending life.
Scripture: Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end." - Luke 1:30-33
