This afternoon as 7 – 8 vigil participants prayed in front of the Community Healthcare Center of Pensacola, a young couple in a VW beetle drove into the facility parking lot.  A young man stepped out of the car smoking a cigarette, but the young woman remained in the car.  Seeing the young couple, the women 40 Days for Life participants began to speak to the young man.  They told him about the painful scar abortion had left on their friends lives and on the lives of their families.  One of the 40 Days for Life participants told the young man about the loss of a niece or nephew to abortion.  She explained to the young man that her sister has never been the same since her abortion.  As she finished telling the young man how abortion affected her family, he looked at the vigil participants, put his cigarette to the ground, and then drove away with the young woman.

We hope and pray that this young couple continues to give life a chance.  It is a good sign that they left the 9th avenue abortion facility.  We pray that God will continue to speak to them.  Please pray for this young couple that they will keep their child.

Thank you to all those that have shown up to pray for life and being a positive example for life.  Keep going.  Keep praying.  Keep fasting.  Keep witnessing to a community hungry for the truth.

If you haven’t gone to pray yet, you need to.  Now more than ever your witness is critical to changing hearts and minds.  God will use you to bring his love and mercy to those that need to hear of his LOVE for them.

Don’t wait another day.  Go.  Pray.  Fast.  Witness.  Life is depending on you.

May the peace of Christ be with you!
