In 2007, 40 Days for Life began their campaign to end abortion through prayer, fasting, and peaceful all-day vigils outside abortion centers.
While some may doubt the effectiveness of prayer – their latest 2021 spring campaign reveals more than 500 babies’ lives have been saved due to faithful prayer warriors!
And once you hear the incredible ways prayer has stopped the barbaric act of abortion from claiming yet another innocent life, you’re bound to be touched.
Once women arrive at abortion clinics, escorts rush them inside, hoping they won’t get the chance to be prayed over by those working to stop abortion.
Sadly, many women who arrive at abortion clinics are scared and believe abortion is their only option.
But thanks to faithful prayer warriors and pro-life activists who volunteer their time tirelessly to help these women – not every woman ends up getting an abortion.
In fact, the recent 2021 40 Days for Life campaign reports that over 500 babies were saved as their mothers chose life!
In California, several different women approached these prayer warriors sobbing, and having seen others pray for them moved their hearts and caused them to choose life.
40 Days for Life reported:
“Two different women on two different days approached vigil participants crying.
“Both of these young women sobbed, [saying] that they saw the signs and the people praying,” reported Michael, the Chula Vista 40 Days for Life leader.
One of the women was two months pregnant. The other was being forced to have an abortion.
But both chose life!
“When we are seen holding our signs in prayer, it can be a sign from God that changes a woman’s heart,” Michael said.”
We must never underestimate the power of prayer.
While the abortion industry is wrapped up in darkness, one cannot deny the effectiveness of a faithful prayer warrior’s ability to bring the healing light of Christ to those who are hurting.
The stories of prayer stopping abortion are countless.
Another woman from California recalled how “freaked out” she was once she stepped foot inside an abortion clinic.
She had already seen an ultrasound and knew she was having a boy, but due to a strained relationship with the baby’s father, she was going to have an abortion.
That is until she came face to face with prayer warriors outside the abortion clinic who never stopped praying for her.
The woman had exchanged phone numbers with the praying women, and while she ended up walking out of the abortion clinic that day without getting an abortion, she was still undecided whether or not she would get an abortion.
After vigil warriors hadn’t heard from her for a few weeks, they checked in and received the best text message ever.
The woman replied to their message and said, “You guys really made an impact on me. I’ve decided NOT to have an abortion,” 40 Days for Life reported.
Stories like these show us there is always hope.
Let us never assume every woman walking into an abortion clinic is dead set on ending the life of her precious baby.
We must continue to not only pray for these pregnant women but walk alongside them and show them abortion isn’t their only option.
Praise God for the faithfulness of these prayer warriors!
May we all continue to pray for those considering abortion – that they, too, will choose life.
