Your Prayers for Life Save Lives

For You From The Word

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt. (James 1:5-6, NIV)

For You To Think About

Have you ever wondered whether or not your prayers for life have an impact?

40 Days for life in Schenectady, NYIf so, you’re not alone. It’s one of the most frequent questions posed to staff workers for 40 Days for Life, a 40-day nationwide campaign of volunteer, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer outside local abortion facilities.

Recently, prayer volunteers in Schenectady, NY wondered whether the vigil in front of a local women’s clinic was making a difference. Several discussed the question amongst themselves. They even asked God to encourage them. It didn’t take long to get an answer.

Early in the morning, a man approached the group. The week before, he explained, he and his girlfriend had seriously considered abortion. When they came to the clinic, they had spoken to a woman outside who was participating in the vigil. She showed them fetal models and helped them understand what their baby looked like at that point in the pregnancy.

After the couple left, they realized there was no way they could have an abortion. The father-to-be had returned to the clinic to thank the woman for helping them make the right decision.

“We were emotionally overcome,” said one volunteer. “God sent confirmation that our prayers and presence make all the difference.”

God tells us to ask Him for wisdom. If you’re seeking encouragement about whether or not your prayers for life make a difference, ask God for that insight.

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,
You tell us that when we lack wisdom, we can ask in faith and You will give it to us. Right now, I ask for Your wisdom, insight, and encouragement on behalf of those who are praying for women to choose life. Show these prayer warriors how their prayers and faithfulness are making a difference.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
