40 Days For Life: DAY 26: Piling up victories

 

image

From lives saved to converted workers to an abortion industry in complete disarray, pro-life victories are piling up across the country and around the world.

Two states at the forefront of the pro-life surge are Indiana and Ohio.

Case in point: Indiana’s abortion rate is the lowest it’s been since 1975!

Recently, 40 Days for Life Board Chair and General Counsel Matt Britton spoke at midpoint rallies in both states and saw first-hand how everyday heroes are transforming their communities from the ground up.

At two of the events, Matt was joined by bestselling author Bud Macfarlane, who also spoke and gave out free copies of his books.

Prayer warriors had some less enjoyable company as well: unhinged pro-abortion activists. But those abortion supporters couldn’t put a damper on vigil participants’ enthusiasm for how God is responding to their prayers.

Here’s Matt’s report from the Hoosier and Buckeye states.

Bloomington, Indiana

“A great group of faithful showed up and prayed and sang,” Matt reported.

Two sets of protesters came to oppose the vigil…but they stayed less than five minutes!

Prior to Matt’s visit, a young couple exited Planned Parenthood crying, just 10 minutes after they arrived.

“We can’t do it,” they told vigil participants, who directed them to the pregnancy help center next door!

Indianapolis, Indiana

“Great midpoint rally with the folks in Indy,” Matt said. “Tim, Mary, Linda, and the team put on a great showing.”

Upon his arrival, Matt was pleasantly surprised to find Planned Parenthood closed for Columbus Day.

“I wish they were patriotic enough to stop killing little Americans every day.”

Columbus, Ohio

A protester attended the Columbus rally, blasting loud, thumping, obscene music to try and drown out the event. She even posed in the 40 Days for Life participant group photo, wearing a black t-shirt that said, “Abortion: You do you.”

Her antics were no match for the prayers of the Dominican Sisters of Ann Arbor, who brought their school students out to pray. When one of the sisters led a closing prayer, the woman covered her face.

“We prayed for her, also,” Matt said. “The devil was shouting, so we know we are winning.”

These all wait for you, that you may give them their food in due season, what you give them they gather in; you open your hand, they are filled with good. You hide your face, they are troubled; you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. You send forth your Spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the earth.

Psalm 104:27-30

Beloved Father, remind us today that there is no truth but you. Do not let us fall prey to the evil one’s lie that we may choose death. Remind us right now that you, who created all life, are in control of all life, and let us know right now that you who created all life, are in control of all life, and let us choose life always. Keep lighting the pathway home, for us and for all who participate in this 40 Days for Life campaign.

40 Days For Life: DAY 25: From homeless to hero

image

image

Just a few years ago, JC Carpenter was homeless.

After spending years numbing the pain of her three abortions with drugs and alcohol, she found herself living in an alley.

JC had hit rock bottom…but God wasn’t done with her yet.

If you already subscribe to Day 41 magazine–40 Days for Life’s free quarterly magazine–you know the rest of the story.

JC returned to God, confessed her abortions to hundreds of Christians at a National Day of Prayer breakfast, and now helps lead the 40 Days for Life campaign in Yuba City, California.

She knows of at least a dozen babies she has personally helped save from abortion–the most recent, which took place this campaign…on her birthday!

If you missed the fall issue of Day 41, there’s still time to get your free subscription before the December edition goes to press.

Subscribe now for an EXCLUSIVE feature about a woman who was on her way for her FIFTH abortion–until Toledo, Ohio 40 Days for Life leader Peter Range offered to adopt her baby.

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Nobody can convey the pain and horror of abortion like a woman who’s been through it.

This post-abortive mother made a powerful sign to start conversations with abortion-bound women in Grand Rapids.

image

Green Bay, Wisconsin

When a homeless veteran approached the 40 Days for Life vigil asking how to find a city bus that would get him to a local shelter, campaign participants decided to offer more than directions.

“This gentleman needed to use a walker, and it was a cold, windy, rainy night,” wrote Christine in Green Bay.

An on-site prayer warrior treated him to a meal at a local restaurant and then drove him personally to the shelter.

“I saw Jesus Christ today in my [vigil participant] but also in that homeless gentleman,” Christine said.

image

Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

— Jeremiah 1:4-5

Lord God, we confess that in You we live and move and have our being. Because You are, we are. May we find grace from You to affirm the being of every human and may we labor to make this truth known to the world around us.

40 Days For Life: DAY 24: Meet 2 former abortion workers

 

image

Since 2007, 191 abortion workers have converted and left their jobs through a 40 Days for Life campaign.

This is often a long, tough, and beautiful journey that shows the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.

This fall, the 40 Days for Life headquarters team’s two former abortion workers have visited dozens of vigils to pray with and encourage prayer warriors…

…but before they hit the road, former abortion provider Dr. Haywood Robinson and longtime Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer joined me on The 40 Days for Life Podcast to provide an insider’s view of the abortion industry:

Torrance, California

Sue’s visit to Torrance drew the attention of the abortion center manager, who came out to meet her.

There weren’t any signs that conversion was imminent, but Sue planted seeds.

Sue also met a cardiac surgeon who said 40 Days for Life participants are heroes. He noted that while he saves a life every month or so, 40 Days for Life saves countless lives every day!

image

St. Cloud, Minnesota

Judy in St. Cloud said recent 40 Days for Life rallies have drawn up to 50 attendees…

…but a recent visit from Haywood more than doubled that mark as 120 people showed up. “Families, teenagers, college kids, and lots of adults of all ages,” Judy noted.

After Haywood spoke, the crowd processed to Planned Parenthood for a candlelight vigil.

“Keep in mind, the temperature was only 32 degrees Fahrenheit!

Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name.

— Nehemiah 1:10-11

We pray for your continued guidance and protection throughout the remainder of this 40-day campaign. May we be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in Your work, knowing that our labor will not be in vain.

Judie Brown: “Marian Blue wave reaches global status”

 
Judie Brown column


October 17, 2019

This past week has shown us that the Blessed Mother is truly in charge! After only one week, we are happy to announce that we surged past our goal of 1,000 signees, will be over 1,100 by tomorrow morning, AND we have officially gone global! Along with hundreds of commitments in the United States, we have received commitments in Canada, India, Australia, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Brazil! It seems as if the Marian Blue Wave will cover a MUCH larger area than we first expected.

Those who join the Marian Blue Wave have pledged to offer up one Rosary a week with the specific intention of ending abortion in the United States and shutting down abortion facilities. This tried-and-true method has worked before, and we are confident it will work now.

No matter where you are, you can join the Marian Blue Wave. What we thought was just a national campaign, is now global! If we have seen this amount of progress in only one week, just imagine where we will be next week, next month, or even next year!

If you have not yet joined, it’s not too late! We are now more confident than ever that the Marian Blue Wave will TRULY be the end of all abortion. . . . [Click for more]

Mary TV: October 18, 2019 Reflection – Thank you, St. Luke!

(c)Mary TV/Anthony Zubac

October 18, 2019
St. Luke, Evangelist

Dear Family of Mary!

To Jelena:

“I’m going to reveal a spiritual secret to you: if you want to be stronger than evil, make yourself a plan of personal prayer. Take a certain time in the morning, read a text from Holy Scripture, anchor the Divine word in your heart, and strive to live it during the day, particularly during the moment of trials. In this way, you will be stronger than evil.” (April 19, 1984)

Our Lady gave us a spiritual secret! Secrets are always one to one. So, this secret is just for you. Our Lady wants you to be protected from the evil one. And she knows that the words of Sacred Scripture are a great defense against him. The words of Scripture can fend off temptation, like a sword can fend off an enemy. It says in Ephesians 6 that we need to put on the whole armor of God, which includes “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Eph 6:17). With the words of Scripture firmly planted in our hearts each day, you can withstand the temptations of the devil.

Today is the Feast of St. Luke, the Evangelist. St. Luke wrote much of the New Testament, including his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. He wrote the most about Our Lady of any Evangelist!!! Let’s read his anointed words about the coming of Jesus in time, His Incarnation and the Visitation. What a joy it is to know all these wonderful things about Jesus and Mary!

Luke, 1:26-56

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be.

And 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 bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to 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.”

And Mary said to the angel, “How shall this be, since I have no husband?”     

And the angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore, the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.”

And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”

And the angel departed from her.

In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechari’ah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”

And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is on those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm,
he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts,
he has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and exalted those of low degree;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his posterity forever.”

And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home. (Lk 1:26-56)

Thank you, St. Luke, for giving us these sacred words that teach us, generation after generation, about the love and the mercy of God and the glory of His coming through Mary. Amen!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
