Deacon John,

You know, 40 Days for Life is bad for the abortion business.

As we get about four weeks into a campaign, we often see a trend developing — abortion centers cutting hours and closing on days when abortions are usually done.

We’ve heard from one location where the staff simply didn’t show up — no reason was given.

At another facility, the abortionist arrived — but left ten minutes later because there were no clients.

Your prayerful witness is effective!

Please pray that this trend continues — and that some of these abortion businesses may close permanently!

California continues to turn out huge crowds across the state!

West Covina (just west of Los Angeles) just shattered the UNITED attendance record with more than 350 at their rally. Two children saved from abortion at past 40 Days for Life campaigns were present — Sam Ray, who’s now 6 years old, and Leia, who’s now 5. They joined the hundreds of attendees in signing the bus.

We were also heard from the director of a pregnancy center that is located inside a former abortion center in La Puente — a business that closed following 40 Days for Life campaigns outside its doors.

image

Our first vigil stop of the day, in Santa Maria, was packed with people who have prayed outside the local Planned Parenthood for years. Before we left, a local pro-life leader asked everyone to lay hands on the bus and pray for the ongoing success of the campaign and tour.

The fantastic California turnout continued in beautiful Santa Barbara. In addition to the 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers, a number of media teams came out to the event — and so did several Planned Parenthood workers who were listening and taking pictures. All the while, the crowd prayed for them to have a change of heart.

In Ventura, dedicated prayer volunteers gathered outside Planned Parenthood to greet us — and here again, abortion workers couldn’t resist coming outside to watch and listen.

As was the case in other stops, news reporters were on hand to cover the event. In fact, we’ve seen more mainstream media coverage here in California than any of the previous 35 states we visited.

About 100 people gathered to pray and stand for life on the narrow sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood in Palmdale, California. Irene Zamorano from Silent No More Awareness offered her compelling post-abortion testimony, promoting a newspaper reporter to follow up with her afterwards.

God is good — all the time!

Our state rally in Honolulu, Hawaii was quite a bit warmer than the previous night’s snow-laden rally in Anchorage, but the high enthusiasm remained.

image

About 100 people packed the sidewalks, including new volunteers coming out for the first time this fall. Joe, the local leader, reports that throughout his years of service leading 40 Days for Life, Planned Parenthood’s business hours have continuously decreased. May that trend continue until the facility closes forever!

Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgressions of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. He will again have compassion on us; and will subdue our iniquities.

Micah 7:18-19

Heavenly Father, eternal, changeless, and faithful Lord, we recognize that we are in need of forgiveness as a nation, for turning our hearts away from you. Hear our prayer of repentance Lord and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We praise you for your tender mercies and your compassion that never fails. Lord, it is only by Your grace that we can live lives that are just, and merciful.
