I’ve had hundreds of women and men tell me about their abortion experiences.
The pain, regret and sorrow of an abortion does not go away overnight. And the rhetoric of the abortion industry and the slogans of politicians do not bring healing.
Whether it’s a woman who had an abortion 10, 20, or even 30 years ago — or a boyfriend who paid for an abortion — the pain is there. Your prayer presence is often an invitation to healing.
“Can we talk?” is a frequent question at a vigil from strangers who just walk up. It could be some who’s thinking about abortion … or someone who’s has an abortion.
Seeing the prayer vigil day after day serves as a witness to God’s love and mercy.
40 Days for Life is certainly a conversation starter. Sometimes that conversation may have been decades in the making … so never underestimate how God will use your presence!
