Abortionist Doesn’t Show Up After Pro-Lifers Pray Abortion Clinic Would Close

For the abortion industry, abortion is a business – and businesses need customers. We have observed a trend … and so has the abortion industry: 40 Days for Life vigils are bad for business.

Some abortion centers have cut their hours. Others have cancelled abortion days. God uses your prayerful presence … in ways you might not be aware of.

But first, today – here’s a special treat!




(You can certainly feel free to watch the entire program, but you can zip ahead to the 40 Days for Life portion at the 22:20 mark.)

The global network’s news program recently had a 40 Days for Life double feature – a report from the sidewalk featuring Mike Baldwin, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Manassas, Virginia along with several prayer volunteers … followed by an in-studio interview with our national director, David Bereit.




Curt notes that it’s hard to reach the women approaching the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Thousand Oaks, so early one morning the volunteers prayed that God would do something – anything!

“We prayed there would be confusion among the staff,” he said. “We prayed that clients would not find the facility. We prayed that the abortionist’s car would not start. Or she would lose her keys. You get the idea, right?”

About two hours later, a car stopped in front of the vigil participants on its way out of the parking lot. The driver rolled down his window and said, “You guys got lucky today. The abortion doctor never showed up!”

“We stood there in awe for a moment as he drove away,” Curt said, “then realized that God had just answered our prayer! Hallelujah! Oh, what a great and faithful God we serve!”




“Good news!!!” read the email from Marcia in Virginia Beach.

What news was so good that it rated three exclamation marks? “There were no abortions done today at Planned Parenthood,” she said. “This is the first Tuesday in memory that they have not committed abortions on a Tuesday. Praise God!”




Even on non-abortion days, prayer volunteers are seeing a decline in business.

“A nurse did not show up at Planned Parenthood and they were having to turn people away,” said Hannah in Riverside. “The parking lot looked deserted.”



Please join all the volunteers in 306 communities in prayer and fasting for an end to abortion. Here’s the link to the list of locations:
