There are stories of God’s blessings and God’s victories at 40 Days for Life vigils. But there are also stories of pain. There are hearts that are hurting in this battle to end abortion, and they all need your prayers.
As you pray this Sunday, particularly at church, please ask the Lord to share His grace with those who are suffering … and that He will provide the spiritual healing they so desperately need – and can find only in Christ.
“Several abortion business employees huddled together, holding their umbrellas, as they took turns hugging one abortion worker in particular,” she said … wondering what was going on.
A few minutes later, that worker exited the driveway right in front of Wynette and rolled down the car window, ignoring the falling rain.
“I’ve had enough!” the distraught worker called out. “I hate this place! I quit!”
“I cannot say much more,” Wynette said … but she added that the worker asked for prayer.
Wynette encouraged prayer “for all abortion industry employees, in hopes that they would discontinue their involvement in destroying lives and hurting women.”
“I’VE BEEN THERE”
One of the prayer volunteers (I’m keeping the location confidential) tried her level best to convince a young couple to reject abortion and spare their baby.
She poured her heart out. But the pair walked into the abortion center and kept their appointment, and the vigil participant was overcome with a profound sense of failure.
“She came to us totally sobbing,” said one of the local leaders. “You could see her soul with so much pain.”
Once she was able to speak, she told the other members of the team that she had an abortion — “not only once. I had four abortions and helped two other women get abortions. That makes six. This is too much — too much pain I’m bearing.”

One of the other volunteers knew the feeling – all too well. “I’ve been there,” she said, as she began to minister to the other woman. This vigil participant acknowledged that she’d had an abortion, but had experienced recovery and found forgiveness.
The volunteers shared information about healing after abortion with their friend, who was still in tears. “We were able to pray with her and her healing began,” the leader said. Still, the woman felt the need to return to the vigil. “I just want to save a baby,” she said.
