Turnaways From Planned Parenthood

“Ask and you shall receive….seek and you shall find….knock and the door shall be opened.”

The power of prayer was evident again last week with 3 more turnaways from the Planned Parenthood abortuary! One mother, knowing for certain she was pregnant, was scheduled for her first appointment and on the path for an abortion. Two more women opted to go across the street that same day….Praise God! All went over to the Women’s Care Center learning that avenues other than abortion exist.

Recently the Women’s Care Center reported that, since their opening in January 2012, 50 babies have been saved! Prayers answered!

We need your prayers to add to this number; check out the number of open hours below…..

Open Hours This Week – PLEASE HELP!

Can you take an hour or more this week to pray on the sidewalk? There are MANY openings and many souls for whom to pray. It is our duty; it is Our Lord’s command.

40 Days for Life Sign-Up Time

We are only 16 days away from our fall campaign. Have you signed up for hours yet? Has your parish or group committed to a 2-hour time slot yet? Men – have you signed up for those night time prayer slots? (Some say this is a beautiful, quiet time to spend in prayer!)

The calendar is gradually filling but many choices are still available – ESPECIALLY ON THE WEEKENDS! Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have all hours spoken for BEFORE the start on September 25th? Please don’t delay! Go to vigilforlife.org/calendar/monthview, contact Bette Weisshaar at (608) 358-5963 or by email at info@vigilforlife.org to sign up today.
