Increasing Number of Participants Praying
October 28, 2016 (Cincinnati, OH) – From Cincinnati campaign leader, Mary Clark…
Thanks to those who responded to my last plea for vigil coverage. In just three days we reduced our open hours from 42 to 20!
I was talking to one of our faithful vigil participants today and he relayed that one of his young adult sons had called him earlier in this 40 Days for Life campaign just to say hello. His son asked him what he had done that morning.
The father told of his morning routine and then said that he had spent an hour in prayer at Planned Parenthood and was reflecting on and praying for all those involved in or affected by abortion from the abortionists to the pregnant women and their husbands or boyfriends, and other family members. He expressed to his son that along with this he was thinking about all the turmoil in the world at this time.
This made an impression on his son who then himself decided to come to Planned Parenthood to give his public prayer witness. On another occasion, the son even asked his father if they couldn’t spend an hour at Planned Parenthood in prayer together.
They took turns leading prayer and at one point the son suggested they kneel for part of their prayer. The father was rightly not only proud of his son, but so grateful for the graces to which the son had responded. I was uplifted also.
Don’t hesitate to let others in your life know about your witness and public prayer for the unborn. Maybe they will join you the next time you come to pray.
Join us at Planned Parenthood for our two final Friday Group Prayer Vigils – Fri. Oct. 28th and Nov. 4th – 7:00-8:00pm and on the final day of the campaign, come to our Rosary Rally at Planned Parenthood, Sunday, Nov. 6th at 3pm when our prayer leader and speaker will be Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Binzer.
