40 Days for Life - Houston - Day 24

"At the Right Place at the Right Time."

One bilingual pro-life woman was getting into her car to drive away, when she heard a knock on her window.  A fellow pro-lifer had asked her to wait a moment so they could pass along something to her.  Realizing she would need to wait a few more minutes, the woman decided to get out of her car and pray a little longer on the sidewalk.  Just a few minutes later, she looked over and saw a woman crying behind the steering wheel.  The bilingual pro-lifer went over to her and was able to reach out to her to comfort her in Spanish and she offered the crying woman information for our Big Blue Bus.  The woman did not want to converse, but she did take the information before driving away. 

One of the other Stand & Pray participants commented that it was good that she spoke Spanish and was right there just at that moment. There are not a lot of bilingual sidewalk counselors that come out, especially during the week. 

Yes, this is one of those instances where we have the consolation that God has allowed "the seed to be planted."  He allows us to be there just "at the right place at the right time." Would you come pray, if you knew you're prayers were needed and all you had to do to help save a life was to be at the right place at the right time?  

Please come join us in prayer on the sidewalk, not just during the 40 Days for Life, but year round!  Your peaceful, prayerful, presence can literally help to save a life! 


As we unite with the International 40 Days for Life and their 375 locations around the world in prayer, we pray with them a specific prayer intention and scripture verse. 

Oct 20th, Day 24: 

Intention:  Pray that God will continue to bless the efforts that have gone into the 40 Days for Life campaign, as we trust Him for the results. 

Scripture:  Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name. - Nehemiah 1:10-11


Thursday, the Big Blue Bus was blessed to have 5 visits. Of these women, 2 had a negative pregnancy test, 1 has a new pregnancy and 2 came for a follow up visit. At this point, all of these moms are planning to parent. Please keep these women in your prayers!

All praise and glory to God!
