40 Days for Life - Houston - Day 3

Story from the Street: Another turn around!

Yesterday, out on the sidewalk people were gathering in solemn prayer for an end to abortion as they held their 40 Days for Life Signs outside the largest abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere. 

A young couple strode from the Planned Parenthood parking lot toward a group of people on the sidewalk and paused at the edge of the driveway.  Then there was this unspoken hesitation - a pause in thought and a few words spoken between the two of them. They turned back toward the massive abortion building. Her heart sinking, one of the sidewalk counselors called out, "You have come this close, don't you want to come talk? We have help available for you."

The young couple made their way back to the car, drove out of the abortion facility's lot and then walked to the Big Blue Bus!  What their decision was we don't know at this point.  But it was clear that the young man was giving her the gentle extra support she felt she needed at that moment. At that moment, he was being the man she needed him to be! 


Thank you all who went out to pray yesterday and through this 40 Days for Life!  

Have you not signed up yet? There is still an opportunity to come pray. Yes, we had 3 churches and individuals from 4 others out there yesterday, we really need the help on Oct 2-4th!  Your prayerful presence can literally help save a life! Please schedule an hour by contacting Theresa@houstoncoalition.com

Thank you Sacred Heart Catholic Church (Pattison) and the group from Mary Queen Catholic Church (Friendswood) for covering the sidewalk in prayer today! 

TOMORROW! You are invited! 

“Name Tag, Not a Price Tag" Prayer Vigil


Outside of Planned Parenthood

Please parallel park along Gulf Crest

We encourage you to come spiritually adopt one of the children who are at risk of being aborted during this 40 Days for Life! We will have a name bracelet that you can take home with you and a matching one that can leave on the Big Blue Bus and we will pray with you for these children by name.  

We believe that even if these children die the horrible death of abortion, they deserve the dignity and respect of being named and not have their bodies dissected and shipped off for profit! 

Please do not bring any graphic signs to this prayer rally. Thank you!


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. Sept 29th, 

Day 3: Intention:  We pray for God's gift of strength as we strive to protect human life during these 40 Days for Life. 

Scripture: Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? -Matthew 6:25-26


Yesterday, the Big Blue Bus was blessed to have 7 visits. Of these women, 2 had negative tests, 1 was returning for a follow-up ultrasound and 4 had new pregnancies. All the women are planning to keep their baby at this point! 
All praise and glory to God! 


If you have not yet signed up for an hour, we still need the help!  

An hour of your time in peaceful prayer outside of the abortion facility could literally help save a life!
