40 Days for Life - Houston - Day 7

Rain or Shine - LOVE helps save lives!

 Today, out on the sidewalk, there were two more "turn-aways" thanks to sacrifices made today including the discomfort of standing in the rain!  Thank you to Love Let's Live led by Pamela of PowerHouse Church and ATTWN for covering the sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in prayer today! 

"I always tell them about Margaret Sanger!"  One of the young women who comes out to pray has her own powerful testimony that she shares on the sidewalk, and she knows her audience. Clients entering that Planned Parenthood are horrified to learn of the abortion industry's racist roots including the ties that Margaret Sanger had to the KKK. "I tell them to google it if they don't believe me. Then they are educating themselves..."  "Racism is a concern in the pulse of the African American community right now," added Pamela. 

You can watch an interview recording of Margaret Sanger and hear her own words online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsrOPDdbTzM

The young woman, out there today, and several other sidewalk counselors want to build awareness of this abortion giant's racist roots as well as Planned Parenthood's continuous promotion of Sanger's philosophy.   Hopefully this knowledge will help prevent those girls, most targeted by the abortion industry, from returning for so-called "reproductive health services" especially when there are so many places to go for actual women's health services: HealthyTexasWomen.org     



(1) From a sidewalk counselor, we have learned of a young woman who is early on in her pregnancy and is scheduled to abort on Friday.  Please pray for her to change her mind and choose life! 

(2) Today, a mother-in-law is trying to help save the life of her grandchild who is at risk of being aborted.

(3)  A young woman who changed her mind about abortion and choose life for her baby is now at risk of being unable to complete the pregnancy and might lose the child she loves!  Please pray for her and her baby and her doctors, that if she has to go into early labor, may she and the baby have a healthy recovery!    



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 3rd, Day 7: 

Intention:  May we have a heart and a zeal to save the poor and release the oppressed. 

Scripture: The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed. - Luke 4:18-19


Monday, the Big Blue Bus was blessed to have to 12 visits. Of these women who came, 8 had new pregnancies and 4 were returning for a follow up visit. At this point, all are planning to parent. Please keep all of these women in your prayers! All praise and glory to God! 

We could use more help tomorrow! 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!
