Stand & Pray consists of standing outside of an abortion facility and praying for an end to abortion. There are specifically trained sidewalk counselors who interact with people going into the abortion facility. We pray at 4 locations;
If you are NEW, you are encouraged to come pray outside of Planned Parenthood on I45, Mon-Sat for an hour between 8-2pm and outside of Houston Women's Reproductive Services during the weekly Friday Prayer Vigil (For details, click here.)

Gov. Abbot has issued an Executive Order GA 34 on March 2nd that allows people to not have to wear masks beginning March 10, 2021.

Please be respectful of those who prefer to wear a mask and respectful of those who do not want to wear a mask.

Even before Covid-19, volunteers have been encouraged to avoid conversation and focus on prayer and spread out along the sidewalk.

So if you plan to come out please email a Statement of Peace to
*It is optional to wear a mask

*It is encourage that you space yourselves out
*Don't forget to ALSO pray from home

What is 40 Days for Life?
During Lent in the Spring and covering October, pro-lifers in Houston unite with groups around the world in prayer, fasting, community outreach and peaceful vigil for an end to abortion. Houston Coalition for Life focuses prayer outside of the largest abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere, Planned Parenthood on I45!

During the last Fall 40 Days for Life, we saw 190 babies saved. We continued to interact with the women following new health restrictions with Covid-19 throughout and following the conclusion of the campaign.

The next 40 Days for Life will run from March 2 - April 10, 2022! 
Once again the Houston Coalition for Life and the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston will be co-sponsoring this prayer campaign that runs through Lent!

Forms for 2021 Fall 40 Days for Life!

Year-round join us in a peaceful, prayerful presence...

The most vulnerable among us are innocent, defenseless unborn human beings. These babies have no voice. Their pain, their anguish and their cries are silent. They depend on us to SPEAK UP! They depend on us to ACT in defense of their lives.

This is a unique opportunity to share the pro-life message up to the last possible moment with those entering the Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Get involved year round in 40 Churches for 40 Days and other prayer vigils by staying up to date with our calendar and Facebook.

We know that Stand & Pray works to end abortion in Houston because of these facts:

  1. 1. Prayer works.
  2. 2. Stand & Pray brings attention to the injustice of abortion and the agenda of Planned Parenthood. When Christians begin to consistently Stand & Pray, the public soon realizes that something bad is going on inside those facilities.
  3. 3. Planned Parenthood's employees like to think that the community supports what they do. If nobody is present to object to their deadly agenda they can rationalize their practice. The prayerful presence forces them to realize every day that the community is overwhelmingly opposed to their agenda.
  4. 4. People do not want to receive their healthcare from a place that is controversial. A consistent presence in prayer outside Planned Parenthood will increase the dissatisfaction rate among its clientele making it difficult to maintain customers.
  5. 5. Babies are saved from abortion when people Stand & Pray at Planned Parenthood!
  6. 6. Abortion workers have left the abortion industry when they see pro-lifers as a safety net of hope for when they quit! Many become actively pro-life (like Abby Johnson who was planning to work at Planned Parenthood in Houston)! 
  7. 7. Hearts are converted! The mothers and fathers of unborn children often have a conversion of heart when they see people praying at abortion facilities.

5 Key Reasons To Come Pray Outside of the Abortion Facilities!

  • 1. Most of the women going in are Christian. Your calm, silent prayerful stance (where she can see you) reminds her of all she was taught about God during her life.
  • 2. Many women feel trapped and feel like no one cares.  If you are standing there, she knows people care and she can come to you for help. (Also you can direct her to the Big Blue Bus for assistance.)
  • 3. We stand there for the babies. We showed up for them - spiritually adopting them.  We did not abandon them even if everyone else does.

  • 4. We are a witness to the clinic workers and to a society that tries to normalize abortion.  We remind them by our presence that the deliberate ending of an innocent child is not normal and never can be.  We stand, non-confrontational and not condemning, but simply and honestly as a witness to the dignity of every human life which is created in the image and likeness of God.  (Houston Coalition for Life can direct them to the ATTWN, a program that assists workers in coming out of the abortion industry.)
  • 5. We open up ourselves to God, fulfilling all the spiritual works of mercy.  God uses this time to strengthen us and give us a sense of trust and peace that we cannot experience anywhere else.
