Stand & Pray

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.)

Spring 2022 Leadership Letter of INtroduction

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.

40 Days for Life is a unique opportunity to share the pro-life message up to the last possible moment with women entering the Planned Parenthood abortion facility. If you would like to sign up for vigil hours please click here.

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 what is happening inside of that building is not OK.
  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.
