82 lives saved
When prayers go up, abortions often go down. When you commit to a leap of faith and pray for an end to abortion — outside the places where the abortions take place — you won't always see the results. But God uses your presence to save lives.
If you look at the numbers, you can often see the direct impact of the Holy Spirit. Several former abortion workers have told us that the no-show rate for abortion appointments skyrockets when people are outside praying.

St. Louis updates-
LIFEChoice Intern, Faith Otten, shared how it warmed her heart to be surrounded by the prayers of two loving families and various clergy as she sidewalk counseled this afternoon. "Two of my favorite times to be on the sidewalk are when priests and children are present. There is just something so holy and so calming about that type of presence. You can feel it in an almost tangible way...the sun shines a little brighter when they're there."
I challenge you today to consider bringing your family to the sidewalk in this next week. Our society needs holy families- families that reflect the love of Christ and keep this love at their center. Too many times a week, we see young women enter Planned Parenthood alone, apart from their family's love and support. How might it change their lives if we could help them see what it means to have a family that loves them?
As the leaders of our families, let us today ask Jesus to give us a heart as that of a child...so that we may be ready at every moment to love, to forgive and to trust in our Father.
