This Thursday was an awesome prayer vigil with Christine & Maribeth. For the few negatives we received, positives were sent our way right away ~ a young man drove by with "the #1 sign" to us. He got caught at the light, so I was able to hold up my rosary & the peace sign & pray for the conversion of his hardened heart all those minutes. Right away a young man drove by & said "God bless you" with a big smile. A young couple pulled up along side of our prayer area wagging their finger at us & shaking their head "no" to us. I said "is it wrong that we are praying for the unborn?." No reply from the couple, just the negative shaking of their heads & wagging their finger at us "no." They definitely don't get it... that the abortion doctors are the ones going against God's law, Thou shalt not kill!!! Right away a car passed us with a peace sign from the passenger & a big smile. The positives toward our little prayer group continued all through the prayer hour, so great to know that most folks get what abortion really is & that we PW's are doing what God asks of all of us to be out there in peaceful prayer for the unborn.
After blessing ourselves with holy water & sprinkling a bit on the ground, Christine read all the opening prayers & then led the Holy Rosary reading a brief Sorrowful Mystery meditation before each Hail Mary. Then she led the Chaplet of Divine Mercy using the booklet with St. Faustina's meditations on The Passion. It was a warm evening with a gentle breeze so we just stood on the grass area by the abortion mill facing traffic in both ways so they could see our signs "Pray to End Abortion " & "The Cost of Abortion" signs with those three darling babies smiling at all who passed us by. I truly believe that those little ones are touching many hearts regarding the evil that abortion is doing to our world. We offered up our prayer vigil for all involved with abortion in any way. We PW's will!!! bring our world back to following God's laws, one person at a time. (Jenny)
We also had two cars who wanted to donate money to our cause -- how generous! We told them thank your for the offer, but that we would rather have their "donation" be prayers for the unborn and money given to pregnancy help centers. It warmed our hearts to see such loving and giving people who support our efforts. Thank You God--may these souls be blessed! (Maribeth)
