October 31, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-SEVEN - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE



That is HORROR -- and it happens in our neighborhoods every day!
This frightening TRUTH leaves behind blood, guts, and gore in buckets -- and we should take 
time out to SEE what our LEGAL LAWS leave in their wake....not only the dismembered and discarded little bodies, but the broken women and men who have believed the lies and need healing and our understanding.
PRAY TO END ABORTION!


7:00 a.m. Vigil

The 7a-8a vigil was warm, rainy, and dark.  Two prayer warriors, one standing at attention and one pacing back and forth prayed for the light of truth to shine upon the hearts and souls of all those considering abortion and all those promoting abortion. The morning vigil is so special. There are few distractions and much peace to prayerfully plead for an end to abortion and the healing of those who have participated in abortion in any way. We also pray for those who have yet to realize each person's need to defend life from conception to natural death. (Sue K )


6:00 p.m. Vigil

May all our young ones be safe this evening if they go out for their candy & as we celebrate All Saints Day on Friday at Holy Mass, we ask our dear Saints in Heaven to continue to pray along with us every time we stand at an abortion mill peacefully, lovingly shedding light on this sad place.  

Even though it was raining, it was in the high 50's so no problem, just that the wind gusts every now & then knocked us around a bit. We walked back & forth under our umbrellas as Maribeth offered up our intentions for the hour then she led the Holy Rosary giving a beautiful Luminous Mystery meditation before each decade. We then sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the conversion of abortionists & Maribeth said our closing prayer from her heart ~ just wonderful. After the Pledge of Allegiance we hugged good bye & were on our way home. No young ones to give our candy to ~ I must say I indulged on WAY TOO MANY little packets of M&M's, I'm a "shveenia" ~ that's Polish for piggy  :o) 

All Saints Day tomorrow so Maribeth & I will be leaving at 6:45 to go to 7:00 p.m. Holy Mass at St. Malachy. Join us if you can.  (Jenny)

October 30, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-SIX - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE

BE INSPIRED TO TAKE THE STAND FOR LIFE!
(March for Life in Washington, D.C. - January 2013)



6:00 p.m. Vigil

Maribeth, Ray & I walked back & forth along our sacred prayer area on the grass holding our pro-life signs, saying all the opening prayers, sharing holy water & offering up our prayer intentions for the hour.  Ray led the Holy Rosary with Maribeth reading a brief Glorious Mystery before each Hail Mary.  A beautiful blessing was given to us as a young woman drove up & stopped to talk a bit & to thank us for being out there. We discussed the hurt that abortion causes to so many & we promised to never stop praying for the end of this horrid evil happening right here in our neighborhoods. These mills will be closed through our peaceful prayers & our loving, kind assistance to those who stop by to ask us for help. Jesus, we trust in You!!! A few young boys asked as they were riding their bikes near us "is this your job?" We said no, we just pray here one hour each night for the unborn & they could see the darling babies on our pro-life signs. Maribeth mentioned how this will be in their minds as they grow into young men. Hopefully abortion will be over by that time & if not, how beautiful it would be for them to be here praying with us. One of them always says "God bless you" as he rides his bike by us.  For the conversion of abortionists, we sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy & closed with the Pledge of Allegiance, said our good byes & realized that it was going to be a lot!!! colder very soon & as I type this, it is raining, windy & chilly outside & we must definitely dress in layers from now on ~ or until our Michigan weather changes back to 65.  (Jenny)

October 29, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-FIVE- FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE



~~ Philippians 4:8 ~~
 
I faced WomanCare with my two pro-life signs toward traffic, blest myself with holy water, sprinkled a bit on the ground around me & began the opening prayers & immediately a positive happened & they continued the rest of the prayer hour. A young man walking by said "Hello, how are you doing?" with a big smile on his face looking at my pro-life signs.  I said "great, how about you."  He said " very cold, like you."  I said, "we prayer warriors know to dress in layers, so I'm just fine." We both laughed & he was on his way.  I finished my opening prayers & said/sang the Holy Rosary reading a brief Sorrowful Mystery before singing each Hail Mary offered up for all involved in abortion in any way & for the conversion of abortionists I sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The nail folks said good night & as it was getting dark I moved under the light for the last 15 minutes of my prayer time out there. I closed with saying the Pledge of Allegiance looking at that beautiful American flag on the other side of the street. (Jenny)

October 28, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-FOUR - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE

THIS IS TERROR!

Paul had stopped by to pray at WomanCare abortion mill after praying at the Southfield location. God bless him!!! We said our hello & good bye as his prayers ended & mine began.  I faced WomanCare with my two pro-life signs toward traffic, blest myself with holy water, sprinkled a bit on the ground around me & began the opening prayers.  A jogger in shorts!!! yikes!!! it was in the mid 40's & a bit windy but he ran past me with a big smile & thumbs up as well as a few boys riding their bikes past me with smiles. Great to see the young ones understand why we are out there in peaceful prayer & smile to encourage us. I finished my opening prayers & said/sang the Holy Rosary reading a brief Luminous  Mystery before singing each Hail Mary. Heard happy honks throughout my prayer time out there. My prayer intentions were as always ~ for all involved in abortion in any way & for the conversion of abortionists I sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Ended with the Pledge of Allegiance & was glad to get into my car to warm up a bit on the way home, although it is not terribly cold yet ~ but we Michiganders know its coming, don't we. (Jenny)

October 27, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-THREE - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE




2:30 p.m. Vigil with St. Thecla
St. Thecla's Parish represented by about 30 people were led in prayer by Fr. Prill.  We sang Let There Be Peace, and said prayers to St. Gianna Molla. Then we prayed the Holy Rosary.  When we pray the Rosary we are joined by all of the saints and angels! So powerful.  What an uplifting and encouraging experience. There were several young people in our group.  We closed with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and "God Bless America"  In God we trust! (Sue K)
What an amazing group from St. Thecla!  Thank you for coming out to pray!!


6:00 p.m. Vigil



I faced WomanCare abortion mill with my two pro-life signs toward traffic, blest myself with holy water, sprinkled a bit on the ground around me & began the opening prayers.  A drive-by screamer yelled "go home you dumb ass."  I immediately turned toward his car & sure enough, that coward got stopped at the light so I held up my rosary with praying hands & sang the Our Father for his misguided, hardened heart & soul.  He was stuck there quite a while so I'm sure he could see me in his rearview mirror praying for him. Lord, heal him. Amen!!!

Maribeth arrived ~ yeah!!! We talked about the story of the ass whose owner starved him for three days then placed him in the middle of the town with fresh hay at one end & St. Francis holding our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament at the other end of town & that ass walked over to our Lord & knelt down in front of Him, so you see, being called a dumb ass means nothing to me. Maribeth then took over reading the rest of the opening prayers & we walked back & forth along our grass prayer area which we consider sacred ground because of the precious little ones being slaughtered at WomanCare abortion mill at least once a week. We pray for those tiny little babies who end up as little baby body pieces tossed away like trash into the red bucket. We know they are immediately with God in Heaven but man what a horrid death, trying to get away from the clamps & knife jabbing at them, just horrid!!!

Lord, help their moms & dads & the abortionists realize what they have done & humbly beg You to forgive them. You are such a merciful God & will do so. We heard happy honks, saw smiles, thumbs up & then another negative drive-by screamer "abortion is a right."  Yeah, right ~ 7 unelected folks decided it was legal for a woman to go into one of those places to have her baby savagely removed piece by tiny piece from her tummy.  Lord, forgive us for we know not what we are doing. 

Maribeth gave a beautiful reflection before each Joyful Mystery then read a brief meditation before each Hail Mary. She closed our prayer hour with a beautiful prayer of thanksgiving for all the PW's & HPW's this campaign & other blessings we are so thankful for, the babies saved in various places because of our peaceful prayers & she asked God to please end this scourge in our world of unborn babies being brought to these places all over the world by their own mothers to be killed.  Our people are in such a mess!!! We then faced the American flag & said the Pledge of Alligence. We were blest with a most glorious sky, bright blue to the south & huge clouds, one looking like the Holy Spirit ready to pounce on Satan & the other one, oh my gosh, it looked like Christ on the cross. We could see His arms stretched up & his face bent toward his left side. It gave us tears in our eyes. Man, what a beautiful way to end our day.  Hugs good bye & I picked up my carry out from My Pizza Place then home to relax as we get ready for another work week & our last week of 40 Days for Life ~ can hardly believe it. I will then go back to my 6pm Thursday night prayer vigil & invite all of you to join me when your schedules allow. It would be good for you to be out there with me (Jenny)

October 26, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-TWO - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE





6:00 p.m. Vigil

Facing WomanCare abortion mill with my two pro-life signs toward traffic, I blest myself with holy water, sprinkled a bit on the ground around me & holding my umbrella against the rain & wind began the opening prayers.  It was a bit difficult to manage all my prayer cards plus hold my umbrella & then all of a sudden half way through the opening prayers the rain stopped & the wind slowed down ~ so great.  I closed up my umbrella & finished the prayers & offered up my hour for all involved in abortion in any way. A car stopped before making a left-hand turn & the passenger window rolled down & the young woman said "don't stop" & gave me a big smile & thumbs up. No problem, we PW's will be praying out there until the place closes & hopefully!!! a pro-life clinic takes over. I then said/sang the Holy Rosary reading a brief Glorious Mystery before each Hail Mary. Next I sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the conversion of all abortionists & turned toward the beautiful American flag & said the Pledge of Allegiance. All positives this evening. With the wind slowing down, it was not that bad, plus it's only an hour & I can offer that up for this good cause ~ that the little ones parents will chose LIFE for them.  (Jenny)

October 25, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY-ONE - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE


life....it's what we stand for


6:00 p.m. Vigil
I faced WomanCare abortion mill, blest myself with holy water, sprinkled a bit on the ground around me & began the opening prayers.  Maribeth arrived ~ yeah!!!! She took oven reading the rest of the opening payers after offering up our intentions for the prayer hour as we walked to keep warm along the grass area holding our pro-life signs. She offered up a heartfelt reflection at the start of each Sorrowful Mystery & read a brief meditation before each Hail Mary. Louise arrived ~ yeah!!! We three PW's peacefully prayed with the chilly wind reminding us it is now turning into winter here in Michigan.

A van slowed down & the lady said "God bless you, stay warm."  We thanked her for the encouragement which warms our hearts. We had a Drive-by screamer but we could not make out what he had said, we prayed for the healing of his hateful heart. Positives the rest of the hour. We closed singing the Chaplet of Divine Mercy as always for the conversion of all abortionists then turned toward our beautiful American flag & said the Pledge of Allegiance, good bye hugs & into our cars to warm up.  (Jenny)






October 24, 2013 -- DAY THIRTY - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE



Tonight is was very chilly!!  Regina and Ray were already at the clinic when I arrived (thank You Jesus!).  Jenny was praying from home--lots of HOT projects that were due immediately from her boss--we missed you!  The three of us said the Rosary--praying the Sorrowful Mysteries (which are very appropriate for an abortion clinic).  We said spontaneous prayers for the abortionists and all those who pass us by and just don't get it.  We did see one thumbs down and prayed for that lost soul, but the positives outweighed the negatives!!  Regina said she had a great turnout yesterday morning for St. Martin de Porres Adopt a Day -- yeah!!!  We finished our prayer vigil praying for all those men and women who would be going to the abortion clinics tomorrow morning.  We asked the Holy Spirit to touch their hearts so they would realize that the baby they are carrying is a special gift from God to them--and to them only.  Holy Spirit, open their eyes to see that LIFE is a unique gift and should be celebrated, not discarded.  We ended with the Pledge and gave hugs....then scurried to our cars to warm up.  Dress warm--the night chill has a bite.  Thank You God for Your beautiful gift of prayer warriors.  (Maribeth)

October 23, 2013 -- DAY TWENTY-NINE - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE



St. Martin de Porres Adopt A Day

Thank you for coming out to STAND UP FOR LIFE!




6:00 p.m. Vigil -- with the Youth of Bethesda Romanian Pentecostal Church of Troy

We started out as two.....and turned into 22+!  
Thank You Jesus for this amazing night of prayer with the youth.  Their from-the-heart-hand-made signs were to the point and brought many positive honks, thumbs up, and smiles....so much encouragement.  It was such a blessing to be out there with our next generation of PRO-LIFERS!    (Maribeth)

What a great group of young pro-lifers!!! As you & I were walking back & forth along the grassy prayer area saying the Holy Rosary, it was just beautiful hearing the different groups of young ones praying from their heart for the end of this evil in our world AND also their singing!!! Their youth leader said such a powerful closing prayer from his heart & it was so great to hear all of them immediately join us as we announced "The Pledge of Allegiance." God was truly pleased with our efforts this evening, I'm sure!!! We were so blessed to have such a joyful group out there peacefully speaking up for LIFE!!! (Jenny)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


6:00 p.m. Vigil



As I was getting my pro-life signs out of my car ~ a positive already ~ a man walking on the sidewalk saw the "Pray To End Abortion" & gave me a great big smile ~ excellent!!! I walked over to our prayer area on the grass & faced WomanCare abortion mill & Maribeth arrived ~ yeah!!! Before we began praying, another gentleman walked by and gave us a thumbs up!  We stood underneath our umbrellas, enduring the light rain and wind, and blest ourselves with holy water & I sprinkled a bit on the ground.  Maribeth offered up our intentions for the prayer hour & we said The Prayer for the Helpless Unborn & the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel for PW's all over the world who, like we two, were standing in front of abortion mills praying for the end of this evil in our world as 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigils are taking place in so very many countries.  Maribeth then she gave a brief Joyful Mystery meditation before each decade & we took turns leading the Holy Rosary. We then sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the conversion of all abortionists & closed with the Pledge of Allegiance. All positives this evening & the greatest positive of all was the killing mill was closed, so no hurting moms & no precious baby pieces thrown out into that red bucket. Thank you, Jesus!!!  (Jenny)





October 20, 2013 -- DAY TWENTY-SIX - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE



I faced WomanCare abortion mill, blest myself with holy water & sprinkled a bit on the ground around me & with my pro-life signs toward traffic began my opening prayers & heard a happy honk right away & a young man walked by & smiled & said hello. All positives this evening & what a calm, peaceful, prayerful evening it was for me. I offered my prayer hour for all involved in abortion any way as I said/sang the Holy Rosary reading a brief Joyful Mystery meditation before each Hail Mary. For the conversion of all abortion doctors, I sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I closed the hour facing that beautiful American flag & said Pledge of Allegiance. I was bundled up with two layers, gloves, cap, scarf, so it was not bad at all. I guess it's really going to get cold... long underwear time for us PW's!!  (Jenny)

October 19, 2013 -- DAY TWENTY-FIVE - FALL 2013 40 DAYS FOR LIFE




I arrived at WomanCare abortion mill & Julie & Clare were there for the last hour of the St. Therese of Lisieux Church Adopt-A-Day ~noon to 6pm.  We shared holy water & talked for a minute & a drive-by screamer yelled the F word at us a few times. Always good to say a little prayer for these misguided folks immediately & hopefully their hardened hearts will be converted to God's truth & light about the evil of killing babies in the womb. All we can do is lift them up in prayer to Him.  Clare was frozen so went to her car. Julie & I said the Prayer for the Helpless Unborn to close their Prayer Vigil & begin my 6pm prayer vigil. Good-bye hugs & she also went to her car to warm up. God bless all those who were able to pray today!!!

I faced WomanCare abortion mill with my pro-life signs toward traffic & offered my hour for all involved in abortion in any way. A man walked by & said "God bless you" & I said you also.  A man stopped his car to say "how many abortions have you had?!?" I said "none".  He said "I doubt that" & drove off laughing. I have no idea what was on his mind so I just prayed for him but I do know that post-abortive women are the best ones to be out in prayer at these killing mills because they totally understand what killing your own baby truly means & how it messes up your life for years & years & also how our Lord forgives you if you humble yourself & ask for His mercy. The weekends that post-abortive women & men attend really do heal them.  The rest of the evening was all positives ~ happy honks, thumbs up, smiles, waves. I finished the Holy Rosary reading a brief Glorious Mystery before singing each Hail Mary, then for the conversion of abortion doctors, I sang the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The killing mill was closed again tonight so no hurting women up there tonight & no tiny ones being tossed away. Thank you, Jesus.  

I faced the beautiful American flag & said the Pledge of Allegiance to close out my prayer hour. My fingers were really cold even with gloves on & I had two scarfs on & two layers of clothes so it was not too bad. Anyways, it is only one hour & you can walk back & forth if you are really cold to warm up a bit. What a beautiful sky God sent us as daylight started to fade. I picked up my quart of Wong Tong soup which was soooo good when I got home, helped warm me up. (Jenny)
