I am feeling victorious this week. As the 40 Days for Life (https://40daysforlife.com/) Fall 2016 Campaign ended on November 6th I reflected on the difference this peaceful, prayerful vigil made in our world. Record numbers of people came out to the sidewalk to pray in 367 cities in all 50 states of the U.S. and 23 countries. We know of 717 lives that were saved in the course of the 40 days, and there is no telling how many hearts were changed. Two days later our country elected a vocal advocate for life instead of a politician bent on expanding abortion in our wounded world. While it’s true that our battle for life is not over, we can certainly celebrate this step in the right direction. Will we succeed in putting an end to abortion in our lifetime? I don’t know, but it looks better today than it did a few weeks ago. In the meantime, I’ll keep heading out to the sidewalk to pray. I hope you’ll join me.
