40 Days of Prayer

Vigil1A few weeks ago, I wrote about Planned Parenthood’s plans to build an abortion clinic under the radar in Aurora, Illinois. It’s scheduled to open September 18. Last week, we launched an around-the-clock 40-Day Vigil at the site to pray that doesn’t happen. The response to the Vigil — now in Day 7 — has been overwhelming, with literally hundreds of people having already committed to come to the site and spend some time in prayer. As Eric said in an article on the Pro-Life Action League site, “This is the most powerful grassroots pro-life effort I’ve ever seen. We can scarcely keep track of the prayer pledges coming in. The people of Aurora and their neighbors in nearby towns do not want an abortion clinic here. Period.Vigil 2Even so, we still need many more prayer volunteers to fill time slots at the site. If you live nearby and you’re interested in taking part, you can get more information and sign up at the new Families Against Planned Parenthood website. We’re also holding a community meeting tomorrow night, Thursday, August 16, at 7:00pm at the Prisco Community Center in Aurora (see map here). We’ll also be sponsoring a protest at the site of the “Abortion Fortress” on Saturday, August 25, from 9:00 — 11:00am. Come if you can!
