Thank you to the prayer warriors today who participated from the following groups: St. Ferdinand R.L.; St. Mary of the Assumption; Redeemer Orthodox Presbyterian (RPTS)! The groups scheduled for tomorrow are: Holy Family; Guardians for Life; St. Sebastian (Ross Twp.); and we are looking for people to fill the 3-7PM shift!
As you read through these reports and you look at the people in the pictures, please pray. Pray for the passersby and for the people who confront us and are directly opposed to the witness of Christ for Life. Pray that our people will be faithful witnesses and will speak the words that God gives them to change hearts and save lives!
Light rain ended on my way into town. The wind really picked up. It
flipped our signs around most of the morning. It seemed that there
were many more bus people on the street than is usual for a late
morning. Most of them ignored us, as is usual. PP seemed to be having
a very slow morning.
Three ladies from St. Ferdinand were there when I arrived, and I
prayed the rosary with them.
Meaghan came from St. John & Paul Church with two large packs of very
nice small cards, each pack different, about abortion and the sanctity
of life. One set of the cards had an 800 # for help with a problem
pregnancy. The satirist walked down Liberty, as he usually does in the
morning, took a card from Meaghan, and then proceeded to tear it into
pieces & throw it around the circle.
About 10 a.m. four members of the Three Rivers AOG Church arrived, and
shortly after that two of the regular Friday sidewalk advocates. A few
people from other churches filled out the morning, so we had a really
good group. Literally nothing out of the ordinary happened.
Meaghan from the AM shift writes:
Definitely a God thing! He is so good, and He puts us in the right place at the right time!
Pat, I would like to encourage you and remind you that as we pray, the Spirit speaks through us. I’m sure that God used you and Eileen to minister to this woman who is so obviously hurting!
Continue to pray for our shift managers, that they might have the courage of Christ and that they might be full of all wisdom to deal with all the confrontation that we see!
