Then Jesus said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out and it was completely restored.
“Just stretch out your hand.” It’s time to listen to our Lord. Have faith. Believe. Take action. Let’s stretch out our withered hands and He will heal us. All of us. Miracles will happen.
How? We stretch out our hand when we go to pray at the abortion center. When we smile at passerby’s. When we hold our signs. We are showing we believe that nothing is impossible with God. He can stop the abortions from happening downtown. He can flood hearts with grace and break the hard hearts. He can end abortion in our land and the world. We just have to believe, do our part and He’ll do the rest.
Just stretch out your hands. Tim B.
Here are the recaps from today at the vigil:
From Sue 7-9 am: Amy and I were joined by first timer to 40 DFL, Johnny. He has a legacy of being pro-life from his grandfather and decided to get involved! It was wonderful to say the rosary with the visual of Nikki’s beautiful images of the Blessed Mother on the sidewalk! We handed out many cards and engaged as many people as we could. There was a man who stopped that said he knows someone who is 2-3 months pregnant, has substance abuse issues and is considering abortion. We assured him that help is available and gave him brochures and all the information with free resources. He thought her pregnancy might be the inspiration and strength to help her get clean and abortion would only make things worse. I told him that I would ask all of you to pray for her! Please keep K in your prayers!
From Donna 11-1: It was a beautiful warm day on the sidewalk. Janet, Connie, Pat & Nick from St Peter & Paul in Beaver joined in prayer today. Pat & Nick blessed us with Our Lady of Guadalupe chaplets and rosaries. Please share them with others. Thank you so much! Pat & Nick are pictured in the previous shift manager report. Sheila and Mary Ann joined in prayer and handed out resources also. Thanks be to God for these faithful prayer warriors! Our positive comments, thumbs up and blown horns outweighed the negative comments. Thank you all for your faithfulness!
From Ginny 3-5:
Marlin stopped to talk to us about the darkness in the world Pete gave him some pro-life information.
He was concerned about the baby lives mattering.
Another man stopped by to ask about when a woman is raped I explained to him that the child is innocent and it should be the father that was the rapist that should be punished and he said what about the woman being traumatized and I said it’s more of a trauma to have a baby aborted. Women who kept their babies or gave them up for adoption after a rape felt much more peace and he started to see it that way. praise God
