Day 40: Thanks to Divine Mercy Parish and to all who made this campaign so successful…the amazing 40 DFL Pgh team, all the groups and individuals who prayed on the sidewalk, all the religious communities and individuals who prayed from afar, and ABOVE ALL, God!!!

Praise God for bringing our 40 Days for Life campaign to a successful end!  Because of your willingness to let the Holy Spirit work through you, at least four women that we encountered are now open to choosing life for their unborn children. Please pray that they will stay strong and receive all the help they need. 

The necessity of prayer and outreach at PP is ongoing, so a dedicated team of 40 Days for Life 365 prayer warriors and Sidewalk Advocates will be continuing their selfless service on the sidewalk. You can play a role in this vital mission! Volunteering even one hour a month can make a difference.

The year-round vigil takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between the hours of 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM. To receive weekly updates and see when your assistance is most needed, please email pghsaland365@gmail.com. Thanks again for all you’ve done, and God bless each of you!

Stories from the Sidewalk

The EQT 10 Miler was today on Liberty Avenue.  By God’s grace we were able to be seen by a few thousand runners in our prayerful witness. The signs and prayers had to make an impression, judging by the comments that were shouted both by those running and some spectators walking past us. The swearing, “get a job”, “go home” comments were screamed but an equal number of “God bless you,” “go pro life,” etc. were also heard. We were able to talk at length to two street people and about their stand on life. The conversation ended on our knees in prayer.  Parking was a challenge but Marie, Vince, Rich, and George were present when Pat and I arrived. I did take a photo but it didn’t save and I am certain it was the photographer.

Some hustle and bustle on the streets today with the race and event at the Convention Center.  Laura was covered with a blanket today and was thrilled when a friend came and brought her phone that she had found. Laura was thanking Jesus. Glenn & I prayed quietly and talked to a couple passersby. As you can see, even the birds joined us today. One person said I should be ashamed of myself. I just said “God bless you.”  Looking forward to and believing in the day when death will be no more at 933 Liberty Avenue and the doors of PP are shut permanently. God can do what man cannot.

Thanks to Mary and the V. family for coming to witness with us today! It was wonderful to share the 1-3 shift with Jim and Cathy this campaign, and also my with my sister Ann who came down with me every Sunday. I pray this will be the last 40 Days campaign we will need to have. With God all things are possible.
