The following are events taking place during the 40 Days for Life Spring Campaign in West Chester, PA. Those living in or around this area are encouraged to attend these events. For more information, please contact Paulette Matthews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This campaign starts with very good news. It was reported that one baby was saved during our last campaign which brings the total of the babies saved in West Chester since 2007 to 37 saves, that we now know of. It would be a spiritual boost to all of us that if you know of a baby saved during a campaign, you would share that blessing with me so I can pass it on to all of us. I have no other way of knowing.
We have been praying for the end of abortion for over 40 years. We have watched laws give more protection to the unborn since the 1973 Supreme Court made abortion legal in all 50 states. We have worked at creating more crisis pregnancy centers than there are abortion facilities to provide help and hope to mothers. God, always, hears our prayer and is always faithful.
In Psalm 94:4 (NIV) "They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting." Who ever would have thought to pray that in the boastfulness of Planned Parenthood, they would, themselves, expose their own evil deeds. God has worked though David Daleiden with the videos that he has present and Lily Rose has just release another video talking with Leroy Carhart, the late term abortionist in Germantown, Md. The website liveaction.org/inhuman/ exposes more of the evils of abortion. Through all of us, God is bring forth the truth and we must continue to spread his love and light.
Our candlelight pray hour will be held in the spirit of thankfulness that God has given us the insight and courage to unconditionally defend life and that God is sharing with us a glimpse of His unconditional love that He has for all of us. God has rewarded us in ways we never would have imagined.
Matt 17:20 "Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Later the same day at 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM an ecumenical prayer service will be lead by Thomas Ackerman. Tom embraces the Messianic Jewish faith. We are hoping to reach out to the PP workers as they leave for the day at 2 PM with information from Abby Johnson's "And Then There Were None" ministry.
Hopefully, this will give the worker a chance to reconsider their life choices and have the help they need to leave the abortion industry.
Through the Knight of Columbus, Fr. McGivney gave laymen a new opportunity-the chance to grow in holiness while contributing to their parishes, communities and security of their families. All men are invited to stand in solidarity witnessing for the sanctity of human life and showing that men do take on the responsibly of fatherhood as men are the authors of life so designed by God.
Sign up for an hour on the 40daysforlife.com/chestercounty vigil calendar, if possible sign up for an hour or so after 12 noon til 8 PM. Tuesday morning is the day that the children loose their lives to abortion. From 8 AM to 12 noon many people are already there offering help and hope to the women going in for their abortions. The 12 PM til 8 PM hours are open.
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. Jesus traveled to Jerusalem knowing that His journey would end in His sacrificial death on the cross for the sins of all mankind.
This is 40 Days for Life in West Chester greatest outreach prayer service to the local community to draw attention that children are being sacrificed right in their neighborhood. It is also a reminder that Christ died for them too no matter how busy they are or how irrelevant Christ seems to them. The Holy Spirit can turn a quick glance into a life time of change.
