Praise Report & Prayer Requests Philadelphia & Bucks County October 26, 2016

Praise Report for Ajura!
Ajura chose life for her baby! If you remember, Ajura is a mom of multiple children, although she does not believe in abortion, Ajura shared that she would be forced to leave her home if she continues her pregnancy and that she has no support to parent another child. When Ajura returned for her ultrasound she committed to continuing her pregnancy and parenting her baby! She plans to work with our center to find somewhere safe to live. Thank you for your prayers! Ajura is excited to be a mother of another child!
Praise Report for Emmy!
Thank the Lord! Emmy chose life! As you may remember, Emmy did not want to have a baby and did not feel any emotions about having an abortion. She was slightly interested in our help but was very abortion minded. Today at her ultrasound, Emmy was happy to share that she is now keeping her baby and can’t wait to tell her family! Thank you God for changing her heart and saving Emmy and her baby from abortion!
Prayer Request for Edie
Please pray for Edie! Edie wants to get an abortion because having a baby right now was not in her plans. She was disturbed by the abortion procedures, but said she will just not think about it too much. Her partner wants the baby, but she believes this is more her choice than his. Edie was very upset when we could not refer her an abortion, and she was not open to our ongoing support or ultrasound. Please pray that Edie’s heart would change towards her baby, and that she would reconsider her decision!
Prayer Request for Nikole
Nikole needs your prayers! Nikole is a young girl who is torn between parenting and having an abortion. She would like to parent, but feels that she needs support from her mom and boyfriend. She plans to return for an ultrasound with both of them. Please pray that when Nikole returns for an ultrasound she is moved by the sight of her unborn baby and chooses life!
Prayer Request for Jalia
As you may remember Jalia came to our center seeking an abortion. She has already had many abortions and feels abortion is wrong but also feels she has no choice. She was not open to our help but returned to our center today for an ultrasound. She is still very abortion determined and did not want to talk. Please pray that our Lord Jesus will save Jalia and her baby from abortion!
Prayer Request for Shasta
Shasta needs your prayers! If you remember Shasta is a returning client who is considering abortion because she does not know if she can handle parenting another child. Shasta was not comfortable with the abortion procedures and said that she needs to have a long discussion with her boyfriend. She and her boyfriend came for an ultround tody, and they are still unsure of their plans after seeing their baby. They are planning to retun for a second ultrasound. Please pray that when the couple returns together they see how beautiful their baby is and choose life!
Prayer Request for Kimmie
Please pray for Kimmie! If you remember Kimmie came to our center seeking an abortion because she has a few children already. She has had some abortions in the past and feels guilty about those, but feels this is the best decision for her. When Kimmie returned for her ultrasound today she stated that she still wants to get an abortion, but seemed unsure. Please pray that the Lord shows her what a blessing her baby is, and that she would choose life!

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that he has done. -Psalm 105:4-5

When we met Julia we learned that she is a young mother facing an unplanned pregnancy – Prayer Requests 5/4

Maribel  came in today seeking an abortion. She recently immigrated from West Africa and she has little support in this country.  She does not feel able to continue her pregnancy without knowing that someone will stand beside her. She told our counselor that she feels unprepared to care for a child and does not want to continue her pregnancy. She is scheduled for an ultrasound; please pray that she will come back for her ultrasound and that she will be moved by the sight of her unborn child.

When we met Julia we learned that she is a young mother facing an unplanned pregnancy. Her health and financial situation have made her feel she has no choice but abortion. Today she returned for her ultrasound and although she was grateful we would be there to support her, she is still strongly considering abortion. We ask the Holy Spirit to pour out His influence and grace on this young mother.

Jordie is a young woman faced with an unplanned pregnancy. She is terrified of what a pregnancy might mean for her situation, especially if her parents were to find out, so she believes having an abortion is the only option she has. After seeing the ultrasound, she was moved to tears, but unwilling to speak with her parents about the situation. We pray that the Holy Family might intercede for Jordie to be able to tell her family and have them receive her and this new baby with open arms.

Although she was tearful during her ultrasound, she was still very adamant about having an abortion – Prayer Requests 5/1

Cecily came back today for her ultrasound. She was accompanied by her sister and one of her children. Although she was tearful during her ultrasound, she was still very adamant about having an abortion. She does not feel able to continue this pregnancy because it is a result of assault. Please pray that her heart will  be changed and that she comes to embrace this child.

Velina came to our center seeking an abortion. She is recently divorced and has three small children. Her ex-husband is the father of this baby and she does not want to continue because it will be a painful reminder of him.  Since we were not sure that Velina would be willing to return for another appointment,  we offered her an ultrasound today.  When she left she was still struggling to open her heart to her baby. Mother Mary please heal Velina from the trauma in her life and open her heart to the child that God has blessed her with.

Ellie came to our center quickly after finding out she was pregnant. In her state of crisis, Ellie has not fully processed her emotions; she only said she wanted the abortion and she wanted it fast. Convinced her financial situation and relationship will not accommodate another child, Ellie sees no option but abortion. Our counselor slowed Ellie down and walked her through all of the emotions associated with her pregnancy. She will be returning for an ultrasound next week. We pray that Ellie’s heart and mind will be opened to the Truth about the life inside of her.

Praise Report 4/27

While making follow up calls today we were joyful to discover that a past client Leca, had chosen life! As you may remember Leca came to our center last year seeking abortion information. She already had a small child and was greatly disappointed when the father of her previous pregnancy had not supported her. Now, faced again with an unplanned pregnancy, she could not trust that her new partner would keep his word and support her. Leca scheduled an ultrasound but did not come to her appointment. For months our staff tried reaching out to Leca but with no reciprocation. Today, in our final effort to reach out, we were happily surprised to discover that Leca now has a beautiful baby girl! Praise and thank the Lord Jesus who is good! 

We spoke to Anna Maria today to follow up with her and see how she was doing. She came to us about a month ago in search of an abortion because she could not handle the demands of motherhood once again. Anna Maria informed us that she had decided to keep her baby and felt that God had led her to this miraculous decision. Let us praise our Heavenly Father for this miracle!!!

Prayer Requests 4/27

Julia is a young mother of two children seeking an abortion. Julia knows her own mother would never want her to have another abortion, but she feels she has no other choice because of her health and financial situation. We assured Julia of our support through our mother’s program and scheduled an ultrasound for her next week. We pray that Our Lady will intercede for this young mother and help her to choose life for her unborn child!

Jessica came to our center feeling very confused. She had never believed in abortion, but when her boyfriend found out, he insisted that abortion would be the best option for their situation. Feeling completely alone and unsupported, Jessica is afraid to make the “wrong” decision. We assured her of our constant support for her and her baby, and scheduled an ultrasound for her and her boyfriend to attend next week. We ask the Holy Spirit to increase Jessica’s confidence and help her to stand up for the life of her baby!

Bernie came in today seeking an abortion. Bernie already has 2 children and this is the first time she is considering abortion. She is in her second trimester. Although this decision conflicts strongly with her moral and ethical stance as a believing Christian, she was casual while speaking about her abortion decision. She is scheduled to return to us for an ultrasound. Let us pray that the Lord Jesus will touch her heart and show her the reality of the child in her womb through her ultrasound.

Amanda came in today looking for a pregnancy test. She was a previous client who has turned to abortion in the past. Although Amanda plans to parent she is still facing many challenges that pressure her toward abortion once again. She is scheduled next week for an ultrasound.  Let us pray that the image of her child will touch her heart and that our Heavenly Mother Mary will protect Amanda from the tempting lies of The Great Deceiver.

Prayer Requests 4/23

Joan came in today seeking an abortion. She has recently started to recover from a substance abuse addiction. Joan is worried that a newborn will be too much to handle and feels the stress would get in the way of parenting her two children already as well as her recovery journey. Joan will be returning for an ultrasound next week. Please pray that Joan will see how beautiful new life is and make the best choice for herself and her children, especially her unborn child!

Raluta came to the center earlier this week seeking an abortion. She is married and currently a mother to one child. She was very overwhelmed at the thought of having another baby. Her fear is driving her towards abortion. She brought her husband with her and our counselor spoke to the couple about the harmful nature of abortion. She is scheduled to come back for an ultrasound. Please pray that she comes back for her ultrasound and that she embraces motherhood again with joy and enthusiasm. 

Dhalia called our center yesterday to inform our counselors that she miscarried late into her second trimester. Dhaila had an abortion early on in her life. A few years later, Dhalia was married and had children. This last pregnancy was a surprise to her and she wanted to end it. After meeting with our staff she joyfully chose life for her baby! Let us pray that God heals Dhalia’s wounds and that she opens her heart to God’s merciful hand.

Praise Report 4/22

We were in touch with Elwa who first came to us this fall looking for a way to end her pregnancy. She was concerned that the baby would interfere with her career and her upcoming wedding.  Though Elwa left our offices very distraught at learning how far along she was, our counselors continued to prayerfully encourage her to commit to her pregnancy.  Yesterday we learned that Elwa delivered a beautiful baby earlier this month. Let us praise God for this miracle!!

Nan came in earlier this week facing an unplanned pregnancy and chose life for her unborn baby. Prayer Requests 4/20

Nan came in earlier this week facing an unplanned pregnancy and chose life for her unborn baby. While Nan is so courageous, she is still really struggling with the pressures of her situation and is burdened with doubt. She continues to meet with our counselor and will have an ultrasound next week. Please pray particularly for Nan that Our Lord will lead her on the path He has for her.

Ashling is very overwhelmed and uncertain about her plans with her current pregnancy. Even though Ashling believes abortion “ends a life” she still is weighing her true feelings versus the stress of her current situation. Due to her rehabilitation, Ashling is not willing to consider parenting, but was open to learning more about adoption. She is returning for an ultrasound next week. Please pray that Christ’s generous heart will embrace Ashling and allow her to grow and give another family the beautiful present of a child!

Kimbra came in today seeking abortion information. When talking to the counselor Kimbra revealed that it was her parents who were forcing her to have the abortion and were even verbally abusing her. Kimbra became empowered when she heard about our advocacy program and learned of the many resources we could provide,  including housing.  Let us pray that Christ will bless her with the grace of hope and will banish all fear so that she may freely choose the path that is best for her and her child!

Lord, Your mercy is endless!! Lydia has chosen life for her unborn child! Praise Report 4/17

Lord, Your mercy is endless!! Lydia has chosen life for her unborn child! When we met Lydia, we learned that she was facing a pregnancy very shortly after already having a child. After an emotional reaction to her ultrasound Lydia was still unable to commit to her pregnancy out of fear. After months of trying to get in touch with Lydia we were finally able to get a hold of her and she was able to give us the glorious news that she had decided to continue with her pregnancy! We graciously thank God for answering our prayers for this woman and allowing her heart to be moved by The Spirit!
