Prayer Request for Lola
Lola is very emotional about her pregnancy because she is feeling pressured by her family to have an abortion. She had an abortion in the past that was very traumatic and she is still struggling with regret and depression. Before coming into the center, Lola felt that she had no support to keep her baby. After speaking with a staff member, Lola felt more confident in her role as a mother and left feeling like she was n o longer alone. Please pray that Lola would continue to feel empowered and supported so that she would fully commit to life for her baby!
Prayer Request for Miriam
Miriam is seeking an abortion because she feels stressed as a single mother and feels like she would not have much support if she were to have another child. She believes that abortion is killing, but her boyfriend does not live nearby so she does not want to raise another child without the father being involved. After talking to a counselor about our ongoing support, Miriam started to consider the possibility of parenting. Please pray that when Miriam returns for her ultrasound she chooses life and love for her unborn baby!
Prayer Request for Zully
Zully is determined to get an abortion because she has always pictured herself having a child with someone that she sees a future with. This is her first time being pregnant, but she felt too sick to go over the information with a counselor. Please pray that Zully returns to the center for an ultrasound and to discuss her options with a counselor!
Prayer Request for Jasey
Jasey had planned to parent when she first found out that she was pregnant, but changed her mind because she is young and worried that she will have to drop out of school to raise a child. She has not talked to her family about being pregnant and feels alone in making this decision. Please pray that Jasey has the courage to talk to her family and her heart is opened to parenting her child!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. -Philippians 4:6

Praise Report for Whitney!
Whitney chose life! You may recall that Whitney is a young girl who was originally planning to keep her baby but changed her mind when the father of the baby told her to get an abortion. She was very emotional when she first came in. Last week, Whitney came in with her boyfriend to talk. Her boyfriend was very manipulative and continued to pressure Whitney to get the abortion. With the help of her counselor, Whitney was able to stand up to her boyfriend and tell him that she is keeping her baby with or without him! Whitney and her counselor worked on a plan to help her feel confident and stable in her decision. Today, her counselor checked in with Whitney and she expressed thankfulness to the Women’s Center for supporting her and her decision! We thank God for this miracle of life!
Prayer Request for Emily
Please pray for Emily! Emily is considering abortion because she feels that she does not have a stable place to live, or stable finances to raise a new baby. Emily had a past abortion that left her feeling depressed, so she is very hesitant about doing it again but she also feels that she doesn’t have support to continue her pregnancy. Emily was very happy to hear about our ongoing support program, and to talk to a counselor. She decided to give herself more time to make her decision. Please pray that Emily would be filled with confidence and love when she returns for her ultrasound!
Prayer Request for Abriana
Abriana needs your prayers! She was very anxious when she first found out that she is pregnant because she does not feel ready for a child. She disclosed to a counselor that she has been struggling emotionally and financially for a while. Because of these things, Abriana has been very determined to get an abortion since discovering that she is pregnant.Abriana returned for an ultrasound and was very distraught after hearing her baby’s heartbeat, but she still plans to get an abortion. Please pray that Abriana is filled with peace and she chooses life for her precious baby!
Prayer Request for Yogi
Yogi needs your prayers! Yogi is seeking an abortion because she feels like most of the financial responsibilities of a child would fall on her rather than the father of the baby. She said that right now she does not feel emotionally ready for those responsibilities. She said that she wanted to be excited when she found out she was pregnant, but feels like abortion is the best choice at this time. Yogi does not want to return for an ultrasound at our center and just wants to find somewhere she can go for an abortion. Please pray that Yogi’s heart is changed and she chooses life and love for her beautiful baby!
Prayer Request for Aaliyah
Please pray for Aaliyah! Aaliyah was shocked to find out that she is pregnant and is unsure what she wants to do. Even though she had wanted a child in the past, Aaliyah does not feel like she is in a good financial position to have a child. She is also concerned about medical complications that she has and whether or not it would be safe to carry a baby to term. Please pray that Aaliyah returns for her ultrasound and is filled with love for her precious child!
Prayer Request for Meghan
Meghan is pregnant for the first time and wants to get an abortion because she and her boyfriend want to be married before having children. Meghan believes an abortion will make her happy. Meghan’s boyfriend was very controlling and appears to be pushing the abortion. Please pray that Meghan will find the strength to make this decision for herself, and that she would be filled with love for her baby!
Prayer Request for Soren
Please pray for Soren! Soren came to the center seeking an abortion because she does not feel stable enough for another child. Although her boyfriend wants to parent, she does not feel like that would be enough support to raise a baby. She has been very stressed because she needs to find a new job and her own place to live. Seeing her baby on the ultrasound made her rethink whether or not she would be able to go through with an abortion. A counselor talked to her about our center’s ongoing support and she decided that she wants to take more time to think about her decision. Please pray that Soren has the courage to say “yes” to life!
Prayer Request for Nani
Please continue to pray for Nani! If you remember, Nani had planned to get an abortion because she does not feel financially or emotionally ready for a child. She was very emotional after hearing the abortion information, but did not want to talk much with a counselor. She returned for an ultrasound and was smiling after seeing her baby and happy to hear the baby’s heartbeat. She told a counselor that she is mainly concerned that her boyfriend and family will not be as supportive as they say they will be if she has the baby, so a counselor discussed with Nani our center’s ongoing support. Nani felt comforted after learning more about our support and plans to return to the center again. Please pray that the Holy Spirit continues to change Nani’s heart!
Prayer Request for June
Please continue to pray for June! If you remember June has been to our center for a pregnancy test and ultrasound. She has thoughts of getting an abortion because of the way that she became pregnant and because she does not feel like it is the “right time” for another child. She returned to the center today and a counselor listened to the many concerns that she has about being pregnant. She is still feeling very conflicted because she has strong beliefs against abortion but does not feel like it would be fair to this baby or her other children if she can not provide for them all. Please pray that the Holy Spirit consoles June and she feels freed from her fears to choose life for her unborn baby!

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!!!
