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.

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. 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!

Carnae came to the center seeking an abortion. She is a mother of four children and feels that having another child would risk her health, due to the fact that all her children were c-sections.

Carnae is scheduled for an ultrasound, please pray the image on the screen will fill her with the strength and courage needed to continue with this pregnancy.

Please pray that she returns for the appointment and is receptive to this precious new life.

Sierra came in today seeking an abortion with her husband. She already has multiple children who were all “planned” and she does not feel she can handle the added pressure of another child. Our counselors discussed the ways an abortion might harm Sierra and how we could provide support for her family. Let us pray that the information Sierra received today will influence her heart and allow Christ to fill her with the compassion needed for her to choose life!

When Theodora first came to our center she was feeling too old, too tired, and too busy to take on an infant at this time. Seeing her baby on the screen and hearing the heartbeat, Theodora was moved to tears, realizing that abortion is killing. Today Theodora informed our counselor that despite this realization, she still intended to move forward with an abortion procedure. Let us storm Heaven with prayers for this woman and her child that she might be spared from the horror of this decision and make a choice for life.

Brenda’s current financial situation and the emotional pressure of having two young children is pressuring her to terminate her pregnancy. When she came in today for her ultrasound our counselor spoke to her about the many ways we would be able to support her if she chose to have her baby.

Let us pray that the Lord will touch her heart and allow Monique to realize His purpose for this child.

Today Nan came to our center seeking a pregnancy test.  Because of the support she has received from our center for her son, Nan came to us right away when she thought she could be pregnant. Fearful she would get kicked out if her family knew she was pregnant, Nan was very scared she would have to consider abortion. After talking to our counselor and being reassured she could always count on us, Nan has committed to her pregnancy and her new baby! We praise God for the courage Nan had to choose life for her unborn child!

We are so thankful for the Lord’s work in Taylor! She has chosen life for her baby! First coming to our center alone and afraid, facing an unplanned pregnancy at such a young age, Taylor returned for her ultrasound today with her family, excited and joyous. They were all overjoyed at the sight of their newest member on the ultrasound screen! Praise God for the joy which life brings!!

When Candi first came to us, it was with a heavy heart. She felt that the timing of this pregnancy was not at all what she would have wanted. However, the idea of giving her son who has disabilities a sibling was undeniable. Today when Candi returned for her ultrasound she decided to welcome this new life with confidence and joy! Praise Jesus for this woman’s courage! Candi is still nervous for her family’s reaction and we ask for your continued prayers that the Lord will soften their hearts toward this new baby as well!

Sabella chose life today! Thank you Jesus! As you may remember Sabella came in last week seeking an abortion. Facing the struggles of single parenting and raising a child with minor disabilities, Sabella was overwhelmed at the thought of yet another baby. Today Sabella returned for her ultrasound and was touched by the reality of her baby’s heartbeat so much that she could no longer contemplate ending the life within her. Praise the Lord and give Him thanks for this wonderful gift of life!

Our Lord is rich in kindness and mercy! Kenya has chosen life! Kenya came in feeling she must have another abortion because of her situation. She felt very conflicted because she has longed for a child,  but struggles in her relationship with the father. Seeing the ultrasound made it all real for Kenya and she left our center excited to welcome her new baby! We rejoice with our Lord for this gift and ask for continued guidance for Kenya.
