The Unseen Power of Prayer at Rockford's Abortion Mill

“More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” Alfred Lord Tennyson


Rockford May 16, 2010 - Many of you have recently read of the tragic story of the mother inside of Rockford's abortion mill who had her best friend and the father of her child desperately trying to get word to her that they loved her and would help her with her baby. You also read how effective the abortion mill was in keeping any knowledge of their presence from the young mother so she thought she was alone and friendless.

As followers of Jesus Christ we know God is in control but we realize we don't always see or understand what is happening in the world or in people’s hearts. The woman who was desperately trying to save the life of her friend’s child told pro-lifers a story of how the life of her own child was saved from abortion. We believe this child’s life was saved through the power of the prayers of people like you, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the openness to God and life of this woman’s heart.

On the sidewalk in front of Rockford's abortion mill this young mother explained to the sidewalk counselors how she was pregnant a few years before by her now ex-boyfriend. She was scared, confused, felt alone and was considering an abortion.

She had the phone number of the abortion mill in her hand and was ready to call.

But she couldn't do it, something prevented her from calling. Something inside of her, an unseen grace, moved her heart to life and love.

Was this one of the saves we never hear about? The prayers of the people of God are working! How many other girls have had the mill phone number in hand and couldn’t bring themselves to call, couldn’t bring themselves to show up to their appointment, because God’s people were praying and interceding on their behalf and the behalf of their unborn child?!

This was a terrible day for the unborn at Rockford's abortion mill with 16 lives lost. Although this young woman and her brother weren’t able to help his child, 2 years ago God was able to use our prayers to save her baby, a beautiful little boy.

She also seemed to have some sort of God-given epiphany right on the sidewalk about abortion in general. As she was talking with us she said, “You know, my mom and I used to say that it was none of our business what another woman wants to do with her body, that’s her decision and all that, but I’m not so sure anymore.” This young woman saw how her brother was powerless to help his ex-girlfriend regarding his unborn child, and that struck a chord with her. God opened some blind eyes today at the Northern Illinois Women’s Center. All glory and honor to the Great I AM!!!!
Dear friends, please keep praying! You are doing more good than you will ever know in this lifetime.
