This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“God intended it for good to accomplish … the saving of many lives” (Genesis 50:20)

Reflection: One of the simplest ways to stop abortions is to go to the facilities where the abortions happen and talk to the women who are walking in. This is called “sidewalk counseling.” It is legal in every state, and has saved countless lives. Training is available from pro-life organizations.

Prayer: Lord, I Pray today for all sidewalk counselors who are pleading for the lives of the unborn. Gibe them grace and wisdom, patience and perseverance. Save many lives and souls through their loving intervention, and call many others to join their ranks. Amen.

They often only have seconds in which to make the case that the child’s life should be spared. They often face hostility and disappointment because of hardened hearts. They need your prayers and encouragement, and if possible, your presence.
