Saturday Morning Prayers at Planned Parenthood
I've known about the weekly prayers there for a long time, yet for some reason I never went. Instead, I've prayed outside the Planned Parenthood in the city where we hold our 40 Days campaigns.
Determined to give it a shot, I went to morning Mass, stopped home, and then headed for the Planned Parenthood.
Including myself, nine people showed up to pray - a good number on a chilly February morning (28 degrees). We said a Rosary, a Divine Mercy Chaplet, some prayers for the intentions of the pope, and a few other prayers.
As we prayed, a few people went into the clinic, including a young black couple. The young woman looked uncertain. I said extra prayers for them.
The other people praying were obviously regulars. I admire their commitment. I hope to go there more regularly.
Prayer is a powerful weapon against the Culture of Death and the Lord of Lies.
