Story #29: “Thanks, I needed that today.”

Submitted by Sidewalk Advocates for Life – Tampa (South), FL

I saw a young couple drive by. They were reading the signs around me. They went into the Planned Parenthood then came out shortly afterwards and seemed to be arguing. I began to pray for them. I waited until I could make eye contact with the girl who was about 50 yards away from me. I waved my brochure at her and she came quickly walking towards me. I asked if she was okay. She obviously wasn’t. She was crying and very emotional. I asked if I could pray with her and she said, “Yes.” Then I gave her a brochure and told her where the pregnancy center was. I told her that they would have tons of support for her and that she shouldn’t listen to anybody that was telling her to do something that in her heart she knew was wrong. We hugged several times and she tearfully said, “Thank you,” and walked over to the man. They got in the car and left. She had given me her name and phone number. I texted her that I was praying for her and that I knew she could do it. She texted back, “Thanks, I needed that today.”
