Once a week, on Friday mornings, the center director would call Donis with a listing of prayer needs (names changed to protect anonymity). Donis would then pass on those needs and by the end of the morning each client need was covered in prayer. Only God knows how many women chose life because of the effectual fervent prayers of a band of godly women.

Rosemary has gone on to receive her reward but, while on earth, she showed love and compassion for babies by making over 5,000 pairs of booties to give to clients of crisis pregnancy centers. We won't know this side of heaven how many women chose life because of Rosemary--a total stranger who showed love for the babies they might have aborted.
At 91 years of age, Helen lives in a retirement center and maintains an active life. When she's not walking or participating in her daily exercise class, she's at her sewing machine crafting hundreds of baby blankets from material donated by women in her church. When she tires of that, she crochets beautiful baby blankets--all to give to clients of crisis pregnancy centers.
When a woman is in a state of indecision about her pregnancy, a lovely handmade item crafted just for her and her baby, can sometimes help her to see hope beyond her fears.

Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.
- First, we are all created in our Father, the King's, image.
- Second, we represent the Creator who sanctifies human life and commands us not to kill.
- Third, in our various ways, we are all about our Father, the King's, business.
- Fourth, a house divided against itself cannot stand. Therefore, it is in our interest to join hands and work toward the goal of saving babies' lives and healing women's hearts--heal the broken-hearted, set the captives free.

Some friends were discussing their various “calls” to ministry within the pro-life movement.
One felt led to picket abortion clinics. “We hold signs with pro-life messages, recite scripture, and sing Bible songs to women as they approach the clinic. Some picketers even offer to raise the babies these women don’t want.”
Another believed his calling is to post giant bulletin boards containing graphic pictures of aborted babies. “We go all over the country and stage the boards in public places. Someone’s got to shock Americans to their senses!”
Still another tries to bring about societal change via the courts and legislation. “If we can influence people through voters’ guides and other politically-focused publications, we’ll see a change in their attitudes and voting patterns.”
Yet another felt called to serve in pregnancy resource centers (PRC). “We offer abortion-vulnerable women free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and other services in a confidential and non-judgmental environment.”
The focus of the first group is to save the lives of babies in what may be the last opportunity to do so before the abortion. The focus of the second group is save the lives of babies by showing the ugliness of abortion and thereby turning the tide of public opinion against it. The third group focuses on saving the lives of babies by bringing about change through the political process with the ultimate goal of overturning Roe v. Wade. The fourth group’s focus is on saving the lives of babies by mercifully ministering to the perceived needs of their mothers.
Four different methods—four different points of view—four different sets of supporters and detractors—one goal: to save lives!
Because of strong emotional involvement, there will always be tension and the potential for misunderstanding among the four groups. All care very much about the issue and are convinced they are doing God’s work in His way.
All four groups keep the sanctity of human life issue alive in a culture that is increasingly prone to choose death at all stages of life (for the preborn, the elderly, and those with disabilities). And, for that reason, all four groups are needed.
Whether God has led you to serve in the mercy, political, or rescue realm, the point is He is our Chief and He is working all things together for good. May we join forces and circle our wagons in defense of women and their babies.
To God be the glory!
