One of the ladies in our Tuesday prayer group shared this story/prayer request: about a girl who lives in another state:
Last Friday a 15 year old girl went to an abortion clinic to abort her baby. She did not want to go through with the procedure, but she lives in an overly crowded house with relatives who cannot affort the money or space for a baby. They wanted her to make a choice: the baby or your home with us. So the teen did go to her appointment at the clinic. She tried to follow through. But she ended up running out of the place without having an abortion!!!
I was and am deeply moved at this amazing show of courage. This girl is in such a difficult situation and faces losing her home...yet she bravely chose life for her unborn baby!! All of us ladies found ourselves weeping as we spent several minutes in prayer for these two precious lives.
The director of the local crisis pregnancy center opened her home to the teen for a few days until they could figure out what to do. She (the director) has asked us to pray for God to intervene in this situation. The young lady has been in much physical discomfort and had an ultrasound which showed the baby has a very weak heartbeat. Please pray for her heath and the baby's. But on the positive side, the relatives are now possibly reconsidering their initial untimateum. It looks like may be able to stay with them during the pregnancy. There are still many unknowns, however, and anything could change.
I will be seeking updates about this young lady and will let you know how things go. Just please, please pray for her and for God's best plan.
