Join us on Good Friday as we remember the unborn victims of abortion while meditating on the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Pastors of various denominations lead us in Scripture and prayer. There is no protesting or signs, just solemn prayer for seven and a half hours.
In 2015, approximately 2,700 attended Pro-Life Action Ministries’ Annual Good Friday Prayer Vigil at the mega-Planned Parenthood in St. Paul, MN. Fifteen area pastors of various denominations led the reading of Scriptures and prayers, one each half hour, throughout the day. The only sign prevalent at the prayer vigil was a life-size cross. Following the passion and death of Jesus Christ and remembering the 4,000 babies killed each year at this abortion chamber, attendees kept a solemn presence for seven and a half hours.
Adding to the atmosphere were Planned Parenthood (PP) supporters whose carnival-like mocking event coincided with the solemn vigil nearby. Representatives of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights attempted to lead the PP supporters in “prayer.” Those attending the Good Friday Prayer Vigil were able to further identify with the passion and death of Christ because of the abortion supporters’ presence.
“I appreciated the opportunity to meditate on Our Lord’s Passion in the context of abortion and to unite in prayer with others whom I’ve never even met for our little brothers and sisters.”
“I am grateful for the opportunity to pray with so many other people to end abortion at PP. It is good to give public witness to our faith.”
“Prayerful, respectful presence. Many of the women and men who resort to abortion are wounded and our gentle example of Christ’s love is so powerful.”
“I feel closely united with Christ on Good Friday when I stand with Him against the evil atrocities that are taking place at Planned Parenthood. It’s a profound feeling to be united with so many other Christians on this solemn day.”
