"It is said that as many days as there are in the whole journey, so many are the men and horses that stand along the road, each horse and man at the interval of a day’s journey; and these are stayed neither by snow nor rain nor heat nor darkness from accomplishing their appointed course with all speed."
—Herodotus, Histories (8.98) (trans. A.D. Godley, 1924)
You can add to this list of those who refuse to be kept from accomplishing their appointed course, the DBQ 40 Days for Life prayer vigil participants.
An e-mail was sent out by the vigil coordinator, Trina Hingtgen, about what happenned this morning during the thunderstom that passed through DBQ. Here is a part of it:
Just wanted to share some good news:
Rain does not bother me but when the lightening started this morning I decided that we would put our prayers in front of the PP on hold and wait until the weather improved to gather in front of the clinic again. I drove over to the clinic to tell everyone to pack up until the lightening stopped but the prayer warriors instead said to me, “I can’t think of a better place to be if God wants to take me!!” Praise God! They had umbrellas, but they were soaked and despite that, they had great big smiles on their faces– that kind of love only comes from having God in your life. Thank you! As if that wasn’t enough, a short time later one of those soaking wet prayer warriors stopped by the office to drop off a donation –some of the proceeds from her garage sale this weekend! Pro-lifers truly are the best!!"
I don't know all the ways that God will honor their efforts this morning. I do know that He is working powerfully. I am sure that God will honor their willingness to brave the lightening, as well as that of those of us who have braved the biting wind cold, chilling rain & darkness over the past several weeks so that it will bear much fruit & bring many victories in the spiritial battle that is going on at the DBQ Planned Parenthood.
