Pray for Anonymous Girl and Her Unborn Child in Pennsylvania

Date: January 19, 2011

Please storm heaven for this prayer request! Thank you.  Please pray for a 22 year old girl who is contemplating an abortion.  She is 20 weeks along (5 months) and has an appointment scheduled for Friday in Philadelphia.  She already has a 2 year old little girl that she is raising on her own.

I have tried to convince her that there are hundreds of caring people in this area who would be willing to help her and that things can and will get better for her.  I’m hoping to bring her to Mary’s Shelter/home in Reading tomorrow for a visit and hopefully an interview.  She is in great emotional pain.  Her parents were both in trouble with the law and as a result she has been in the foster care system since she was a child..  Unfortunately it failed her.  She has been abused both physically and sexually.  The relationship she is now is also an abusive one.  The cycle is hard to break I imagine.  Unfortunately her circumstances haven’t left her with the confidence to even place her child up for adoption.  We spoke about open adoption and the ability she would have to choose the parents of this child, interview them, and be a part of the baby’s life if she so chose the adoption option.

The good news is the last foster home she was in was a good experience and they saw that she finished her high school education and even began taking some college classes.

Please pray that she embraces Mary’s Shelter as well as the child growing in her womb.  Storm heaven.

Thank you.
