Prayer in Protest of #PlannedParenthood

August 20, 2015

defundppThis Saturday, Aug. 22, from 9:00-11:00 am, people will be protesting Planned Parenthood in 43 states and 180 cities as part of a nationwide movement to seek federal defunding of the nation’s largest abortion provider. This comes in light of the recent undercover videos exposing the even darker atrocities of the organization.

For those who are interested or moved in our area, protests have been organized for the clinics in Boston and Worcester. But those in the Metrowest may not know that there is also clinic in downtown Marlborough (91 Main Street).

Some of us from Westgate Church will be gathering in Marlborough at the park across the street from the clinic (Union Common, corner of Main and Bolton) for a silent protest of prayer—no signs, no yelling, just taking our concerns and heartbreak to the Lord of creation, who is a father to the fatherless and a defender of widows (Ps. 68:5).

We will pray for pregnant mothers in crisis, and for the children they carry–that God would protect and preserve both mother and child. We will pray for those who have had abortions, that they would find forgiveness and cleansing in Christ. We will pray for moms who have chosen to have their babies–for proper care and support. And we will pray that God would open the eyes of our nation to the dark realities of abortion, and bring this atrocity to an end, beginning with the defunding of Planned Parenthood.

If you’re in the area, feel free to join us. Click here and here to learn more about abortion and the current events surrounding Planned Parenthood.

    Thank you, Pastor Levering.

    Also, for anyone coming to Marlborough, there is a public parking lot diagonally across from the park where we will be meeting. That might be the most convenient place to meet.
