Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:26 - 31
This Scripture speaks for itself, especially after the election we’ve just witnessed. Please continue to storm heaven today and every day for healing in our country. For peace among Republicans and Democrats. For kindness from both sides instead of boasting or name calling. And especially pray for President-elect Donald Trump that God will work both in him and through him.

News from October vigils in Wood Dale:
** During the month of October, we estimate that 64 boys and girls were killed at Advantage Health Care.
** However, we were blessed to witness 2 SAVES in October!
- Two girls appearing to be in their 20's pulled into the parking lot and just sat in the car. Prayer warriors offered help and non-stop prayers. Although the girls would not engage in conversation, they left without ever going in after almost ONE hour of sitting in the car. Imagine the battle for the soul of that woman and her child.
- We believe there was another save of a baby conceived in rape. We are unsure of the circumstances but the couple was seen leaving before the doctor arrived. The myth that abortion after rape helps women must be dispelled by the truth. In discussions on this difficult topic, it helps to stay focused on the woman herself. Remind others that it is her baby too, abortion cannot "un-rape" her, the abortion is a further invasive violence against the woman who would now become the perpetrator against an innocent victim (her own child). Finally, I find it helpful to share the amazing statistic that in several studies of rape victims 0% of women who gave life to their child regret the decision. On the other hand, depending on the study, between 70-98% of women who abort their child conceived in rape regret it.
