Amid a tumultuous and saddening election cycle, pro-life victories like these are encouraging. Do it again, Lord!

From LifeSiteNews. A total of nine municipalities in the states of Texas and Nebraska have passed measures outlawing abortion within their jurisdictions, making them “Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn.”

Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.


During the November 8 elections, citizens in five Nebraska villages and four Texas cities voted on a local ballot for abortion restrictions in their cities, according to a report by Live Action. 

The four cities in Texas that voted for the local pro-life legislation are Athens (population: 12,857, Henderson County); Abilene (population: 124,407, Taylor and Jones Counties); San Angelo (population: 101,004, Tom Green County); and Plainview (population 22,194, Hale County).

The Athens Ordinance also explicitly condemned the legacy of Curtis Wayne Boyd, an abortionist who killed over 10,000 unborn children through illegal abortions in the late 1960s, before Roe v. Wade, and opened the first “legal” abortion facility in Texas after the 1973 ruling.

Abortion at any stage of human development after conception was criminalized in Texas after a trigger law took effect on August 25, 2022.

The six Nebraska villages that voted for the local pro-life legislation are Arnold (population: 592, Custer County); Paxton (population: 516, Keith Country); Brady (population: 383, Lincoln County); Hershey (population: 649, Lincoln County); and Wallace (population: 318, Lincoln County). 

These important pro-life successes followed another significant victory when Hobbs, New Mexico (population 41,604, Lea County) passed a “sanctuary city for the unborn” ordinance, making it the first city in the state to effectively ban all abortions.

Lord, we are so grateful for these cities that value & understand the importance of life from conception to birth and after birth. We humbly ask Lord that, by the blessing of Your hand, Your mercy & grace & by people’s continued efforts — that You would show us Your favor and expand ten to a hundredfold, across our nation in every state — the birth of sanctuary cities to protect the children. We pray that sanctuary cities would spread like wildfire across our nation. Let the fire of Your Holy spirit fall upon people all across our cities & towns… planting the seeds to move forward with sanctuary cities. We yearn to see this happen Lord – in your name we humbly ask for Your help. Amen.

The city of Ave Maria in Florida is another such Pro-Life city. It was founded by the founder of Domino’s pizza.

Father God I thank you for these sanctuaries and the people who voted in favor of them. I pray that You will keep them strong in their convictions and bless them with peace, prosperity and joy, that they may be cities of light on a hill reflecting Your glory.

Dear Heavenly Father, We thank You for creating sanctuary cities here in America, where these unborn children will have safety and never be subjected to being murdered from the mothers womb. We thank those States and Cities who have voted this into law. Father, You created life and we Your people must protect all life, even before they enter this world. Our hearts grieve at the shameless evil, please remove the scales from the eyes of blinded people! Those who say it is their religious right to abort their baby, those who want to murder babies up day of delivery and beyond, Father change hearts and minds. Father, remove this evil out of our midst. Help us stand strong in prayer and fasting, help us win the lost for your kingdom and bind the wounds of those who hurt. Father, gather your people to a safe place when you punish the blatant evil in our land. We grieve, repent and turn from this wickedness, we cry out to you Lord, heal this land! In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen
