A Unique Approach to Ending Abortion
From September 27 – November 5, 2017 our community will be one of many participating in a nationwide simultaneous 40 Days for Life.
40 Days for Life is an intensive effort designed to raise awareness, save lives, bring healing, and lead our nation to repentance for the sin of abortion through three components:
- 40 Days of prayer and fasting
- 40 Days of peaceful vigil
- 40 Days of outreach
1. Pray and fast
Christ told us that some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. The two go hand in hand. Prayer keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps us reach beyond our own limitations with God’s help. Fasting is not a Christian diet; it is a form of physical prayer. You can fast from food, TV, alcohol … anything that separates you from God.
Each day between now and the end of the campaign, please commit to pray and fast for the nationwide effort, and for the efforts here in our city.

3. Spread the word
The success of 40 Days for Life depends on the most powerful form of advertising in the world — word of mouth. Tell all of your friends, family members, co-workers, and fellow believers about 40 Days for Life. Encourage them to visit this web site where they can learn more and get involved.

5. Participate in the peaceful vigil
The peaceful, prayerful presence outside of Planned Parenthood is the most visible aspect of the 40 Days for Life campaign. Volunteers will stand outside of Planned Parenthood 24 hours a day for 40 days praying for an end to abortion and for more awareness of the tragedy of abortion. If you want to participate in the peaceful vigil this fall, please sign up to be on our listserv by clicking here.
You can help make a life-saving impact by joining our local vigil at:

The vigil is peaceful; participants sign a “Statement of Peace” with a pledge that they will conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner. All people are welcome!
