The 40 Days For Life Pray To End Abortion Spring Campaign starts tomorrow, March 5 (Ash Wednesday) and runs through April 13 (Palm Sunday). 40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God's power to end abortion. It brings together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God's favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion. 40 Days For Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
» Prayer and Fasting: Prayer is at the center of 40 Days for Life. Prayer must be the first thing we do if we want to end abortion.
» Peaceful Vigil: The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility in your community.
» Community Outreach: During 40 Days for Life, the pro-life message is taken proactively to every corner of your community. Media outreach is conducted through carefully targeted news stories, talk shows, editorials and opinion pieces.
Please consider joining our 40 Days For Life friends in this campaign to end abortion in our nation. Since its modest beginning several years ago in Texas, it has grown exponentially across the country and internationally, saving thousands of infants' lives because of the modest commitment of every day people.
