40 Days of Prayer

What is 40 Days for Life?

It is a coming together with a peaceful, prayerful presence to witness our care, compassion, and concern for the unborn and for their mothers.  For those considering abortion for any reason, that they might be connected to resources to offer a mom in crisis an alternative, life-saving choice.  For those workers in the abortion industry, that they might have a change of heart.

When is 40 Days for Life? 

The official prayer vigils are organized during the 40-day seasons of Advent and Lent.  The spring vigil will run from February 17 – March 28, 2021.

How and where can I participate?

Each day during 40 Days for Life, individuals, churches, families, and groups will be asked to join together in prayer during one-hour sign-up slots for a specific request so the entire Body of Christ can unite around a common focus.  God promises to hear us wherever we pray so it can be in your home, your workplace, your church, your college campus, or at one of the official 40 Day vigil sites where abortions are performed.     https://www.40daysforlife.com/vigil-search.aspx.  If you pray at a site, materials will be on-hand for prayer volunteers to connect moms to material help available locally assisting them in their choice for life for their baby.

Why is coming together for prayer important?

Since 40 Days for Life’s founding in 2007, over 20,000 churches in 7440 local campaigns with over 1 million volunteers have participated in over 1000 cities in 63 countries.

18,003 lives have been saved from abortion, 107 abortion centers have closed, and 211 abortion workers have quit.  Prayer is powerful!
