From 40 Days For Life: Answers to questions, answers to prayers

40 Days for Life
Dear Deacon John,
We're down to the final few days of accepting applications to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign from March 5 to April 13.
Applications close at midnight Wednesday, January 29 ... and things are getting exciting ... as applications are coming in:
If you're discerning a leadership role -- and you still have questions about applying for a 40 Days for Life campaign -- we've just posted a list of answers to frequently asked questions online at:
The questions answered on that page include:
  • This seems overwhelming -- where do I start?
  • Why is there an application cut-off?
  • Is this only for people from certain churches?
  • Why is there a fee to lead a local campaign?
  • How much more will this cost our community?
  • Why apply? Can't we just do this on our own?
  • Why ask for 12 hours of daily vigil coverage?
  • Why focus our vigil on just one location?
  • Can I really do this?
Check out the answers at:
I'd also like to share a short video that demonstrates the power of prayer -- and shows what God can do when we participate in 40 Days for Life:
On that video, you'll meet Yvonne Viramontes -- who signed up to lead 40 Days for Life campaigns in La Puente, California -- along with some of her local campaign team members.
Yvonne and her team prayed for five 40 Days for Life campaigns outside a local abortion center ... before their prayers were answered and this abortion business finally closed its doors for good.
Another blessing you'll experience during the video is around the 12-minute mark, when you'll meet a beautiful baby girl saved from abortion through the prayers and efforts of Yvonne and her team.
It's powerful!
Perhaps you and your community will experience similar answers to prayers during the next 40 Days for Life campaign, from March 5 – April 13.
With God, all things are possible!
For Life,
 Shawn Carney
Campaign Director
