40 Days For Life: DAY 1: It all starts today!

Deacon John,
Today, we enter into 40 days of prayer and fasting, community outreach, and peaceful vigil ... and we do so at a time when our culture needs prayer more than ever.
The current attacks on family, marriage, and the unborn are unprecedented -- and abortion proponents grow bolder by the day.
An international abortion organization has "honored" 40 Days for Life by proclaiming today, September 28, as the "Global day of action for access to safe and legal abortion," which they consider a "human rights issue."
This is not a time in history for discouragement; it is a time for faith, prayer, and action.
And we're ready!
40 Days for Life begins TODAY -- in 367 locations in all 50 US states and 23 other countries ... and we need YOU!
Find the location nearest you at ... 
... and step forward in faith to pray and fast for an end to abortion.
The 40 Days for Life UNITED bus tour is heading to all 50 US states in 40 days. David Bereit of 40 Days for Life has a recap of last night's kickoff in Washington, DC.
A dedicated crowd gathered outside the US Supreme Court last night to pray and kick off the UNITED 40 Days for Life campaign and bus tour, while thousands more from around the world watched the event on streaming video. 
You'll hear pro-life leaders explaining why they're so excited to be participating in the UNITED campaign and tour, including:
  • Georgette Forney, Co-founder, Silent No More Awareness
  • Jor-El Godsey, President, Heartbeat International
  • Tina Whittington, Executive VP, Students for Life of America
  • Marilyn Musgrave, VP of Government Affairs, Susan B. Anthony List
  • Jeanne Mancini, President, March for Life
You'll also hear moving comments from two US Congressmen who came out to the rally on their own volition -- Rep. Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania and Rep. Scott Garrett of New Jersey. 
And finally, you'll hear me and our North American campaign director, Steve Karlen, share exactly how YOU can help make a lifesaving difference by participating in the UNITED campaign and tour.
As the UNITED bus hits the road today, we can't wait to see what blessings God has in store!

Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast ... Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, your people."
--Joel 2:15-17
Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth.
