40 DAYS FOR LIFE: DAY 3: The Lord's call for unity

Deacon John,
By the grace of God, we see different faith communities coming together through 40 Days for Life to defend the most innocent among us.
"Our kickoff was a very special anointed time!" wrote one of the 40 Days for Life team members in Atlanta, Georgia.
Volunteers gathered at First Alliance Church to prepare their hearts for the 40-day journey ahead.
"There were many beautiful Holy Spirit moments at our kickoff," the Atlanta leader said, "but something that really delighted my heart was seeing Protestant and Catholic, black and white coming together in prayer to seek God's heart and pray for our community. Already this shows the healing power of God that He longs to pour out everywhere!"
And that is just part of the beauty of 40 Days for Life!
We realize there are divisions among us ... but we stand as one when it comes to petitioning our Father in heaven to put an end to the evil of abortion.
Take time today to seek Him in prayer -- if possible, at one of the 340+ 40 Days for Life vigils around the world:
And speaking of vigils around the world ...

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
—Matthew 6:25-26
Loving heavenly Father, help us to see the worth of all human beings by the way in which you provide for us. We would ask that you provide also the faith, grace and courage to enable us to protect that which is so precious to you.
