From 40 Days For Life: DAY 1: The biggest ever!


Dear Deacon John,
The biggest Lenten 40 Days for Life campaign yet is finally here ...
… and now we need YOU to step out in faith and go to the closest location to pray and fast for an end to abortion!
40 Days for Life begins TODAY -- and continues through March 25 -- in 354 communities across the United States and 24 other countries ... including multiple locations in nations such as Canada, Colombia, Croatia, Mexico, Romania and the United Kingdom!
It is because of your prayers that God has provided so many blessings:
  • 13,998 lives have been saved from abortion
  • 170 abortion workers experienced conversions and left their jobs
  • 94 abortion centers closed forever after 40 Days for Life vigils outside their doors
Let’s get ready to pray, fast and stand vigil!
To help you have the best possible focus, listen to one of our newest 40 Days for Life podcast episodes: "First Things First -- Again."

Walnut Creek, California

Dr. Haywood Robinson (at left above), a member of the 40 Days for Life board of directors, helped kick off Walnut Creek's fourth campaign.
Joining him at the kickoff was Rev. Walter Hoye of the Issues 4 Life Foundation.
"Dr. Robinson and Rev. Hoye got our vigil off to a great start," the Walnut Creek team reported. "Because they are willing to share their stories ... people have been motivated to work for the protection of life, all in the love of Christ."


Cincinnati, Ohio

The 40 Days for Life campaign got off to a rather chilly start outside the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Cincinnati. "Even on a freezing cold day the faithful showed up to wrap this horrible site in deep prayer," said one of the Cincinnati leaders.
"We pray for all staff, all victims and anyone impacted from the tragedy of abortion." This is the 20th campaign in Cincinnati.


Sibenik, Croatia

Community outreach is a huge part of the 40 Days for Life effort in Sibenik – one of 28 Croatian communities taking part in this campaign. And they have stacks of helpful material ready to distribute.
"During the campaign," said one of the local coordinators, "we will be touring the churches of our area, speaking about the importance of the gift of life and encouraging people to pray in front of our hospital in Sibenik."
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.
