A focused pro-life campaign that has already mobilized over 400,000 people worldwide, saved more than 5,000 lives from abortion, led to the conversion of 61 abortion workers, and seen 19 abortion facilities close.  40 DAYS FOR LIFE is made up of three components:

  • Prayer and Fasting:  believers throughout our city are invited to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion
  • Peaceful Vigil:  stand for life during a 40-day peaceful public witness outside the local Planned Parenthood facility
  • Community Outreach:  help take a positive, upbeat pro-life messsage to every corner of our city through media efforts, advocacy, and public visibility.
