Prayer and Fasting

      • Prayer is at the center of 40 Days for Life. During each campaign, we are calling on people of faith across the nation … and around the world … to fall on their knees before the Lord, asking Him to hear our plea and heal our land.

Peaceful Vigil

    • The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day prayer vigil outside a single abortion facility in our community.

Community Outreach

  • Raising awareness through sidewalk vigil and by communicating with family, friends, church members, business associates, media, etc., about the injustice of abortion.


The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion.

  • We are concerned that there is not more protest, outcry, or activism in regard to these issues of life and death…. Surely those who call themselves Christians, having a moral base, should make these things a principal issue and be willing, even at the risk of personal sacrifice , to strive privately and publicly for the dignity and sanctity of the individual.
