40 Days for Life kicks off tomorrow in 261 locations, including Russia, Nigeria
I’m on the road again today, after speaking at 40 Days for Life kickoff events in Jacksonville and Pensacola, Florida. The campaign officially starts TOMORROW … and NOW is the time for us all to make a decision.
40 Days for Life is merely an invitation. This campaign cannot happen without a response from people like you; and that leaves just one question:
What will God do over these next 40 days in your community … and will you be part of it?
It is our hope that you will join hundreds of thousands of others who have taken this journey of prayer and fasting … peaceful vigil … and community outreach.
There are 261 locations in all, so please follow this link and get involved in the closest campaign.
Many abortions are scheduled across our nation and around the world — tomorrow … and the next day … and the next. There is something we all can do. We can pray and stand vigil.
Over these past few weeks, our local leaders have been making schedules of their own — for volunteers who will be a witness to hope on the sidewalks.
Will you join them?
These prayer vigils work … as seen in Aurora, Illinois, where an ex-Planned Parenthood employee spoke — and a baby was saved — all at their 40 Days for Life kickoff event!
The local leaders in Aurora said they were “amazed and humbled” at their kickoff rally on a very chilly morning as they listened to one guest share her testimony — former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Trevino!
Ramona had a change of heart and quit her job at a Planned Parenthood office in Texas after a single 40 Days for Life campaign was held outside of her office just two years ago!
They couldn’t have asked for a better start. During the event, one of the sidewalk counselors told the group that a woman they had spoken to told them she wasn’t going into the abortion facility after all — she had changed her mind!
“We will only triumph over the evil of abortion by changing hearts,” said one of the volunteers, “which we can only do by a loving, peaceful approach.”
The abortion industry is responding aggressively to the threat to their profits. The vigil in Tempe will be held outside a Planned Parenthood facility that has increased its hours of operation by 40% … and has apparently added additional abortion days to its weekly schedule.
“Now is the time to bring a cloud of witness,” said Lisa in Tempe. “We need to lift up our prayers and put all our trust in Jesus.” If more people stand witness, others will see this display of faith — and they in turn will join the vigil as well.
“I pray that God will call you to take at least one hour for each week of this campaign,” she said. “One hour, once a week, for 40 days can save lives … and souls.”
Here’s the link to today’s devotional.
Let’s pray, fast, and shape history together starting tomorrow!
