Prayer & Fasting

Knowing that “with God, all things are possible,” people of faith and conscience unite in 40 days of prayer and fasting. Christ told us some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. The two go hand in hand. Prayer keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps us reach beyond our own limitations with God’s help.

Constant Vigil

The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility in your community. It is a peaceful and educational presence. Those who are called to stand witness during this 24-hour-a-day presence send a powerful message to the community about the tragic reality of abortion.

Community Outreach

During 40 Days for Life, the message is taken proactively to every corner of your community. Media outreach is conducted through carefully targeted news stories, talk shows, and editorials. Church involvement begins by meeting with local pastors, other church leaders, and members of different congregations. A door-to-door petition and education drive reaches out to every household in your town or city.

I am in this movement today because of ordinary people who took on an extraordinary task. My former abortion clinic is closed because of their sacrifice. Babies are alive because of them. Women are no longer being hurt by abortion in their community. You can do this. You can save a life. I now stand alongside you in this 40 Days for Life movement.

Abby Johnson

Former Planned Parenthood clinic director

Estoy en este movimiento hoy debido a la gente común que asumió una tarea extraordinaria. Mi antigua clínica de abortos está cerrada por el sacrificio de ellos. Los bebés están vivos gracias a ellos. Las mujeres ya no se ven perjudicadas por el aborto en su comunidad. Puedes hacerlo. Puedes salvar una vida. Ahora estoy a su lado en este movimiento de 40 Días por la Vida.

Abby Johnson

Ex Directora de la Clínica de Planned Parenthood

40 Días por la Vida es un testimonio del poder de la oración y de lo que puede suceder cuando nos consume una magnífica obsesión, a saber, que la vida es sagrada. Si se está cansando del creciente nivel de falta de respeto de los más inocentes entre nosotros, le insto a recordar que las situaciones no siempre son como parecen. Dios está en movimiento incluso en medio de la oscuridad.

Jim Daly

Presidente, Focus on the Family

40 Days for Life is a testimony to the power of prayer and what can happen when we're consumed by a magnificent obsession, namely that life is sacred. If you're growing weary over the increasing level of disrespect of the most innocent among us, I would urge you to remember that situations are not always as they appear. God is on the move even amidst the darkness.

Jim Daly

President, Focus on the Family

40 Days for Life has become an example to many communities on how to offer hope, compassion and love to those who feel that their only hope is an abortion. It's because this effort is built on prayer and it focuses on the most important level in America - the local level. This is where abortions take place, and that's where hearts and minds are being changed.

Mike Huckabee

Fox News host & former Arkansas governor

40 Días por la Vida se ha convertido en un ejemplo para muchas comunidades sobre cómo ofrecer esperanza, compasión y amor a quienes sienten que su única esperanza es el aborto. Es por el hecho que este esfuerzo se basa en la oración y se enfoca en el nivel más importante de Estados Unidos: el nivel local. Aquí es donde ocurren los abortos, y ahí es donde los corazones y las mentes están cambiando.
