Maybe you've considered leading a 40 Days for Life campaign in your community this March 6 through April 14...

...but you haven't taken the leap of faith because you aren't quite sure exactly what the commitment entails. When you apply to launch a 40 Days for Life campaign, you're committing to lead your community on a 40-day campaign of:


  1. Prayer and fasting for an end to abortion

  2. Community outreach to educate your community on the tragic reality of abortion--right where you live

  3. Peaceful vigil where you'll attempt to cover the public right-of-way in front of your local abortion business with prayer volunteers at least 12 hours a day


Launching a 40 Days for Life campaign isn't easy. It's not always fun. You don't get a lot of recognition and you might not even see the fruits of your labor until years down the line.

But for every hour you recruit a volunteer to pray in front of your local abortion business, as many as three out of every four abortion-bound women break their appointments.

The investment of leading a campaign is significant. The reward is eternal.
