40 DAYS FOR LIFE IS...
Prayer and fasting:
Christ told us that some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting
. The two go hand in hand.
40 Days for Life's most visible aspect is a peaceful prayer vigil
outside an abortion facility.
During 40 Days for Life, the message is proactively taken to the community
through focused efforts.
"We have the power to stop abortion, even while it remains legal. Now is the time to mobilize, sustained by prayer. I strongly endorse the 40 Days for Life effort. I look forward to promoting it nationwide and participating in it in many communities."
Fr. Frank Pavone
Priests for Life
"This campaign is exactly what the pro-life movement has been waiting for. 40 Days for Life will prepare pro-life activists across the country to end abortion in our lifetimes. The end is near for legalized abortion on demand, and 40 Days for Life is leading the charge."
Students for Life of America
"Fasting and praying with 40 Days for Life unifies pro-life energies and illuminates us with grace in our efforts to conquer the culture of death. I strongly encourage every person and organization that believes in the dignity of life to join the 40 Days for Life campaign."
"I believe 40 Days For Life is an incredibly powerful movement to break the spiritual powers that still restrain the final overthrow of the death decree of 1973. Jesus fasted 40 days and broke the power of Satan himself. Why not 40 Days For Life?"
"40 Days for Life is sounding a clear trumpet blast calling the Church to engage with God's heart for the ending of abortion. This extraordinary mobilization of prayer gives us all hope that the culture of death can and will change."
