Prayer takes many forms, starting with scripture. Consider making a commitment to reading the New Testament over the course of this 40 Day Campaign. A mere 1/2 hour per day should be sufficient to read through the bible, following this plan.
40 Days for Life is rooted in prayer. To help us keep focused on the Lord and in tune with His guidance, we will prepare a series of daily devotionals for each of the 40 days of the campaign.
We fervently believe that prayer and fasting will end abortion, and your prayers will be very much needed and appreciated.
Devotionals will appear online during the campaign from September 24 through November 2. Printable versions will also be available.
To receive devotionals and other campaign information by e-mail, please use the "get updates" form at the top right corner of this page. You can also directly download the entire list of devotionals.

Prayers for Our Nation
As next year will again be an election year, it only makes sense that we pray for Our Nation, Our Leaders and Our Citizens as we approach the coming elections. Please consider participating in this Prayer for Our Nation on a daily basis, throughout the end of the campaign.
Some evils can only be overcome through prayer and fasting. Fasting can consist of anything form giving up food, to giving up a simple pleasure, one that doesn't give all honor and glory to God. We have known some who have lived for 40 Days on as strict a fast as to only drink a lemonade made with maple syrup. Others have supplemented this strict fast with a complete protein bread.
We have recipe cards available for anyone who would like to try these fasting foods. Other forms of fasting can consist of avoiding chocolate or television, we ask that you select something you like, but which isn't fundamental to keeping your focus on Christ, and giving it up over the 40 Days of our campaign, as a means of giving all the Glory to God. Prayer for Our Nation on a daily basis, throughout the end of the campaign.
