It begins TOMORROW (+ UK video!)

February 21st, 2012 by admin

Are you ready to be part of something BIG?

Are you ready to pray and fast, stand in peaceful vigil, change hearts and minds — and save lives?

If so, it will require sacrifice … but it will be worth it.

Tomorrow, you have the opportunity to join the largest spring 40 Days for Life campaign in history, as it kicks off in 258 cities across America and around the world!

Find the location nearest you!

When we conducted the first 40 Days for Life campaign in College Station, Texas, back in 2004, if you had told me that 40 Days for Life would spread around the globe … I wouldn’t have believed it.

We thought there would be ONE — and only one — 40 Days for Life campaign. EVER.

Thankfully, God’s plans were bigger than ours … and 40 Days for Life has now been conducted in hundreds of cities and towns across all 50 American states — and thirteen other countries.

One of those countries where 40 Days for Life is making a profound impact is England. This spring, there will be four local campaigns conducted across Great Britain.

A few days ago, they flew 40 Days for Life national director David Bereit and me “across the pond” to help kick off campaigns in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

We were amazed to see how God has inspired thousands of people across the UK to pray and fast, stand in peaceful vigil and participate in community outreach … and now YOU can see the big picture by watching this brand-new 15-minute video of how 40 Days for Life is positively impacting England.

As I said … this is BIG. And you can be a part.

40 Days for Life is God’s work — but in order to make this happen, He needs YOU!

We start tomorrow. Will you be there?

To find the closest 40 Days for Life campaign, and to find out how you can get involved, go to locations.

Let’s get to work saving lives!

Here’s the link to today’s devotional.

Let’s pray, fast, and shape history together starting tomorrow!

For Life,

Campaign Director
40 Days for Life

    We are ready and waiting for our campaign to begin tomorrow in Nashville! This is our 4th campaign and we hope that many people who have been sitting back thinking about coming out to pray in front of the Women’s Center will have a change of heart and will rush to the prayer vigil to make a difference. Our hope is to close this unregistered abortion clinic. We welcome everyone out there to spread the word in love, bring a friend, Christ is waiting for us to step up and step out…doing something “hard” for the souls who are suffering. We cannot be silent…anymore!

  2. Patricia Hinkel Says:

    It is very exciting to see other countries beside the United States getting involved in this wonderful program. Our world is in much need of prayer and fasting, and especially for the unborn and the elderly.

  3. Paula Guinnip Says:

    The video from London was inspiring and interesting. Once again God is triumphing over Satan and reach ing people that need it the most. The truth is we can all help and do our part. I want to personally make this the best campaign ever.

  4. Kathy Fotouhi Says:

    The video from England was so inspiring. To see so many of them get excited about 40 Days for Life for all the same reasons I did was renewing and energizing.
    I think 40 Days for Life is the single most important activity to get involved with to end abortion…to bring hope…to unite all people against the Culture of Death and ultimately bring victory for the Culture of Life.
    God bless the U.K.’s 40 Days for Life, and all of us!

  5. Pat DeGray Says:

    AWESOME!!! Gives such great hope!

  6. Andrea Beauchane Says:

    The UK video was wonderful, inspiring and a great boost to the kick-off of this Lenten, spring, semi-annual opportunity to pray, fast and stand vigil for life. We pray here for mothers, fathers and clinic employees to be converted to a culture of life. God bless all participants each day of this first campaign of 2012!

    I love this video -Thanks for all that you do for LIFE!

    Hi Shawn,

    First it was a delight to meet you and pray for you Sunday night in Pittsburgh – may God give you the stamina you need to travel so much at this time!

    As for the video, I was born in England and revisited after many years. It was a great trip, but the depressing part was that so many of the churches were closed or falling down. From the UK video, it seems that in a short period of time, not only is there a growing excitement uniting prolife people there, but a spiritual revival going on also. That warms my heart, especially in light of the numbers of unchurched people in the UK, and also in light of the high rate of child homicides (by parents and “partners”) reported. Could there be a connection between the two?

    It seems to me that there may be some very positive unintended consequences of this 40 Days movement (other than saving babies and helping women in crisis pregnancies) that are yet to come.

    God bless you, Pauline Donnelly

    Great video – thank you so much for coming over to encourage us. May all the campaigns this year be hugely blessed!

  11. Patrice Wolfe Says:

    Shawn and David,

    Way to go!
    What an inspirational video from England! We join with our British Brothers and Sisters in Christ in prayer to end abortion in our time (which is His Time!)! I praise God for your fortitude and perseverence! We are ready to accept this challenge! Abortion will be ended from Little Rock to London!

  12. Brigada Says:

    GOD IS ON OUR SIDE+++
    THE BATTLE IS FIERCE BUT; RIGHT TO ALL STAGES & AGES OF LIFE WILL PREVAIL OVER DEATH BY ABORTION & EUTHANASIA+++
    “IVF PROCEDURE” HAS PROVEN THAT HUMAN LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION & NATURAL DEATH WHEN WE BREATHE OUR LAST BREATH!
    JESUS SON OF GOD HAVE MERCY+++
    PRACTICE & KEEP THE FAITH-INCREASE OUR HOPE-UNITY IN LOVE WORKS+++

  13. Bonnie Says:

    Thank you for showing us this very inspiring video! It is so exciting to see what God is doing around the world, & it helps us to realize that we are not alone in this fight for life. We cannot give up ’til abortion & all anti-life actions are stopped everywhere! May God grant us the grace to fight on to victory!

  14. Diane Courcier Stringer Says:

    From my first 40 days in Sacramento in 2010, to a little rural town in south central Or. were I have been replanted, God is on the move. I believe this could not only be the begining of the end to abortion, but also the start of a world wide revival as men and women’s hearts are turned back to a loving and forgiving God and this great evil in our society is ended. DCS.

  15. Mary Ann P. Van Buskirk Says:

    I loved it and inspired because it was to the point . There are no places to attend where I live, but am praying for the end of abortion.

  16. Cami Murphy Says:

    Thanks be to God for 40 more Days for Life. I am looking forward to 40 days of praying, fasting, tears (of sorrow and joy), and reading your emails daily. Though I cannot be part of a sidewalk campaign, I am totally united with you in spirit.

    May God bless all of His 40 Days for Life workers, and especially bless the unborn babies and their parents!

    Cami

  17. Patricia Says:

    I am so happy and excited about yet another 40 Days for Life campaign.
    This is the most joyous happening in my life and around the world in my opinion.
    Victory in Jesus. Praying to end abortion around the world.
    Thank you Shawn and David for your awe inspiring perserverance, standing
    for light, love and Christ in this oftentimes dark and dismal sin infested world.

  18. Mary Fritts Says:

    Awesome! God is working in mysterious way.

  19. MRS JANET HERON Says:

    THIS VIDEO IS AN AN ANSWER TO PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT THE RIGHT TO LIFE. SUPPORTING PREGNANT WOMEN IS ESSENTIAL. PRAYER AND FASTING CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS AND CHANGE PEOPLES HEARTS. THERE MUST BE ENOUGH LOVE IN THE WORLD TO LOVE AND SUPPORT ALL WOMEN AND GIRLS WHO NEED IT TO SAVE THEIR BABIES. TO SHOW THEM ALTERNATIVES AND HANDS ON HELP TO CONTINUE WHAT GOD HAS BEGUN. THIS IS ENCOURAGING. I BELONG TO MANCHESTER PRO LIFE AND HAVE JOINED 40 DAYS FOR LIFE.

  20. Dave Mattozzi Says:

    Let us all pray for an end to abortion.

  21. Paulette Matthews Says:

    It is so wonderful that David and Shawn could be in England to personally witness what God is doing through 40 Days. Sharing the video binds us all closer together in Christ when we witness that what is being done in England is exactly what we are doing here in the United States praying to give life and hope to the babies and their mothers.

    It is so inspiring for us when one of the 40 Days for Life National team members comes and prays at our local campaigns. I am sure those in England are just as inspired as it gives a spiritual cohesiveness to all that we do when we are praying, witnessing and reaching out to the community. In our hearts we know that we are never alone.

  22. Connie Reza Says:

    We are so ready to save moms and babies!!
    May God Bless this campain and may God Bless all participants!!

  23. Yvonne Viramontes Says:

    I feel the sincerity in everyone. I have goosebumps and a big smile. I am so excited for the new leaders. I can’t wait to hear of the blessing God, sends to England and all 40 Days For Life locations.

    Blessing to all!

    P.S. I can’t wait for Day 1.

  24. Bernelle Goodwin Says:

    What an uplifting video! It is so good to know that other countries are interested in saving God’s unborn. There seemed to be great excitement there as many people are interested in saving lives. I am 83 years old and have arthritis in one knee which prevents me from going to an abortion center to pray. I have been praying with 40 Days for Life for about three years now, at home. The devotionals and updates you send from many cities each day is awe-inspiring. It helps me as I pray at home to know there are many out there praying and many lives are being saved. May God bless each of you as you honor your commitment to do God’s will. I pray daily for each of you.

  25. Esther Davis Says:

    It is so awesome that God has sent you there. God bless you wherever you go.

  26. Gary Quinn Says:

    I can’t wait to see what God is about to do here in McKinney, Texas starting tomorrow morning. We join all of you across the country and in other countries as we stand together as one body of Christ lifting our voices together in prayer to our awesome God. Come Holy Spirit and bless us these 40 days.

  27. Lorraine Ferrall Says:

    It was beautiful to see the enthusiasm of all of the people partaking in the 40 days for Life. They are on fire with the passion to save our smallest brothers and sisters and to give them a voice. They are also filled with compassion for the mothers and fathers of these children.

  28. Susanne Westh Larsen Says:

    The video from England is so full of hope and inspiration for all of us. And Europe certainly needs it. Thankyou Lord for your guidance, strengthening and protection to all who stand up for the unborn during this spring 40 Days for Life campaign.

  29. Juliane Bertagne Says:

    I know very well what the 40 Days participants are fighting in England and Europe in general. God bless all of them! The commitment and excitement in their faces is so inspiring. Sometimes I feel despair but when I do, I will remind myself that even now, God is doing awesome work in hearts and minds! I hope one day to be there during a 40 Days campaign so I can stand with them in solidarity.

  30. Mary Beth Phillips Says:

    Greetings to our brothers and sisters in England from Germantown, Maryland, USA,
    Your participation and excitement are very inspirational! We are all encouraged by the work of William Willberforce in Britain’s Parliament to bring about the end of slavery. Now we see that a great work that began with one hour of prayer in Texas has traveled back across the Atlantic Ocean to encourage those of you in the UK to stand up to stop another great evil. Europe and the US have been described as postmodern, “past Christianity”, yet God is using abortion to spark revival in His Church. God is uniting brothers and sisters in Christ around the world to fight the wiles of the enemy, to stop the sacrifice of our babies to a modern day Molech.
    May God be glorified as we fast and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, from our fears, from our silence, from our confusion.
    May God hear our prayers and heal our lands!!! Amen.
