40 Days For Life is an intensive effort designed to raise awareness, save lives, bring healing, and lead our nation to repentance for the sin of abortion through three components:
40 days of prayer and fasting
40 days of peaceful vigil
40 days of community outreach
Christ tells us that 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. Fasting is not a Christian diet; it is a form of physical prayer. You can fast from food, TV, alcohol ... anything that separates you from God.
Each day between now and the end of the campaign, please commit to pray and fast for the nationwide effort, and for the efforts here in our city.

Our Spring 2013 Campaign, a 24-hour-a-day effort, began on February 13 and runs through March 24. You do not have to sign up to participate. If, during the scheduled on-site Prayer Vigil hours (7:00 AM until 7:00 PM every day of the week), your schedule opens up and you want to participate at the Prayer Vigil site, just show up! If you'd like to participate in our off-site Prayer Vigil (conducted on an individual basis), this goes 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM.
However you choose to participate, YOU can have a life-saving impact by joining our local prayer vigil at:
