Since applications to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign opened a few days ago … we’ve already heard from people in new cities – and new countries – who are ready to bring the campaign to their communities! If you’re ready … then apply now:
Leading a 40 Days for Life campaign can be hard … and just considering campaign leadership can create a lot of initial fear. Just ask Monique Ruberu.
Monique was nervous and little hesitant to apply. But she asked herself a question we all need to ask before the application period ends on December 18th:
Should my community participate in
the next 40 Days for Life campaign
from February 18 to March 29?
Monique lives in Philadelphia — a place where the abortion numbers seem overwhelming. For several years, it had been a city without a 40 Days for Life vigil.
It was less than a year ago that Monique first found inspiration and overcame that natural fear to pray outside the local Planned Parenthood abortion facility. What could have been a daunting experience instead turned out to be a grace-filled time of prayer with the Lord.
A friend asked her why there wasn’t a 40 Days for Life vigil there. It was then that Monique felt the need to “pay back some of God’s infinite kindness.”
She did that by volunteering to lead 40 Days for Life at that location — a business responsible for some 5,800 abortions every year.
It took a leap of faith … but she did it — and put everything in God’s hands.
That campaign reached out to an entire community and brought people to the sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood to pray for an end to abortion — and the Lord heard their prayers!
During Monique’s first 40 Days for Life campaign, “people just started showing up,” she said. “If God wants us to do something, He will somehow make it happen.”
Half of those people had never prayed at an abortion facility before.
During the campaign, 22 women turned away from Planned Parenthood … and six of those women came back to tell the vigil volunteers that they had rejected abortion and chosen life for their babies!
Every campaign starts because of the faith of one person. Someone like Monique Ruberu.
In your community … might that one person be you?
You have until Thursday, December 18, to apply to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign. Think about it, pray about it … and if you have any questions, please ask!
Then, if you feel you are called to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign in your town, go to:
All applications must be filed online by midnight local time on Thursday, December 18.
Maybe you will be the next one to lead 40 Days for Life in your city!
Just to be clear, applications are only for 40 Days for Life campaign leaders. You don’t need to apply to pray at your local vigil. Watch soon for opportunities to take part in your nearest campaign!
