There’s one–and only one–key to making your involvement in 40 Days for Life fruitful: Entrust EVERYTHING to God.
But there are a variety of ways to RUIN your 40 Days for Life, and we review them on this week’s edition of The 40 Days for Life Podcast.
Titled “Uncle Screwtapes’s 7 steps to a useless 40 Days for Life campaign”, the episode (named after the classic C.S. Lewis demon) counts down the easiest ways to ruin your 40 Days for Life experience.

40 Days for Life Updates
The campaign in London, England is underway at the Marie Stopes abortion facility where the first British 40 Days for Life campaign was launched nearly a decade ago.
Though one passerby shouted, “Respect a woman’s choice!” it’s clear the campaign in the capital of the United Kingdom is making an impact.
“Hundreds of babies have been saved outside this clinic,” said 40 Days for Life Director of International Campaigns Robert Colquhoun.”Most of the hours are already filled, which looks very encouraging.”
About 100 40 Days for Life participants in the Steel City braved frigid winter weather for a one-mile lighted balloon procession.
Planned Parenthood tries to discourage vigil participation by asking donors to “pledge a picketer.” (It’s always about money, isn’t it?)
But pro-lifers are not deterred. Participation in the local vigil spans more than 80 churches across the Pittsburgh area!
“Someone is always there from 7 am ’til 7 pm every day,” said Tim.
Scripture and Prayer
Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” — Luke 1:30-33
Heavenly Father, you have made the womb of each woman a very special place. Help us to hold fast to the sanctity of this first home of humanity, remembering the wonderful mystery, that God inhabited the womb of a young woman and came forth as the savior and deliverer of the world.
