From September 27 to November 5, our community will take part in 40 Days for Life … a groundbreaking, coordinated international mobilization. We pray that, with God’s help, this will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city — and beyond.
WELCOME TO THE ATLANTA 40 DAYS FOR LIFE WEBSITE! :)

Please keep them all (and all those who go through with their abortion) in your prayers.

The details (scroll down further for EVENTS):
Hundreds of Christians of various denominations from around Atlanta are gathering together once again in prayer & fasting to seek the heart of God about the crisis of abortion in our community, and to be instruments of His light, hope, love & mercy to scared or hurting moms and dads.
The Biblical model of 40 days is used to focus a concentrated effort of corporate prayer & fasting.
How do we do this?
1) Prayer and fasting from home, work, in the car, etc. using the brief, beautiful devotionals you will receive via e-mail when you sign up here, which also include short daily praise reports from 40DFL locations globally! These prayers are prayed each day by hundreds of thousands of Christians in many countries - there is great power in this unified prayer!
2) For those who feel called to do so, we will also have a peaceful prayer vigil across the street from Feminist Women's Health Center on Cliff Valley Way in Atlanta. It will be every day from 6am to 10pm Sept 27 through Nov 5th. The purpose of this onsite vigil is:
* to bring the love, mercy, hope & light of Christ to the staff and patients
* to have info readily available, for any mom who decides to come speak with us, about the network of free help and support available to her
* to have info readily available for ANY employee/staff/doctor who wants to talk with us about help available to them to find a new job and experience Jesus' incredible mercy
* to raise awareness in the surrounding community of what is happening inside that building and to inspire that community to a) call for an end to abortion, and b) become motivated to increase support to moms & dads facing unexpected or difficult pregnancies
We are not there to judge, condemn, shout at or harass anyone.
You are not expected to hold a sign, but you may. You are not expected to have any literature with you or speak to any of the staff or patients, but in the event a patient or staff member should come speak with you, we have literature we can provide you with to simply hand them to explain what we are all about and the love we are there to offer.
If you have never prayed at an abortion clinic, but would like to join the vigil, please let us know you are new and if you would like an experienced person to go with you or meet with you beforehand personally to help you know what to expect, where to park, etc. Just e-mail Margarita at Atlanta40days@gmail.com and we will make these arrangements with you.
Fasting doesn't have to be from food --- it can be whatever you feel God leading you to give up for the 40 days as a form of prayer that deepens our relationship with God by making us more acutely aware of our need for Him and His all-sufficiency for us.
Fasting as corporate prayer is also a way of expressing repentance for our sins and those of our community, state, country and world. It is a way of bowing before God asking for His mercy with trusting, rejoicing hearts in all Jesus did for us. It is a powerful way of praying for our community.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail Margarita at Atlanta40days@gmail.com
Thanks and please join us in prayer & fasting Sept 27 through Nov 5th!
Hear amazing talks by Mark Pendleton and Dee Barnes of His Wonderful Works (www.hiswonderfulworks.com), as they share their personal testimonies of deliverance & healing from a homosexual lifestyle, about the link between the homosexual agenda and the abortion agenda, and how to respond with truth, love, hope & compassion to people struggling with these issues.
This is important info for us since Feminist Womens Health Center also trains "LGBTQ" advocates and aids in gender transformation.
40 Days for Life requires an attitude of love and humility in all our interactions with anyone.
If you are new to 40 Days for Life, this is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have. :)
