The call was put out in Bogota, Colombia ? and the faithful responded. They came at midnight, and they didn?t go home. Throughout the night, they were joined by others ? and a steady crowd of people continued to pray for an end to abortion throughout the day.

?Last night, in the middle of the night, there were more than 200 people with us to pray for life, for the end of abortion,? reads the report from the team in Bogota.??Thank you Lord! We invite you to register and come during these forty days ? all the times you can.?


Their Facebook page chronicled the first day of the first official campaign in Colombia:

Midnight: We're waiting for you at Santa Ana Church to participate in prayer and a candlelight vigil for life for our country.

2:37 am. It's cold, but the heart is full of love for you, Lord!

6:51 am. We are persevering in prayer. Today, this is a territory of peace and life.


8:40 am. We're praying for God?s mercy for all of us, that we have offended the Lord with our sin.

12:40 pm. Already half a day of staying awake with prayer and fasting ? because we love you, Lord, and we want to take care of the heart of women, and the life of their babies.

We look forward to seeing what God does in response to all the faithful in Colombia!
