Just one week from today, 40 Days for Life will start ? in 273 cities across North America and around the world!

Find the peaceful prayer vigil nearest you!

As we prepare for 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion ? there are women and men scheduling appointments today ... to have abortions in your community next week.

But God answers prayers ? and He can use YOU to save a baby from abortion ? so let?s prepare our hearts to ask!

Every 40 Days for Life campaign, we stand in witness as God changes hearts ... and that happens on the sidewalks outside of abortion centers where faithful Christians pray. To date, we are aware of:

  • 11,165 babies who were spared from abortion

  • 127 abortion workers who had a change of heart and quit their jobs

  • 64 abortion centers that have closed their doors forever

The simple explanation? The power of prayer and the love of Christ at that crucial moment.

Just ask a mom who went in for an abortion ... chose life for her baby ... and then joined the prayer vigil! That was the case of Mareza in Milwaukee, who saw a 40 Days for Life vigil in progress as she arrived for an abortion.

Mareza had the opportunity to leave because of the presence of a big man with a big heart. Dan Miller, who stands an imposing 6' 7" tall, had overcome an initial fear of going out to pray ... and eventually began leading campaigns.

Dan was able to offer hope to Mareza ? and her son ? when she felt alone and out of options.

You can listen to Dan and Mareza?s inspirational story in the new 40 Days for Life podcast episode, ?She chose life ... then joined the vigil.?

God can ? and will ? work through you to end abortion if we trust His promise and simply ask. This scripture passage captures the heart of why we pray during 40 Days for Life:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

? 2 Chronicles 7:14

As we get ready, I ask you to pray for our culture, find your closest campaign ... and sign up to pray at your local peaceful vigil between February 10 and March 20:

We can?t wait to see what miracles God brings to your town!
