Have you ever prayed outside an abortion facility at midnight? What about 2 am? Or 3 am?

Right now, there are many 40 Days for Life vigils that take place 24-hours every day. If you've never been to an overnight vigil ... or just want to see what it's like ... watch this short video, featuring Steve Karlen, our North American campaign director, that was recorded at a 24-hour vigil in Wisconsin.

The natural question can be, ?What possible good are you doing out there in the middle of the night? The place is closed ? and nobody sees you!?

The abortion facility is closed ... but God doesn't hear or answer prayers based on their business hours. Abortion survives on distraction in our busy world ... and there are no distractions in the still and silent hours of the night.

We saw the power of all-day, all-night prayer during the first 40 Days for Life campaign in Texas in 2004 ... when the Knights of Columbus created the Knight Shift. They committed to pray on the sidewalks outside the abortion business ? every night ? from 11 pm to 7 am.

There?s something special about the non-stop prayer witness that?s hard to explain. I encourage you to watch this video ... and if you're able, pray at your closest vigil -- night or day.
