The team in Jackson described their opening prayer rally as a "blessed event." These volunteers are into their sixth 40 Days for Life campaign.

The organizers offered their thanks to "the musicians, clergy and several hundred prayer witnesses who came to seek God's blessing and glorify Him as we embark on 40 Days of prayer to end abortion and ask for healing for those affected by its aftermath."

The coordinators say they will pray "that with God's help, this will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city -- and beyond."
