40 Days for Life starts TODAY in 505 cities around the globe, and...

...with politicians openly advocating for cold-blooded infanticide, your prayers are needed more than ever before!

And prayer works! Former abortion providers report that when YOU show up to pray, the no-show rate for abortion appointments can go as high as 75%!

We just released a video featuring a mom who was moments away from an abortion in Little Rock, Arkansas--until prayers from the 40 Days for Life vigil led her to get off the table and choose life!

To watch the video, click the image or visit:


Heather never told the vigil participants she chose life...until those same volunteers she saw praying for her spoke at her church!

You'll also meet Marietta, Georgia 40 Days for Life leader Rachel, who explains the power of prayer--even if you don't have access to talk with abortion clients.

Both of these courageous women remind us that simply showing up can mean the difference between life and death.

Make the difference! Sign up TODAY to pray at the 40 Days for Life vigil closest to you:



40 Days for Life Board Chair and General Counsel Matt Britton visited campaigns in Baltimore and Bethesda, Maryland this weekend.

Matt said that a Planned Parenthood escort played satanic music to try to drive rally attendees away.

Of course, it didn't work.

"Tough neighborhood," Matt reflected. "But not as tough as inside Planned Parenthood if you are unborn."

The kickoff rally in Bethesda included about 100 pro-lifers who are praying in front of LeRoy Carhart's third-trimester abortion facility.

New York Times bestselling author George Weigel attended--as a participant!


Plainfield, New Jersey

The 40 Days for Life team in Plainfield, New Jersey hosted its kickoff rally this past Saturday. Traffic was heavy, leading to a tremendous opportunity to witness to the community. Tragically, traffic into the abortion facility was heavy as well.

"Just before 11:00 am, a woman peeked out the front door to see what was going on outside," said Lisa, the local leader. "Our presence was obvious, and hopefully someone's spiritual eyes and ears were opened."

Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast … Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, your people." —Joel 2:15-17

Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth. See today's full devotional
