We were blown away by the response to our recent National 40 Days for Life Sign-Up Day. Thousands of pro-lifers from coast to coast hit the sidewalk to pray.

Marina in Bakersfield, California reported that a struggling family about to abort their sixth child chose life after vigil participants offered encouragement, free groceries, and other support.

A little girl or boy will get a chance at life because ordinary people like you decided to do something. On this recent video blog, I describe why YOU have more power to end abortion where you live than any politician in Washington:

The largest Lenten 40 Days for Life campaign in history begins TOMORROW in 567 cities around the world.

It's not just the number of cities that's growing. More peaceful vigil participants than ever are taking to the streets to pray for an end to abortion.

Join them by visiting 40daysforlife.com/location to find your closest vigil and sign up for prayer shifts on the sidewalk.

You just might be the next vigil participant to report a baby saved from abortion at the last desperate moment!

Fort Pierce, Florida

Fort Pierce is one of 43 cities participating in the year-round 40 Days for Life 365 initiative...

...and the campaign saved THREE babies on Saturday morning!

"Two couples never went into the clinic," reported Heather, the local leader. "One girl came with her mom, went in, and ended up leaving. Three hearts still beating!"

Saturday's big morning makes four saved babies on the year for peaceful prayer warriors. "We've never had a morning like that!" Heather said.

Kalamazoo, Michigan

1,300 miles and about 80 degrees Fahrenheit away from Fort Pierce, Joe hosted the Kalamazoo, Michigan 40 Days for Life kickoff rally.

About 40 people braved the subzero wind chills to launch the campaign.

"Our photographer could only tolerate bare hands for a quick photo while we started to gather," Joe said. "But, we offered up many prayers and cold fingers and toes for an end to abortion!"

Those cold fingers and toes make a big impression on abortion-minded women touched by the sacrifice of those who endure inclement weather to witness for life. That's why even more babies are saved during bad weather than good.

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

-- 2 Chronicles 7:14

Heavenly Father, we cry out for Your mercy and ask You to remove the scourge of abortion from our land. Use us as your vessels, Lord, to bring the light of Your truth to our nation once again.
