Dear CT pro-life warriors,
A life-saving prayer project is taking place here in Connecticut from September 26 through November 4th. I’m hoping that your congregation will be able to join us as we unite with many other cities for a peaceful, prayerful, simultaneous pro-life outreach – 40 Days for Life.
40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that generates measurable life-saving results. So far, 40 Days for Life campaigns have been conducted in 769 communities in 50 nations. More than 14,600 children have been reported as saved from abortion. Local abortion numbers have dropped – as much as 28%. Post-abortive women (and men) are finding healing and forgiveness. In each city, hundreds — more than 1,000 in some cases — are getting involved with local life-saving ministry efforts for the first time.
40 Days for Life is a cross-denominational, faith-based effort made up of three key components:
- Prayer and fasting: Inviting people of faith throughout our city to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion
- Peaceful vigil: Standing for life through a 40-day peaceful, prayerful, public witness outside the local abortion facility or Planned Parenthood
- Community outreach: Taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, church presentations, door-to-door advocacy, and public visibility
All participants are asked to sign a statement of peace in which they pledge to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner. 40 Days for Life has been endorsed by many prominent national leaders. To learn more about the plans for the forthcoming coordinated effort, you can visit: www.40daysforlife.com .
Check out the video below to learn more about 40 Days for Life. Share this post and the video with your pro-life friends and loved ones. We want as many people as possible to be a praying witness outside CT abortion clinics.
Here’s information for the 40 Days for Life prayer gatherings in Danbury, Hartford and Norwich. Take time out of your day and stand in prayer for the most vulnerable among us.
