40 Days for Life!

Our family learned about 40 Days for Life a year or two ago.  Last year, we read the 40 Days for Life book (which we highly recommend!) and also participated in their fall campaign with spending a few afternoons praying at the closest Planned Parenthood facility. 

Sometimes the fight for life can be overwhelming to us. What can we as individuals do?  Well, we found lots of encouragement through the efforts of the folks that started and run the 40 Days for Life campaigns.

We'd like to encourage you all to read the 40 Days for Life book with us during the upcoming campaign.  We have a whole box of them, so we'd love to give or loan one to you!  And we can all earnestly be praying together during these 40 days! We know you would also enjoy following their daily updates on their website  under "updates," or you can sign-up to receive them by email.  They are sure to be very inspiring once again!

The next campaign starts on September 24th . . .next Wednesday!

Shawn Carney, the director of the campaigns just sent out this email today . . . .
"Just a quick note before the weekend to remind you that the next 40 Days for Life campaign starts on Wednesday, September 24 ... and runs through Sunday, November 2.  

There will be peaceful prayer vigils in 297 cities in 13 countries ... so now is a great time to find the one nearest you: 

Once you get there, go to the page for that city and sign up for the vigil!

Many of the locations are holding kickoff rallies between now and the start of the campaign — you'll find information about those events on many of the local pages, so please make note of the time and place and, if you can ... be there!  

Again, the link to find a local 40 Days for Life campaign is:  

We start our daily campaign updates and devotionals on Tuesday ... so have a great weekend, and I'll talk to you again soon!"

For Life, 

 Shawn Carney
