40 Days for LIFE, Fall 2013

One of the reasons I am fervent and outloud about my prolife ministry is because of 40 Days for Life. As I went around the mountain for the umpteenth time, I found peace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ and 40 Days for Life. I knew God was calling me to prolife ministry and just like anyone that has not ventured to the unknown, I was petrified. But 40 Days made me aware, attentive, prepared for a way to witness all year, not just the 40 Days campaigns. The Fall 2013 Campaign is September 25 – November 3. Find your local vigil here.

40 Days Fall 2012

For those of you that have not prayed on the sidewalk at the abortion facility OR that has not come to terms with your abortion, this is a perfect time and place to do it. I know the sidewalk can be scary…the pre-abortive and their coercers can be combative, passers-by can be critical, the pro-choicers that show up to protest us are using intimidation to make us stop…BUT I promise you that your obedience to what God called you to do will minimize what persecutes us as faithful witnesses.

From the 40 Days site:

“40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:

40 Days for Life“40 Days for Life takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion.”

Cooperation is KEY. Everyone is welcome: Evangelicals, Protestants, Catholics, Jews, everyone! This is not about ecumenicism, it is COOPERATION to share the sidewalk. I know that many people, some I know personally, will not stand shoulder to shoulder on the sidewalk and that’s too bad. We should never let personal agenda keep us from being a faithful witness on the sidewalk to save lives.

During 40 Days, you may come as an individual or with a church group to pray as you wish TO END ABORTION. We are all there for the same thing, to save our unborn from abortion death.

You may see KeepLifeLegal’s Statement of Faith here and Purpose & Vision here.

This is what you SHOULD NOT DO:

  • Yell at anyone; the pre-abortive, coercers, abortionists, passers-by, etc.
  • Persecute other faithful witnesses; This is a cooperation on the sidewalk
  • Be combative for any reason; if anyone is combative with each other on the sidewalk, it does not show our heart toward saving the unborn. It is confusing to the pre-abortive.

This is what you SHOULD DO: 

  • Purpose to be at the sidewalk as often as you can.
  • Be a prayerful faithful witness.
  • Did I say SHOW UP? We really want to see you there!

It has been proven that when people show up at abortion facilities, they CLOSE. These facilities can’t handle the constant prayerful vigil for LIFE. It proves what they do is wrong and needs to stop.
