WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- "God is amazing," said Shawn Carney, spokesman for the 40 Days for Life campaign. "In the first 24 hours of registrations for the September 26 – November 4 nationwide 40 Days for Life campaign, 22 cities signed up to participate. That is more communities than we ever originally expected to participate in this ambitious pro-life initiative, and there are still six days left for communities to register. We can't wait to see what God has in store for America this fall!"
40 Days for Life is an intensive pro-life campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of round-the-clock peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and 40 days of aggressive community outreach. The 40 day model was taken from sacred scripture where God transformed individuals, cities, and nations in 40 day periods. Seven cities have previously conducted 40 Days for Life campaigns, with results ranging from a 28% reduction in abortions to more than 1,000 new volunteers getting involved in local pro-life efforts.
"40 Days for Life gives people of faith and conscience the opportunity to save lives and make a difference at the grassroots level in their own community," said Carney. "When they join with other cities across America in this fall’s campaign, the collective effort has the potential to significantly impact the abortion debate in our nation. It is not about raising money or building a national organization; it is about saving lives in cities and towns all across America."
Communities wanting to participate in the September 26 – November 4 campaign may register from now until Wednesday, August 15 at: www.40DaysForLife.com
The list of all participating communities will be released once registrations are complete.
