 40 Days for Life in Greensboro, North Carolina

The 40 Days for Life campaign is firmly rooted on a foundation of prayer and fasting. To help maintain focus on the Lord and stay in tune with His guidance, we have prepared a series of daily devotionals — one for each of the 40 days of the spring 2011 campaign.

We fervently believe that prayer and fasting will end abortion, and your prayers are very much needed and appreciated. Please follow the links below to read and meditate upon these brief reflections.

Printable versions are available; please click the link at the bottom of each devotional.

Thanks for the great post, Salvation!

Prayer changes things! God responds to the prayers of His people. Be a powerful, silent witness and stand for the unborn. Show Moms and Dads that people do care about them and about their babies. No child should ever be led to slaughter for ANY reason. Most certainly all babies of abortion-minded women deserve to have someone who will plead for their life and mourn for them when that life is taken. Take a stand. We could shut down the abortion industry quickly if more people who shrug their shoulders and say they can’t do anything about it would show up at the mills and be present physically-—praying and ministering to the lost. The reason this holocaust continues in this nation is because of the lukewarmness of the church. God’s people need to STAND.

By the way, the first picture you posted is our group here in SW Ohio.

Today’s email from Shawn Carney:

I just got a note from a 40 Days for Life volunteer who
was overwhelmed with joy. The message read, “I’m doing
a praise dance right now!”

The reason? Another life spared from abortion!

Anyone who knows me, especially my poor wife, knows that
I can’t dance. But with 178 lives saved — that we know
of — during this 40 Days for Life campaign, I may have
to take lessons.

We do give the praise and glory to God for these lives.

In fact, here are a few stories of babies who almost
didn’t make it through the weekend but will now have
life — Praise God indeed!


Two churches teamed up recently to pray and stand vigil
outside the only abortion clinic in Lexington.

“Usually, there are from 5 to 9 abortions on Thursdays,”
said Jayne in Lexington. “But for some reason, there
were none on that day! The only person there the whole
day was the office manager. We thank and praise God for
his many blessings and we thank everyone who came to
spend time in prayer.”


“What an encouraging day,” said Marcia in Virginia
Beach. “Another couple chose life for their child!”

A man and woman drove into the Planned Parenthood lot —
right past people praying at the 40 Days for Life vigil.
One person held a sign with the phone number of the local
pregnancy resource center.

But the couple never even got out of the car. Instead,
they got on the phone — and then turned around and left.

As they exited the driveway, they pointed to the sign —
and said they were going to the pro-life center because
they had decided to keep their baby.

“Praise God!” said Marcia.

A woman and her husband had an appointment for an
abortion one morning, but upon seeing the 40 Days for
Life prayer volunteers, the woman began to cry.

A counselor spent a lot of time talking with them and
referred them to a pregnancy resource center. Another
volunteer got a follow-up call from the woman, and she
confirmed that although she faces a number of health
problems, she has decided to keep her baby.

Please keep her in your prayers.

“Our prayerful presence outside Everett Planned
Parenthood,” notes one 40 Days for Life team member,
“was critical.”


“Please keep up the prayers to close the Planned
Parenthood in Plattsburgh,” said Nancy. “By the looks
of the numbers of customers going in, they are losing
business. God IS hearing our prayers!”

“A recently-divorced mother had scheduled an appointment
with Planned Parenthood to obtain an abortion,” said
Fred in Mobile.

“A long-time sidewalk counselor spoke with her and
persuaded her to cross the street and visit with the
Christian volunteers at the Women’s Resource Center.
She stayed in contact with them and confirmed today
that she will keep her child,” he said.

“Thanks be to God!”


“I know the prayers are having an enormous effect on
those working at the abortion center,” said the director
of a pregnancy help and education facility near the
abortion center.

“On a Friday, no abortions took place, no abortionist
entered their clinic — which never happens,” she said.

“I don’t know what is going on, but I trust God and
know that the evil one is not happy with our presence.
Keep praying!”
