I’m on the road again today, after speaking at 40 Days
for Life kickoff events in Jacksonville and Pensacola,
Florida. The campaign officially starts TOMORROW ...
so NOW is the time for us all to make a decision.
40 Days for Life is merely an invitation. This campaign
cannot happen without a response to that invitation from
people like you. And that leaves just one question:
What will God do over these next 40 days in your
community ... and will you be part of it?
It is our hope that you will join hundreds of thousands
of others who have taken this journey of prayer and
fasting ... peaceful vigil ... and community outreach.
There are 261 locations in all, so please follow this
link and get involved in the closest campaign:
Thousands of abortions are scheduled across the nation
and around the world — tomorrow ... and the next
day ... and the next. There is something we all can
do. We can pray and stand vigil.
Over these past few weeks, our local leaders have been
filling schedules with volunteers who will be a witness
to hope on the sidewalks.
Will you join them?
These prayer vigils work ... as seen in Aurora,
Illinois, where an ex-Planned Parenthood employee
spoke — and a baby was saved — all at a 40 Days
for Life kickoff event!
The local leaders in Aurora said they were “amazed
and humbled” at their kickoff rally on a very chilly
morning as they listened to one particular guest
share her testimony — former Planned Parenthood
manager Ramona Trevino!
Ramona had a change of heart and quit her job at a
Planned Parenthood facility in Texas after a single
40 Days for Life campaign was held outside of her
office just two years ago!
They couldn’t have asked for a better start. During
the event, one of the sidewalk counselors told the
group that a woman they had spoken to had decided
not to go into the abortion center after all.
She had changed her mind!
“We will only triumph over the evil of abortion by
changing hearts,” said one of the volunteers, “which
we can only do by a loving, peaceful approach.”

The abortion industry is responding aggressively to
the threat to their profits. The vigil in Tempe will
be held outside a Planned Parenthood facility that
has increased its hours of operation by 40% ... and
has apparently added additional abortion days to its
“Now is the time to bring a cloud of witness,” said
Lisa in Tempe. “We need to lift up our prayers and
put all our trust in Jesus.” If more people stand
witness, others will see this display of faith —
and they in turn will join the vigil as well.
“I pray that God will call you to take at least one
hour for each week of this campaign,” she said. “One
hour, once a week, for 40 days can save lives ...
Can you spare an hour to pray in front of a Planned Parenthood or other abortion facility during the 40 Days for Life that starts tomorrow on Ash Wednesday?
