Please join the fall 40 Days for Life Campaign of prayer & fasting, peaceful vigil, and community outreach from Sept. 25 – Nov 3 as we continue to pray for changed hearts, saved lives, and an end to abortion in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
Your help is needed to ensure that at least two people are present and praying every hour in front of the West Chester Planned Parenthood, covering 12 hours each day from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM for the entire 40 days.
You can sign up for vigil hours through your church or pro-life organization, and if your church or parish does not currently sponsor a day(s) of coverage contact me for more information on how you can make this happen. In addition, you may sign up for hours now by logging into our local campaign site by clicking here.
As an opening event there will be a showing of “Amazing Grace” on Sunday, September 29th at 2:00 pm, at 1 Fellowship Drive, Glen Mills, PA. (map) This film portrays the inspiring story of William Wilberforce’s lifelong battle to end the British slave trade. May we likewise be encouraged to persevere in our efforts and not give up hope that the inhumane practice of killing innocent human life will one day be made both illegal and unthinkable.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you you have any additional needs or questions regarding the fall campaign, and/or if you would like yard signs, printable promo flyers, vigil sign-up and Statement of Peace sheets.
Looking forward to joining you in prayer as we stand together for the unborn.
40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that 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. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
- Prayer and fasting
- Constant vigil
- Community outreach
The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities … and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ’s resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge.
