From Wednesday, February 22, through Sunday, April 1, 40-day campaigns of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil and community outreach will be held in 258 cities all across the United States (44 states and the District of Columbia) plus Canada, Australia, England, Ireland and Spain! Twenty of these locations are launching their first ever 40 Days for Life campaigns.

We conducted the first 40 Days for Life campaign in College Station, Texas, back in 2004. If you had told us then that 40 Days for Life would spread around the globe we wouldn’t have believed it. We thought there would be one — and only one — 40 Days for Life campaign. Ever. Thankfully, God’s plans were bigger than ours and 40 Days for Life has now been conducted in hundreds of cities and towns across all 50 American states — and thirteen other countries.
As we prepare our hearts for this campaign, there is already some big news to celebrate. Since the last 40 Days for Life campaign ended, four more abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have been conducted have shut their doors and closed! And a fifth is scheduled to lock its doors forever on March 1! This will make twenty-one abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have occurred that have shut down. To God be the glory!
If you’ve not taken part in 40 Days for Life before, I hope this shows you what can happen when you put your trust in God and step forward in faith. Find the 40 Days for Life campaign nearest you and learn how you can help make a life-saving difference in your own community. If nothing else, please click here for daily devotionals and pray and fast with us this Lent for an end to abortion and a greater respect for all human life.
