Vision and Mission

40 Days for Life is a national pro-life campaign with a vision to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 days of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion.

Intercessory Prayer: Conception to Natural Death

For a growing love of each human person
from conception to natural death;
We pray to the Lord

That the life of every human person,
from conception to natural death,
might be enshrined and protected in our laws;
We pray to the Lord

For a growing love of God's little ones,
in the womb, in the nursing home or at death's door.
That we might love with the love of Jesus;
We pray to the Lord
