40 Days for Life: Want to End Abortion? If You Do, the First Thing You Must Do is Pray.

The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day prayer vigil  
outside a single abortion center.

Warminster, PA

The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40-day campaign 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.

Prayer is at the center of 40 Days for Life. During each campaign, we call on people of faith across the nation. . . and around the world. . . to fall on their knees before the Lord, asking Him to hear our plea and heal our land. Pray outside an abortion facility. Pray at church. Pray at work. Pray in the car. Pray at home with your family. 

We are also being asked to fast during these 40 days. This is a powerful means of drawing closer to God by blocking out distractions. Fast from certain foods. Fast from television. Fast from apathy. Fast from whatever it is that separates you from God. We believe that when God’s people fast with a broken, repentant and contrite spirit, our Heavenly Father will hear from heaven and heal our lives, our churches, our communities, our nation and our world.  

Each day during 40 Days for Life, individuals, churches, families and groups will be asked to join together in prayer for a specific request so the entire Body of Christ can unite around a common focus. These specific prayer requests will seek God’s help for:
  • Women who are at risk of having an abortion
  • Innocent children who are at risk of perishing
  • Men and women who carry the pain of a past abortion experience
  • Workers at Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion centers
  • Local, regional, and national leaders
  • Revival and renewal in our churches
  • Repentance and healing throughout our nation

 One 40 Days for Life location in Bucks County, will take place at:  
Planned Parenthood, 610 Louis Drive, Warminster, PA 18974 
Churches will be assigned a date to participate in prayer vigils between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM from Wednesday, September 24th through Sunday, November 2nd. Participants are asked to sign-up for one hour of prayer.
