As we start a new week, let’s rejoice at the good that God has done! So far, there have been 112 babies saved from abortion — that we know of — during this 40 Days for Life campaign!

And that means that since 40 Days for Life began as a coordinated campaign five years ago, there have now been, through God’s grace, MORE THAN 6,000 LIVES SAVED!

Read on for just a few of those babies’ stories.

I’m boarding a plane to visit the 40 Days for Life campaign in Rockland County, New York — and later tonight, I’m speaking at a pregnancy center event.

This location is a great example of collaboration because the pregnancy resource center is across the street from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility and they work closely with the 40 Days for Life volunteers to help women find loving alternatives.

This is the second location for 40 Days for Life in Rockland County — the first abortion facility CLOSED after a 40 Days for Life campaign a few years back!

Praying in front of an abortion center makes a difference — in New York or anywhere else. Like most people, I was a bit fearful the first time I did it. But that fear is no match for the peace and hope that prayer brings to what seems like a hopeless situation.

If you have never done it, now is the time! But don’t take my word for it — here are some personal prayer experiences that vigil participants shared on the 40 Days for Life blog.

We always like to start Monday mornings with good news … and on the first Monday of this campaign, there’s actually GREAT news!

So far since last Wednesday when the campaign started,
we have reports of 51 babies saved … that we know of!

Abortions on a Sunday? Even on the Lord’s Day, there are abortionists open for business. As hard as that may seem to believe, it’s true.

Your prayers are needed so women don’t make a mistake that will cost their babies their lives — and will perhaps affect them in ways they can’t even imagine for years to come.

But even for those who have made that mistake, there is eternal hope. Here are a couple of stories of hurt … and healing.

The media.

Yes, I know a lot of people shudder when they hear those words. At the national level, there is often disdain for Christianity and everything Christians do. At the local level, however, it’s often a different story.

40 Days for Life campaigns are finding local news organizations are willing to listen … and our local leaders have done a great job during this first week of the campaign to take full advantage.

Even when the the media doesn’t agree with us, they’re still providing a huge platform and enabling local leaders to spread the word about 40 Days for Life throughout the communities they serve.

See for yourself!

As we begin this 40-day journey of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil, and community outreach, imagine what God can do through YOU … in YOUR city.

In a NEW kickoff video, David Bereit — our national director — shares a touching (and rarely told) story that shows the powerful impact one person can make.

In the video, you’ll learn about one person — who was personally affected by abortion — who helped to launch the entire 40 Days for Life worldwide movement … and you’ll hear David share an inspiring account of the baby he met this weekend whose life was spared through one person participating in 40 Days for Life.

Make time to watch this video — you’ll be glad you did!
