Tomorrow, 25th of September marks the beginning of the daily vigil of prayer, fasting and outreach for the 40 Days for Life. 40 Days for Life vigils will begin in 306 cities from coast to coast in North America — and in eight other countries around the world.40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:
-40 days of prayer and fasting for an end of abortion
-40 days of peaceful vigil
-40 days of community outreach
The latest closure of the abortion clinic in Midlands, Texas, USA, brings the number of closed abortion facilities — where 40 Days for Life prayer vigils have been held to 40!
For the next forty days, individuals and community outreach groups will gather near the abortion mill here on Bank Street, Ottawa to pray and give peaceful witness to the dignity of life. St. Paul’s Students for Life will also join in this event.
The Scripture passage that sums up the spirit of 40 Days for Life is 2 Chronicles 7:14 — “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
