ProLifeCorner- Aurora Illinois- by Staff- 40 days for Life Aurora and Beyond-
It is time once again for the 40 days for life campaign. God hears our prayers no matter where we are located. At home, in church, no matter where we are at, however there is something special about offering your prayers at an abortion clinic where the babies are being sacrificed. Not only does our Lord pay special attention to your prayers but your presence at an abortion clinic can often give an abortion minded mother the moral strength that she needs in order to choose life.
What is 40 days for life ?
40 Days for Life campaigns are managed by local volunteers in each of the cities involved in the effort. A 40 Days for Life campaign consists of 40 days of prayer and fasting combined with vigils in shifts outside of a clinic or hospital that performs abortions. With enough volunteers, this protest may be round-the-clock. A small national office coordinates communications and provides training and other resources for the local volunteers. The organization states their efforts have prevented 8,973 abortions since 2007, leading to the closure of 54 abortion clinics.
