 40 Days For Life

Join Christians around the world in a massive effort to end abortion called 40 Days For Life.  For 40 days – September 23 through November 1 – we will:

  • Pray and Fast for an end to abortion:  Pray outside an abortion facility.  Pray at church.  Pray at work.  Pray in the car.  Pray at home with your family.  People of faith are also invited to fast throughout 40 Days For Life.  Christ said there are demons that can only be driven out by prayer and fasting.  Fast from certain foods.  Fast from television.  Fast from apathy and indifference.  Fast from whatever it is that separates you from God.
  • Pray for at least 1 hour in the field across the street from Planned Parenthood (3051 East New York Street, Aurora).  Our peaceful prayer vigil will run from 7am – 7pm every day.  Even if you signed up at church, please sign up officially at
  • Learn more and spread the word!  Invite at least one person to come with you to pray at Planned Parenthood.  Visit and share our Facebook page:

For more information, please contact Linda Wish at 630-901-5020.
