40 Days for Life Fall Campaign 2017

Published by: Gary Merritt On: 09/13/2017 Under: Culture of Life (167 Hits)      

Our nation -- and our world -- need prayer.

In just a few days, we will enter the largest 40 Days for Life Campaign ever -- in 375 cities!

No one grows up wanting an abortion ... and your presence offers hope for women who feel they have no other option.

Even if you "see" no results, your prayers are there in solidarity with those baby boys and baby girls who are losing their lives just a short distance away from where you stand.

Though the world would stand ready to abandon these children, your prayers guarantee that they are not alone and not forgotten at that moment.

There is no peace inside of an abortion facility.

The abortion industry survives on the despair of secularism, which claims we can do whatever we want to whomever we want. Without God, we can place our will over others and appoint ourselves as the judge of their value.

That is the topic of the newest 40 Days for Life podcast episode, which discusses the power of prayer and the sterility of secularism:




We also break down the recent claim from Iceland that they've "eradicated" Down syndrome. Of course, all they have done is abort those who have it.

There are consequences to secularism ... but there are also consequences to prayer!

From September 27 to November 5, use your rights to give the joyful, silent witness of the love of Christ at otherwise despairing places.
