40 Days For Life


40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
Prayer and fasting
Constant vigil
Community outreach
40 Days for Life takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion in America.

Join the NATIONAL LIFE CHAIN! http://www.lifechain.net/

LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life Americans standing for one hour praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception.

2:00-3:30 p.m.Burlington

Meet at 2 pm at Salvation Army’s Park Shelter (behind Aldi’s on Agency St.) for corporate prayer and to get a sign. From 2:30-3:30 pm, we’ll stand on the sidewalk along Agency Street (east to Roosevelt and west till across from Hy-Vee)

We’ll pray in silence, being careful not to block the sidewalk for walkers, or to block access to any driveways for businesses.

Proverbs 31:8-9

Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all the unfortunate. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.
