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
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.

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.
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.
