40 Days for Life — Week 1


The 40 Days for Life has been going on for one week now in 253 locations across America and overseas.

The purpose of the 40 Days for Life campaign is to pray to end abortion. But how? Those people you see down by Route 59 — what exactly are they praying for?

In the coming weeks, we will highlight some of the specific daily intentions suggested by the 40 Days for Life organizers. This one is authored by Rev. Rob Schenck, President, Faith and Action.

Intention: We pray for a renewal of our zeal to offer generous help to the unborn and their families.

Prayer:  God, forgive us when we try to explain away the obligation we have to help others who need help. Enable us to not devalue them because they are in the circumstance that they are in, but to see them for what they are, those, who like us, were formed by your hand in their mother’s womb. Amen.

Can you help carry the message? You never know whose heart you may touch as they drive by. Or whose life you may save, because someone remembers a sign they once saw on the side of the road.  

Only one hour  each week for the next 5 weeks to witness in public and pray for an end to abortion.

We are on public property from 9 am until 6 pm on Perlman Drive, in Spring Valley, and from 6 pm until 9 am at the St. Gregory Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel on 21 Cinder Road in Garnerville.

God Bless You!  For more information, click here.
