DR. ALVEDA KING
NIECE OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
“40 Days for Life brings 2 Chronicles 7:14 into 21st century focus. As one human race, we become united in prayer.
Glory to God!”
The founders of the 40 Days for Life movement may not have been thinking specifically of the Old Testament Book of Chronicles, but the call of God to his people in the passage Dr. King refers to is exactly what the 40 Days is all about:
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
At 40 Days for Life we pray that God will heal our land, changing the hearts of those involved in the abortion industry, forgiving and bringing peace to those who have had abortions, bringing hope to those who are contemplating abortion, and forgiving all of us for all ways that we have failed in building a culture of life that respects and nourishes life, and asking Him to give us strength and show us the way.
We’ve passed the half-way point in our vigil. Please, If you haven’t come yet, you still have two weeks. The final day is Palm Sunday, March 29.
The Rockland 40 Days for Life takes place every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley. It is peaceful and prayerful. It continues overnight from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel of St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville.
