Prayer & Fasting
Prayer and Fasting
Prayer is the foundation of every 40 Days for Life campaign. Prayer keeps us humble and united. Without prayer, your campaign is a mere protest. Prayer has eternal implications and is always effective. Effective pro-lifers stay close to prayer and persevere with the peace of Christ.
Why pray at abortion facilities?
It is where abortions take place.
You can be the last sign of hope before a woman has an abortion.
It can be the first sign of mercy after a woman has an abortion.
We are called to be missionaries for life.
Abortionists report up to a 75% no-show rate when a prayer vigil is taking place outside the abortion facility.
Why do we fast?
Some demons can only be cast out through both prayer and fasting. Fasting detaches us from what we are attached to so we can focus on prayer and God.
Examples of fasting:
Food, types of food (e.g. meats, sweets) and drinks (e.g. coffee, alcohol)
Turn down the temperature on your shower
Media and social media
Anything that is separating you from God.
Prayer is the foundation of every 40 Days for Life campaign.
