PRAYER & FASTING
Christ told us some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. The two go hand in hand. Prayer
keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps us reach
beyond our own limitations with God’s help. Each day during 40 Days for Life, individuals, churches, families and groups will be asked to join together in prayer for a specific request so the entire Body of Christ can unite around a common focus.
People of faith are also invited to fast throughout 40 Days for Life. We believe that when God’s people fast with a broken, repentant and contrite spirit, our heavenly Father will hear from heaven and heal our
lives, our churches, our communities, our nation, and our world.
The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil
outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility in your community.
It is a peaceful and educational presence. Those who are called to stand witness during this 24-hour-a-day
presence send a powerful message to the community about the tragic reality of abortion. It also serves as a
call to repentance for those who work at the abortion center and those who patronize the facility.
See the flyers in the Church for more information about how to pray at the abortion clinics are in our area.
