OTTAWA, ON, August 11, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – On September 23rd, Ottawa area pro-life advocates will join together with people of faith and conscience from many other communities from coast to coast to kick off the area’s own version of the groundbreaking 40 Days for Life campaign.40 Days for Life is an intensive pro-life initiative that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and 40 days of grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history where God brought about world-changing transformation in 40-day periods.
“As people here in Ottawa join with others from across the country to pray and fast and take courageous action for 40 days to end the tragic violence of abortion, we look forward to seeing what kind of transformation God will bring about in our city and throughout Canada,” said local 40 Days for Life spokesman Nicole Campbell….
I am going to be involved in some capacity in promoting and helping to mobilize for the March for Life in 2009. The 40 Days for Life Campaign is going to be one of the events that commence 40 days before May 14, 2009, the 40th anniversary of the legalization of abortion in Canada.
I hope and pray for big things between now and next May.
