A Record-Setting 40 Days for Life! Join Now!


The annual 40 Days for Life campaign launches simultaneously in all 50 states for the first time ever on September 28! That means nearly half of the abortion centers operating in the United States will be surrounded with prayer during that time!

40 Days for Life events are not protests; they focus on prayer. Since 2007, hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans have committed to the Biblically-significant 40 days of prayer, fasting, peaceful vigil, and community outreach to draw attention to the evil of abortion. That number is increasing each year and illustrates growing pro-life sentiment among Americans, especially in younger generations.

The 40 Days for Life movement lays claim to dramatic life-saving fruits over the last 10 years:

  • Nearly 12,000 babies’ lives have been saved;
  • 133 abortion workers have quit their jobs (Abby Johnson’s And Then There Were None ministry does a beautiful job of reaching out to workers like these with encouragement, love, and resources.);
  • 75 abortion centers have closed.

It’s not too late to be a part of this year’s campaign, which runs from September 28 to November 6 in a record-breaking 342 cities and 24 nations (at last count). Vigils are scheduled for at least five cities in North Carolina, including Asheville, Charlotte, Fayetteville, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem.
