A peaceful, pro-life prayer vigil began in Sacramento on Wednesday, March 5th, and will continue until April 13th. International sponsor and organizer of the event, 40 Days for Life, is a focused pro-life campaign with a "vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigils to end abortion. The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion."
The focus of this year’s prayer vigil will once again be the Women’s Health Specialists abortion clinic, located at 1442 Ethan Way in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento. Participants gather not only to pray, but to also respectfully distribute literature in support of human life. Trained sidewalk counselors also look for opportunities to lovingly share a message regarding the sanctify of pre-born human life with anyone willing to listen. Those interested in participating can choose any hour from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday to gather for prayer. Other promotional activities, such as a pro-life concert in Auburn today, are also planned. In addition, positive, pro-life messages will be shared throughout Sacramento during the campaign, raising support for and an awareness of the sanctity of all human life from the moment of conception onward.
