40 Days For Life returns to Jacksonville

Trudy Perez-Poveda who is the spokeswoman for our local Family of God Pro-life group asked me to share the following with the community here in Jacksonville.

This Fall, from September 22 – October 31, Jacksonville is uniting with hundreds of other cities around the world for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history: the 40 Days for Life campaign. Recognizing that “with God all things are possible”, people of faith are praying that this effort will help bring an end to the tragedy of abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has already mobilized over 350, 000 people worldwide, saved more than 2,800 lives from abortion, led to the conversion of 38 abortion workers, and seen five abortion facilities close. 40 Days for Life is made up of three components:

Prayer and Fasting: believers are invited to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion

Peaceful Vigil: stand for life during a 40-day peaceful public witness outside A Jacksonville Women’s Health Center, 4131 University Blvd. S., 32216

Community Outreach: help take a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, advocacy, and public visibility
