2017 SPRING SESSION: March 1-April 9
40 Days uses a 3-pronged effort:
*Prayer and fasting: Christ told us that 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. Fasting is not a Christian diet; it is a form of physical prayer. You can fast from food, TV, alcohol ... anything that separates you from God.
*Constant vigil: The most visible component of 40 Days for Life is a constant prayer vigil outside A Woman's World Abortion Clinic-the Treasure Coast's only committer of abortions! It is a peaceful, prayerful, safe witness to the clinic's patients and staff, and to the entire community, that evil is in our midst and with God's help, it will be defeated. We need people to sign up for a 2hour/week time slot.
*Community outreach: During 40 Days for Life, the pro-life message is proactively taken to the community through a focused, grassroots educational effort.
