We wanted to point your attention to two events happening today and Thursday to mark the mid-point of the 40 Days for Life. 40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.
The 40 Days of Life fall campaign ends on November 3.
