40 Days for Life 40 Days for Life is an internationally coordinated 40-day campaign that aims to end abortion locally through prayer and fasting, community outreach, and a peaceful all-day vigil in front of abortion businesses.

The 40 Days for Life campaign is a major component of Montgomery County Right to Life’s efforts. MCRTL has been a sponsor of local 40 Days efforts since 40 Days’ first campaign in 2007.  Click here for more information on our local campaign.  We know that prayer changes hearts and circumstances!   Since the first coordinated campaign through the end of 2018, local leaders in the United States and 50 other countries have reported these blessings — God’s answers to their prayers:

  • 6,428 total campaigns
  • 61 Nations
  • 1,000,000 volunteers
  • 19,000 churches
  • 16,004 lives saved from abortion
  • 191 abortion workers quit their jobs
  • 104 abortion facilities closed

This fall’s 40 days for Life campaign runs from September 25 – November 3.  MCRTL is coordinating prayer outside the Planned Parenthood facility at 4747 Louetta. We will be praying for the unborn babies, for their families, and for the clinic workers.  By God’s grace, we will have an unbroken chain of prayer with every hour from 7am-7pm filled. Please join us in praying for this.

It is not required, but if possible please sign up on the vigil calendar for the time you plan to pray.  People will not be able to view your name or information but the calendar does record how many people are scheduled for each time slot.  Signing up allows people to self-manage the vigil by adjusting their prayer times toward hours of need.

Let’s get on our knees for the sake of our community. Let’s make abortion unthinkable. We want this PP facility closed and women redirected to the many life-giving options we have in our community.

In addition to individual person sign-ups, MCRTL is praying for churches and groups to “sponsor” a day. Sponsoring a day simply means the church/group specifically works to recruit folks to pray and fill the vigil hours for that day. Individuals from outside the sponsoring group are still encouraged to come as pray as they can. The more prayer – the better!

Please email Spring40days@gmail.com if your church or group would like to sponsor a day.
