Another successful 40 Days for Life campaign concludes in Indianapolis
For 40 days, from February 14 to March 25, faithful, steadfast pro-life advocates from across central Indiana braved the cold, snow and wind to pray for an end to abortion. As part of the National 40 Days for Life prayer campaign, these witnesses joined with over 750,000 people in 715 cities across the globe.
The 40 Days for Life campaign in Indianapolis was sponsored by Great Lakes Gabriel Project. More than 70 churches signed up for prayer shifts, and campaign coordinators Debra Minott and Sheryl Dye sent emails, texts, and made phone calls to ensure that the entire 40 Days was covered in a blanket of prayer.
While we will never know the complete impact that this campaign has had on the Indianapolis area, some success stories show the impact of the 40 Days for Life campaigns. One day, a young man stopped to tell the sidewalk counselor that his girlfriend had changed her mind and that they were not going through with their scheduled abortion. “I’m a believer in Jesus and I just can’t do it.”
In addition to stories like this, the recent 40 Days for Life campaign drew countless new volunteers into the pro-life movement. Many of those who set aside an hour to pray for an end of abortion were new faces not only to 40 Days for Life, but to the pro-life movement. They will hopefully continue to pray at future 40 Days for Life campaigns as well as volunteer their time to talent to the pro-life movement as a whole.
40 Days for Life will continue with their fall campaign, beginning September 26 and ending November 4, 2018.
