40 Days for Life
Dear Friends of Life,
Thanks to many dedicated volunteers stepping up, the 40 Days for Life is a go again this fall in Jackson and will run from September 27-November 5. Sign-ups will start this weekend at the following churches which have agreed help cover hours at the prayer vigil in front of Planned Parenthood:
-City on a Hill Church –Olivet
-New Covenant Living
-Our Lady of Fatima
-Queen of the Miraculous Medal
-St. Anthony Hillsdale
-St. Demetrius Orthodox
-St. John the Evangelist
-St. Joseph the Worker Oratory
-St. Mary Star of the Sea
-St. Stanislaus Kostka
-Spring Arbor Free Methodist
If you are member of one of these churches you can sign up through your church. If your church is not on this list, will you please consider asking you pastor if your church will participate by adopting just ONE hour a week at the prayer vigil? We would love to have any local service or prayer groups, teams, etc. who would be willing to adopt hours as well. We already have Knight’s of Columbus on board and I am sure many other groups will step up as well.
Our website is up and running and you can get more information and sign up for vigil hours there as well. Please share it! 40daysforlife.com/jackson
This is no small task- we have committed to covering 480 hours with at least two people praying each hour. Every person and every prayer is powerful. Please consider being involved in a way even larger than you have in the past. Your sacrifice for the unborn truly does make a difference. We have had over 500 individuals participate each of the last 5 years. I marvel at that and am so grateful, but at the same time I can’t help asking ‘Can we have 1000 this year?’ Please join in this good work and don’t be afraid to ask all of your friends and family members to do the same. You are not asking for yourself, but for the those most vulnerable in our society-unborn babies and women in unplanned pregnancies who think they have no choice other than abortion.
The opening prayer service will be on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood on Tuesday 9/26 at 6:30 pm. Please join us to praise the Lord and call down His blessing on this work
