Since the first campaign in 2007, 40 Days for Life has held 4,535 total campaigns in 675 cities in 40 countries. Over 725,000 people have participated in these campaigns representing, among other organizations, 19,000 churches. The results have been impressive with 12,668 lives saved from abortion. In addition, 143 abortion workers have quit their jobs, and 83 abortion facilities have closed.
The leader of Colorado Springs' campaign, Michele Mason, has organized every campaign in Colorado Springs since 2008. Over the years more than 500 people have prayed and fasted resulting in over 20 lives saved from abortion. When asked why people take part, Michele said, "Most people who participate in a 40 Days for Life effort do it to save children and help mothers and fathers. They don't realize that God gives them the added benefit of profoundly changing their spiritual lives."
So if you want your prayers to make a real difference this Lent, I invite you to join me on the sidewalk. For more information or to sign up go to https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/colorado-springs/
