Day 1 of the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil, and Already One Abortion Worker Has Quit!

Shawn Carney-President 40 Days for Life : Sep 26, 2018 : 40 Days for Life

"PRAISE GOD. Our prayers are having an effect!" -Andrea 40 Days campaigner

40 Days for Life starts TODAY in a record 415 cities, and we already have our first report of an abortion worker converting and leaving her job! (More on this in a moment.) (Photo: via

But first, a mother in your community might be scheduling an abortion as you read this message. Thankfully, you're not helpless.

We can pray, we can fast, and we can stand vigil. Find the closest vigil location at

Former abortion workers report that when there is someone praying in front of an abortion facility, the "no-show" rate for abortion appointments can go to as high as 75 percent!

It's always easy to make an excuse not to go out and pray at your local vigil. We counted down the five worst excuses to not pray at your local 40 Days for Life vigil on this episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Former Abortion Worker #178

Volunteers at one 40 Days for Life location didn't make any excuses to stay home from their local vigil. In fact, they decided to hit the sidewalk a week and a half before the campaign began.

Their efforts paid off.

"Found out this past Saturday that an abortion worker just quit!" said Andrea, who participates in a 40 Days for Life campaign in the eastern United States. (We don't reveal the locations of workers who leave their jobs to protect them from reprisals from their former employers.)

That makes 178 abortion workers to leave their jobs since the first nationally coordinated 40 Days for Life campaign launched in 2007.

"PRAISE GOD," Andrea continued. "Our prayers are having an effect!"

Downers Grove, Illinois

A year ago, 40 Days for Life campaign participants in Downers Grove, Illinois encountered a group of rowdy protesters who sought to discourage them as they prayed for abortion-bound mothers and babies in their community.

The protesters created such a circus that even abortion supporters asked them to leave. As is typically the case, the effort to protest peaceful prayer fizzed.

But the 40 Days for Life team presses forward. The Downers Grove kickoff event filled the public right-of-way and featured words from a local priest, the executive director of Illinois Right to Life and a pro-life musician.

Scripture and Prayer:
Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast ... Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, Your people." -Joel 2:15-17

Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth.
