As America marks the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision this year, abortion has become the leading cause of death in our nation and worldwide, ending the lives of more than 42 million children each year and harming millions of women – and men.
In the midst of this global crisis, there is new hope.
Beginning with one hour of prayer in Texas in 2004, the groundbreaking 40 Days for Life movement of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils, and community outreach has mobilized more than half a million volunteers in 481 cities around the world. 6,749 babies have been spared from abortion. 75 abortion workers have had a change of heart and quit their jobs. 25 abortion centers have closed. And every baby, every changed heart, every closure is an amazing story.
This book contains forty of those stories:
• Hearts changed on the most controversial issue in our culture
• Babies and mothers spared from abortion at the last possible second
• Shocking secrets from inside the abortion industry – revealed
• Abortion workers experiencing a change of heart and quitting their jobs
• Thriving abortion facilities shutting down for good
“If you are growing weary over the increasing level of disrespect of the most innocent among us, open this book, read these encouraging stories of lives saved ad redeemed, and help let the light out!”
– Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family
“These are incredibly beautiful stories — brief, crisply told, illuminating, heart-rending. Reading one a day does wonders for one’s sense of human beauty and God’s power. The power of prayer is breathtaking. Whole abortion clinics close, directors begin to reflect and to walk out, faces in grief and despair about abortions to be inflicted within them turn to faces of gratitude, and joy, and thanksgiving — often after a writhing inward struggle, in which they first see that someone stands with them, prays with them, hopes with them.” – Michael Novak, Author, Journalist, Diplomat, winner of 1994 Templeton Prize
“You must read 40 Days for Life! You will be inspired, and your faith will be renewed that ordinary people, like us, through the power of prayer, can save lives.”
– Margaret H. Hartshorn, Ph.D., President, Heartbeat International
“40 Days for Life is one of the most impressive initiatives launched since Roe v. Wade. It’s a powerful combination of prayer and persuasion, aimed above all at serving women in crisis pregnancies and helping rebuild a culture of life. The forty stories told here are stories of America at its best.”
