Archives 40 Days for Life begins March 6

Feb. 27, 2019

Plattsburgh – “On March 6, the highly successful 40 Days for Life campaign returns to Plattsburgh with 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil and community outreach,” said Nancy Belzile, who is coordinating the local campaign. “We pray that these efforts will help mark the beginning of the end of abortion in Plattsburgh,”
40 Days for Life is a peaceful, highly-focused, non-denominational initiative that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history.

“We know 40 Days for Life has made a difference here,” Belzile said. “Our volunteers have made extraordinary sacrifices to expose the abortion industry and to protect children and their mothers from abortion.”

The campaign will feature a peaceful 40-day prayer vigil in the public right-of-way outside Planned Parenthood of the North Country, located at 66 Brinkerhoff Street. All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times.

“40 Days for Life has generated proven life-saving results since its beginning in 2004 in Bryan/College Station, Texas,” said Shawn Carney, president of 40 Days for Life. “During 23 previous coordinated campaigns, 816 communities have participated in this effort. More than 750,000 people – representing some 19,000 churches – have committed to pray and fast. And we know of at least 15,256 unborn children whose lives were spared from abortion during 40 Days for Life campaigns.”

A kickoff blessing is scheduled for March 6th at 10 a.m. at the vigil site.
