Uniting Christians, Saving Lives, Winning Souls
February 17, 2021
ORLANDO, Fla.—Lots of things can happen during the “40 Days for Life.” The annual campaign of prayer, fasting and 24-hour vigils outside abortion clinics has saved thousands of unborn children and has led to countless conversions. It has also brought together people of faith from many Christian denominations.
This year, the “40 Days for Life” begins on February 17, coinciding with Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent. The campaign ends on March 28, while Lent continues until Easter Weekend, ending on Holy Saturday (April 2), the day before Easter.
At Timothy Plan, the pioneering Biblically Responsible Investing firm whose launch in 1994 came directly as a result of Founder and President Art Ally’s pro-life activism, many of the Orlando-based company’s employees are taking part in the 40 Days for Life.
The Planned Parenthood clinic on University Boulevard in Orlando will be the focus of a 40 Days of Life vigil. Some Timothy employees have pledged to pray, while others will take part in the vigil outside the clinic.
“I’m proud of our people, who are walking the walk, not just talking the talk,” Ally said. “We are doing whatever we can to assist in the campaign.
“I can’t think of a more powerful demonstration of the power of prayer than what the Lord has done through the 40 Days for Life campaign in such a short time. God’s touch of the human heart, opened by prayer, truly reaps miracles.”
What began as a Roman Catholic, pro-life crusade has blossomed into a Christian community event spanning six continents. The very first year, 2007, Coalition for Life had campaigns in 89 cities in 33 states, which quickly built to all 50 states and then around the world as “40 Days for Life”. Cities hosting the vigils include Toronto, London, Sydney, Mexico City, Cape Town, Bogota, Moscow, and Hong Kong.
The group estimates that at least 18,000 lives have been saved because of the vigils, which are held around-the-clock at abortion clinics for the entire 40 days. In addition, 40 Days for Life reports the closing of at least 107 abortion clinics, including the one in Bryan/College Station, which now houses “40 Days for Life’s” international headquarters.
