Friends in Christ,

40 Days for Life continues the prayerful tradition started in 2007, mobilizing people of faith and conscience now in hundreds of cities across the United States, Canada and the world. On Wednesday, February 13, the prayer campaign will begin in Edmonton and in 260 other cities around the world!

We sincerely thank you for standing with us for these babies who are created in God’s image and who are very worthy of our time!

Our community will unite with cities across Canada and around the world for a massive, coordinated, pro-life mobilization. This campaign is an effort to bring together people of all faiths to pray for an end to the loss of pre-born human life and for the healing of those affected by abortion. We are praying that, with God’s help, this groundbreaking effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in Edmonton — and 550,000 others throughout the world.

While all aspects of 40 Days for Life are crucial in our effort to end abortion, the most visible component is the peaceful prayer vigil outside the local abortion facility (Women’s Health Options). The vigil is peaceful, participants agree to a Code of Conduct with a pledge that they will conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner. You can help make a life-saving impact by signing up for at least one one-hour block of time.

**NEW** Following feedback from severalparticipants, this Campaign we are trying something new… We are dedicating 2 hours each day for a concentrated group prayer effort. Between the hours of 4-6 PM each day, we are hoping to draw out a crowd to share the pro-life message with everyone passing by during the very busy rush hour on 124th Street. Also thisis a great opportunity to share the pro-life message with the clinic staff who exit during this time. So please come out and pray between 7-7 anytime. But keep the “group prayer time slot” in mind as well!  Everyone is welcome!

If you and your church would like to be part of the Spring 2013 40 Days for Life prayer vigil there are flyers, handouts and other information we can send to you. Our banners and hand held signs will be stored on site as they were last Fall, please feel free to use them while you pray. We will also be hosting a warm-up station with chairs, hand-warmers and heater and prayer resources.

Friends, we are looking forward to joining you in prayer once again during this Lenten Campaign!

John 3:6 Flesh gives birth to flesh.

See you February 13th!

God Bless!
