05 / 02 / 2010 - Precious Life bring global 40 Days For Life Campaign to Northern Ireland
Precious Life is gearing up for a campaign of '40 Days of Prayer and Fasting' in an effort to stop the abortion threats to Northern Ireland.
Communities in Northern Ireland will join with hundreds of cities in the United States, Canada in Australia that are hosting 40 Days for Life events from 17 February 17 to 28 March, 2010.
The 40 Days for Life Campaign was started in 2004 by a pro-life group in Texas. Over the following years it spread across the USA and Canada. This year, two cities in Northern Ireland and one in Australia are also taking part.
Director of Precious Life, Bernadette Smyth said, "This Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday, communities across Ireland and Britain will be uniting with hundreds of cities in the USA, Canada and Australia for the largest simultaneous pro-life mobilisation in history - The 40 Days for Life Campaign. We will be praying and fasting for the protection of Ireland from abortion and the repeal of the 1967 Abortion Act in Britain."
She added, "During the 40 Day Campaign, Precious Life will also encourage more people to join Prayer Vigils outside abortion facilities. Here in Northern Ireland, we are urging people to join our daily vigils outside the Family Planning Association's (FPA) abortion referral agencies in Belfast and Derry."
US 40 Days for Life spring campaign director Shawn Carney said the enthusiasm for the upcoming campaign is growing across the country and around the world.
"The campaign dates of February 17 through March 28 coincide with the Christian season of Lent. "It's a perfect match," said Carney. "Lent is a season of prayer, fasting, repentance and renewal. It is our prayer that the efforts of the thousands of people who will participate in 40 Days for Life in their home towns will touch hearts and minds, save lives - and show that extreme pro-abortion policies do not resonate with the values of this nation."
The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 days of prayer, fasting, and community outreach. For more information and your FREE Prayer Pack please contact Precious Life
