"40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities … and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ’s resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge."
Charlottesville typically participates in the fall campaign for 40 Days for Life, if you are interested in learning more please contact them at [email protected].

There is a weekly prayer vigil year round every Friday morning at Planned Parenthood and Wednesday evenings at the Women's Health clinic on Commonwealth Drive. Prayer vigils are powerful in many ways: Asking God's help to save lives, being visible and sharing our message of the sacredness of life to anyone passing by and maybe saving a life. More prayer partners are greatly needed.
