40 Days for Life


Why we pray…..Since 2009, abortions in the State of Virginia have dropped by over 12,000 a year! Children’s lives are saved every single day. You are invited to join us from September 25 through November 3 for 40 Days for Life – 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion. You’re also invited to stand and to pray peacefully during a 40-day vigil in the public right-of-way outside the Planned Parenthood at 201 N. Hamilton Street, Richmond, VA, 23221, for one or more hours during the 40-day prayer vigil, and to help spread the word about this important community outreach. When people come to pray, the number of “no shows” for abortion appointments can be over 50%. If you’d like more information – and especially if you’d like to volunteer to help, please contact: Ann Niermeyer, 804-714-5170, pray4dads40days@gmail.com All are welcome!
