As America marks the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision this year, abortion has become the leading cause of death in our nation and worldwide, ending the lives of more than 42 million children each year and harming millions of women – and men.
In the midst of this global crisis, there is new hope.
Beginning with one hour of prayer in Texas in 2004, the groundbreaking 40 Days for Life movement of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils, and community outreach has mobilized more than half a million volunteers in 481 cities around the world. 6,749 babies have been spared from abortion. 75 abortion workers have had a change of heart and quit their jobs. 25 abortion centers have closed. And every baby, every changed heart, every closure is an amazing story.
This book contains forty of those stories:
Prepare for a 40-day journey like no other where you will discover how God can use you to change hearts and save lives.
Limited quantities available.

This book is a look into the results of the campaign that went nationwide in 2007, and now is international. The stories of babies given a chance to live and parents given hope for providing for their children are miraculous. God definitely has a hand in this work, and is calling us to join Him in saving this culture from death.

Mr. Bereit and Mr. Carney have captured the essence of the 40 Days for Life campaigns and the power of prayer that emanates from them. You will be touched and blessed in the reading of this book. May God bless them as they press on in this vital work, and may we respond in kind to the call to prayer and service.

"40 DAYS FOR LIFE DISCOVER WHAT GOD HAS DONE...IMAGINE WHAT HE CAN DO" aptly describes the amazing stories of lives saved from death and destruction--as well as lives transformed by joining God in what He is doing. It's exciting to see God answering our prayers so powerfully and in ways we simply could not have imagined.

40 Days for Life is nearly impossible to read only one day at a time! It's serious, humorous and real all at the same time. The Scripture throughout the book is very well utilized. It gives hope to ending the tragedy of abortion one humble prayer at a time.

I have tried to read this book, one chapter per day, during 40 days of Lent, but found it hard to put it down. I am amazed at so many moving stories of faithful, courageous, heroic, generous people involved in the fight against the evil of abortion.
