40 Days for Life Cincinnati Update – Week 1

October 4, 2022
Contact: Mary Clark
Cincinnati Campaign Leader

We are one of 622, 40 Days for Life campaign locations this fall. The largest EVER despite some campaigns ending due to abortion being outlawed in their states!  The campaign of daily continuous 7am to 7pm prayer began last Wednesday, September 28. To start off the campaign, at least sixty people were present at our Kickoff Rally on Sunday, September 25 and were inspired to carry on that prayer by listening to Fr. Matt Cushing, pastor of All Saints Parish, Walton, Kentucky, who blessed the crowd with his talk.

The Scripture readings we chose were from Exodus and II Chronicles wherein we heard of Moses’ pleading with God to spare his people who had made and worshipped a molten calf after coming out of Egypt. Because of Moses’ prayers, God relented of His punishment. The II Chronicles 7:14 verse delineates the conditions that need to be met before God heals the land.

Father Cushing reminded us that remarkably, in these times of such evil and chaos, God chose to bring about the overturning of Roe vs. Wade! He also stated that we shouldn’t fear for what our children will face in the future, but make sure they know that they were privileged to be born at this time to carry on the cause for Life.

We encourage you to bring a friend and help us cover the many remaining open hours of prayer at Planned Parenthood, especially the earliest open hours. Sign up online at www.40daysforlife.com or call me for help. If it helps to give you a quick overview of all open hours, see my spreadsheet under the Resources list on the website entitled “For Reference – Open/Covered Hours at a Glance – Sign Up Online.”
