Chaldeans4Life 40 Days of Prayer Vigil Kick-Off
By Sam Yousif :: Tuesday, September 23, 2008 :: 104582 Views :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle, Government & Society

Michigan, USA – The Church of Transfiguration in Southfield, formerly St. Michaels hosts the Southfield 40 Days for Life kick-off campaign.  The 40Days for life team invites the public to join the prayer effort as the prayer group gathers at 6:45 p.m. today, Tuesday, September 24th to help put an end to abortion. 

From September 24 - November 2, our community will be one of more than 170 cities in 45 states joining together for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history -- the 40 Days for Life campaign.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:

40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of peaceful vigil, and 40 days of community outreach.  Chaldeans4Life help lead the effort in the Chaldean community.  Group leaders say the are praying that, with God's help, their groundbreaking effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city -- and throughout America.

Chaldeans interested in becoming part of the growing movement are encouraged to take a stand for life. 

While all aspects of 40 Days for Life are crucial in our effort to end abortion, the most visible component is the peaceful prayer vigil outside the local abortion facility. You can help make a life-saving impact by joining our local vigil out front of the:

WomanCare Abortion Facility
28505 Southfield Rd.
Southfield, MI 48076

Located 1/4 mile south of 12 Mile Rd on the West side of street.

There are a number of new names on the list of pro-life leaders who've graciously offered kind words about 40 Days for Life. The comments come both from well-known names in pro-life circles as well as emerging leaders who bring new perspectives to this important work.
