Deacon John,

Through the first few days of this 40 Days for Life campaign, our local leaders report …

26 babies (and their moms) spared from abortion – that we know of!

Praise God!

There’s more to rejoice about as well, as I’ve just returned from a visit to New Mexico, where volunteers are celebrating the closure of an abortion center in Las Cruces where five prayerful 40 Days for Life vigils were held.

They’ve now moved their vigil to a different abortion facility, this one in the city of Santa Teresa, with their prayers that the Lord will close this business as well.

In this short video, you’ll meet Mark Cavaliere, who’s led the 40 Days for Life efforts in both of these cities.


Mark tells the story of a heartfelt, urgent community response to the arrival of abortion in their city … and how prayer to God made the difference. You’ll also learn how Mark fills his vigil hours auction-style.

Believe me, you won’t want to miss this video!

“What an encouraging day!” said a 40 Days for Life team member. The abortionist didn’t show up at Planned Parenthood … and a woman who came for an initial appointment chose life for her baby … [more]


Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.

—Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

O God, we too often try to live in ways that ignore our coming death. We forget that our days are numbered by You, that at the end of our days your judgment awaits, that You are the Lord of our destiny. Help us to repent daily, and then to live each day in joyful obedience. Lead us to live in the light and promise of eternity. Prepare us to live fully and sacrificially.
