SPOTLIGHT: 40 Days for Life – Providing Hope, Opportunity, and Light

Written by David E. Smith

The adage is true – actions do speak louder than words. Catherine Walker, co-leader of 40 Days for Life Aurora, explains to Monte Larrick that the simple act of taking part in a peaceful prayer vigil outside of an abortion facility can have a profound impact on the lives of women and their unborn babies. Ms. Walker provides helpful information about participating in a local vigil and she relates how lives have been changed through the prayerful presence of pro-life believers.

After the break, Catherine speaks to the power of sharing our stories as she shares her own post-abortive story of healing and redemption in Christ. Monte and Catherine discuss the involvement of pastors and churches in the pro-life movement and the importance of voting for pro-life candidates at all levels of government. The podcast concludes with information about a new initiative, 40 Days for Life 365, that will begin on November 4th.
