Join us in 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting against Abortion
Dear Friend of Precious Life,
Northern Ireland is facing one of its darkest hours. Abortion could be legalised as early as February 2017 if Alliance Party MLA David Ford's abortion bill is passed by the Northern Ireland Assembly. This bill, which began its passage through the Assembly on Tuesday 6th December, is seeking to allow the killing of babies with life-limiting disabilities at any time during pregnancy, right up to the moment of birth!
In order to stop this evil we need a massive revolution of prayer and sacrifice. This is why I want to start 2017 with 40 Days for Life. As Jesus tells us, some evil can only be overcome by prayer and fasting (Matthew 17:21). Prayer is the sword of the spirit. The course of human events can only change by placing our hands together in prayer. We must pray if there is to be hope for the future, for the battle is not with human beings but with the spiritual powers of evil (Eph. 6:13). Throughout the Holy Scriptures we can see how God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities, and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to the disciples after Christ’s resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40 day challenge. Our 40 Days for Life to protect Ireland from the scourge of abortion will begin on Tuesday 3rd January and conclude on Saturday 11th February.
You can participate by joining me in praying and fasting for the protection of Ireland from the scourge of abortion every day during the 40 Days. Fasting is not a Christian diet; it is a form of physical prayer. You can fast from food, TV, alcohol, cigarettes, sweets, chocolate, etc. You can also make a donation to the work of Precious Life.
You can also get involved in our “Personhood begins at Conception” lobby campaign. We launched this vital campaign to defend our pro-life laws and to ensure that every person, from the moment of conception, continues to be protected in Northern Ireland.
You can help in this campaign by:
• Signing a Petition Postcard to the First & Deputy First Ministers
• Distributing Campaign Leaflets and Postcards in your Community
• Lobbying your Assembly Members
• Making a Donation to the Campaign
With faith, we look forward to seeing the transformations that God will bring about to protect Ireland from the scourge of abortion.
In the Most Holy Name of Jesus, we pray that Ireland is saved from the sin and crime of abortion.
