Heavenly Father, you are the Creator and we are all your children. Make us truly one. Protect us from the division in families, in communities, in the Church and in the world.
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Savior who died for us and saved us. Now as your disciples, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in you throughout the world. May we be worthy witnesses. Show us the way to self-denial, embrace of the cross, and following you. Raise among us true servant leaders who have a passion for souls.
Holy Spirit, you are the agent of evangelization who sends us to engage in spiritual warfare. Equip us with the armor of God and weapons of righteousness. Help us to preserve unity in the Spirit through the bond of peace. May we stand together as your holy warriors.
Triune God, you are three Persons in one God. In you we have one baptism, one faith, one hope. We are one body. Help us to truly become united in mind and heart, in vision and mission, to be one with the Father through the Son and in the Spirit.
Mama Mary, you are our beloved Mother. We are your offspring who strive to keep God's commands, bear witness to Jesus, and wage war in the Spirit against the enemy. Cover us with your mantle of protection, keeping us in your loving embrace always.
We as the people of God live by the Spirit and not by the flesh. “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires.” (v.24). We are to avoid the works of the flesh. “Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like.” (v.19-21a).
December 12, 2016 (C-Fam) – With his job still on the line, the newly appointed UN independent expert for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights laid out a provocative agenda for his 3-year term a couple weeks ago. “This mandate will cover every country under the sun and under the moon,” Thai Professor Vitit Muntarbhorn is reported to have said, further antagonizing countries that have already promised not to cooperate with him.
Join the next internationally coordinated campaign to save lives, this coming Fall from September 24 - Nov 2, 2014! This fall there will be hundreds of communities in North America, including many Canadian cities, simultaneously hosting a 40 Days For Life campaign from September 24 - November 2, 2014. These campaigns produce tremendous fruits. In many Canadian cities, dozens of babies have been saved from abortion. If you wish to join the next 40 Days For Life in your community, please contact your local campaign coordinator (below) and find out how you can sign up as a vigil volunteer. Please consider becoming a prayer volunteer by donating at least 1 hour of prayer and fasting in front of the local abortion facility. If you are part of a church community, perhaps your pastor would like to "Adopt a day"? Click on the city links below to contact local coordinators and to register online for the vigil schedule

The fruits of 40 Days For Life and its history in Canada
After witnessing tremendous success by the 40 Days For Life program in the United States, Campaign Life Coalition brought it into Canada for the first time in 2007, holding our nation's first 40 day vigils in Ottawa, ON and Halifax, NS. Since then, CLC and other pro-life groups have organized 40 Days For Life campaigns more than 20 cities across Canada. Some cities run the campaign twice a year (Spring & Fall). Other cities run them only once annually.
Since 2007, 3039 individual campaigns have taken place in 539 cities across the world and 625,000 people have joined together in this historic display of unity, prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.
40 Days For Life has succeeded in shutting down 54 abortion facilities, and has documented saving at least 8,973 babies. In addition to the babies, 101 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry and thousands of women have been spared the suffering and trauma that comes with the decision to abort one's own child.
