Around the world ... in 40 Days?
When 40 Days for Life first began with one hour of prayer in Texas, we never imagined that it would spread from that community to 440 cities across all 50 American states and 13 other countries -- but it has!
From Canada, Australia, Spain, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Poland, Belize, England, Germany, Argentina, Denmark, Armenia -- to the formerly Soviet occupied country of Georgia -- 40 Days for Life is spreading around the globe.
(Please pray for the many courageous people in other countries who are actively considering applying by the July 31 deadline to bring 40 Days for Life to their cities this fall!)
Today I want to focus on the BREAKTHROUGH that is happening in Australia.
Seven Australian cities have already conducted 40 Days for Life campaigns ... and now, a nationwide coalition of religious, family and pro-life leaders has united with a goal to expand 40 Days for Life to dozens of new locations across Australia over the coming months.
The next Australia National Day of Prayer is going to focus around that specific goal, calling Australians to pray, fast, and work for a "Life Breakthrough."
Sounds like "40 G'Days for Life" to me!
In a few weeks, these groups and leaders are flying David Bereit and his family to Australia for a whirlwind working and speaking tour all across the country to recruit, motivate and equip thousands of people to expand 40 Days for Life coast to coast.
