40 Days for Life

Mar 6, 2019 to Apr 13, 2019 - from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM - Bilingual (English and Spanish)

Join us for the 40 DAYS FOR LIFE peaceful campaign  to pray for an end of abortion and to change hearts and minds of everyone associated with the abortion industry.  Come with your church or on your own anytime between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

Please visit for details

Our peaceful presence there makes a difference: We offer prayers, hope and life affirming choices!

Show more >>


40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:

  • Prayer and fasting
  • Constant vigil
  • Community outreach

The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities … and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain 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.  

We will stand across Eve's Medical Center, 8603 S. Dixie Hwy, Miami FL 33143 on the right of way on 68th Court.  Parking is available on rooftop of shopping center.   

Please visit for details of attending groups and churches. Join them or come on your own or with friends anytime between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
