1. Prayer and Fasting
Christ told us that some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. The two go hand in hand. Prayer keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps us reach beyond our own limitations with God’s help. Fasting is not a Christian diet; it is a form of physical prayer. You can fast from food, TV, alcohol, or anything that will challenge you to stay focused on prayer and loving sacrifice for the unborn.
2. Peaceful Vigil
Our mission is to end abortion peacefully and prayerfully. We must bear witness for those who cannot speak for themselves by creating a public image that is peaceful in order to demonstrate our Christian values and our faithful commitment to help the unborn. The vigil of 40 days is a powerful witness to the dignity of every human life. View our St. Louis Vigil Calendar here and our Fairview Heights Vigil Calendar here
