From March 9 - April 17, our community will be one of many joining together for the 40 Days for Life;  
1. Pray and fast
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 ... anything that separates you from God.
Each day between now and the end of the campaign, please commit to pray and fast for the nationwide effort, and for the efforts here in our city.
