The success of 40 Days for Life depends on the most powerful form of advertising in the world -- word of mouth. Tell all of your friends, family members, co-workers, and fellow believers about 40 Days for Life. Encourage them to visit this web site where they can learn more and get involved.

4. Find your role

Please contact us at to explore opportunities to assist in the following areas:

  • Prayer and fasting
  • Peaceful vigil
  • Community outreach

Prayerfully discern how God is calling you to help.

We are looking for the following:

  • Pastors, priests, and other church leaders to lead hours of prayer.
  • Prayer Vigil "Shift leaders" - We need several people to volunteer to be shift leaders for blocks of time to assist the Vigil Coordinator.
  • Community Outreach- we need volunteers to join the team to go to door gathering signatures to pledge to join us in Prayer and Fasting to end abortion.

5. Participate in the peaceful vigil

While all aspects of 40 Days for Life are crucial in our effort to end abortion, the most visible component is the peaceful prayer vigil outside the local abortion facility.

You can help make a life-saving impact by joining our local vigil at:

Family Planning Associates
2500 H St.
Bakersfield, CA 93301

(Located at the corner of 25th and H Streets, right across from the LifeHouse pro-life pregnancy help center.)

The vigil is peaceful; participants sign a "Statement of Peace" with a pledge that they will conduct themselves in a Christian manner. All people are welcome!

Please contact us at or 661-323-2229 to learn more.
