40 Days for Life, 1/29/21 Prayer Vigil, Pray for Roe v Wade
Council: 114 - BANGOR
The National March for Life is an annual event in Washington, DC, designed to pray for all those affected by the notorious Roe v Wade decision of 1973, that legalized abortion in all 50 states. This year’s event, scheduled for January 29th, 2021, was pared down from the tens of thousands who normally march, to the leaders of several individual Pro-Life organizations, because of security concerns. Individual organizations organized virtual participation or separate “marching events.” The national 40 Days for Life organization normally holds two 40-day prayer vigils, in Feb-March and Sept-Oct-Nov, but, this year, because of the dramatic paring down of the National March for Life, they called for nationwide, one-day prayer vigils on 1/29/21, at all the locations (outside abortion facilities) where 40-Day Prayer Vigils are normally held. In Bangor, we put out the word to traditional 40 Day Prayer Partners and through our Pine Cone Council 114 email list…and we were able to schedule a continuous prayer vigil (in a blustery snow storm) from 7:00AM to 4:00 PM! Our dedicated Prayer Angels prayed publicly, all day, and waved signs and hands at all the passers-by, proclaiming our support for life, from conception to natural death! One motorist went to buy coffee and donuts for us. Almost everyone who drove by gave us thumbs-up, happy honks, or waved support. We were visible examples of the National March for Life 2021 THEME: TOGETHER STRONG: LIFE UNITES!
