40 Days of Prayer and Fasting for Life

The 40 Days for Life is universal and is a pro-life campaign that was begun in 2004 by a local group in Bryan-College Station, Texas, led by David Bereit. The campaign is active in the Autumn and Spring of each year, though local campaigns may continue it year-round.

The Autumn 2010 campaign launched in 238 locations around the world, including the United States, Canada, Australia, England, Northern Ireland, and Denmark.

The 40 days concept comes from a pattern repeated in the Bible, such as in Noah's Ark, Moses's 40 days on Mount Sinai, and Jesus's 40 days in the desert.

The Pro Life group Precious Life organise the 40 Days for Life here in Ireland.
