COVID-19 NOTICE: 40 Days for Life vigils throughout the world have been cancelled due to the Corona Virus outbreak. We invite you to continue praying for an end to abortion by praying at home. In New Zealand, abortion sits under the umbrella of “health care” and is regarded as an essential service. In this crisis, your prayers for pregnant mothers, fathers, babies and abortion workers are needed more than ever!
Today, somewhere in your city, a woman is taking a pregnancy test which will show two pink lines, confirming that yes, she is pregnant.
For this woman, the circumstances of her life in this very moment mean she despairs and immediately contemplates abortion. Some time in the next week or two, she is going to turn up at the local abortion centre to have an abortion.
Will you be there to offer her hope? Will you be there to be a sign of love and joy and mercy in the one place she least expects it?
Join us in Lent 2020 for New Zealand’s sixth 40 Days for Life vigil and be that sign of hope and help save lives!
Click the cities above to be taken to the official 40 Days for Life website where you can sign up for your hours online. Alternatively, scroll down for contact details for leaders in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and register your interest directly with them.
Please tell the organiser of your local 40 Days for Life vigil
the day(s) and time(s) you will stand in peaceful, prayerful witness.
This helps the team plan, ensuring that every hour is covered and no prayer volunteer stands alone.

40 Days for Life works! It offers hope and saves lives!
In New Zealand Family Life International NZ sponsors 40 Days for Life vigils in Auckland and Wellington during Lent as part of our ongoing mission to end abortion and build a culture of life and love through prayer, education and service. The vigils are peaceful and prayerful.
Other individuals and groups, independent of FLI, may also facilitate a 40 Days for Life vigil in different locations in New Zealand. These vigils will be advertised on this page alongside the FLI sponsored vigils when they occur.
