40 Days of Prayer? Bring It On

Here’s one for the annals of creative protest: Six Rivers Planned Parenthood of Eureka, California is having “40 Days of Prayer” hosted by “Clergy for Choice” (see details) in response to the nationwide success of the “40 Days for Life” campaigns (about which more here).

Pro-lifers on Twitter & Facebook have expressed dismay at this effort. I say bring it on. Prayer in my experience is a powerful and unpredictable phenomenon. The results are not always what the petitioner intends. And if the California event gets some pro-lifers indignant enough to get involved in the next 40 Days for Life campaign, so much the better.
