Life Chain Take TwoThousands of pro-lifers will stand on sidewalks, and stand up for the unborn, this weekend.

Sunday is National Life Chain, which is held every year on the first Sunday of October.

Life Chain is a sidewalk prayer ministry where pastors are encouraged to lead their congregation to a designated sidewalk location and share pro-life messages.

"There we stand solemnly, prayerfully, in order to witness to the public but also to permit God to witness to us," says Royce Dunn, director of Life Chain. "In that regard, Life Chain relies very heavily on the pastors. We say Life Chain is church-oriented and pastor-focused, and who can doubt our urgent need for prayer today when we see our culture collapsing around us."

Last year, 1,548 municipalities joined the annual event which began in two small California towns in 1987.

Information and free prep materials are available at NationalLifeChain.org.
