Pro-life prayer chain event in Fairbanks on Sunday, Oct. 4


    Fairbanks pro-life advocates are holding a Life Chain prayer gathering on Sunday, Oct. 4, to honor the millions of unborn babies whose lives have been lost to abortion. The gathering is part of a national campaign to raise awareness and pray for an end to abortion in America.

    Participants will gather between the Cushman and Barnette Street bridges in Fairbanks from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

    According to the national Life Chain website, the group aims to “unite all Christian clergy and Christian laity” and to build solidarity with various pro-life groups. Life Chains are typically held annually on the First Sunday in October. This year marks the 33rd anniversary. Last year there were approximately 2,000 Life Chains across the U.S. and Canada.

    The movement is based off the biblical passage in 2 Chronicles that states, “[if] my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. My eyes will now be open and my ears attentive to prayer from this place.”

    The group’s principles say the gatherings should be peaceful, open to families and based in prayer. Signs with pre-printed prayer topics are encouraged.
