Q: What is the 1:22 Campaign?
A: The 1:22 Campaign is an invitation to pray for and petition for an end to unjust abortion laws. Every day at 1:22pm, Campaign participants are asked to spend one minute in prayer for the unborn, an end to unjust abortion laws, and for wisdom and guidance for our lawmakers or others, including those in the medical profession or those in ministry, that they might have the courage to stand up and speak out against abortion.
Q: How did the Campaign get its name?
A: 1:22 stands for the date-January 22, or 1/22-in 1973 that the United States Supreme Court passed Roe v. Wade. Fittingly, participants are then asked to pray at 1:22pm to commemorate the innocent lives of those who were lost as a result of that January 22 decision.
Q: Why pray for just one minute?
A: One minute, or sixty seconds, represents one second for every million unborn lives that have been lost-60 million-since the passing of Roe v. Wade in 1973. While participants are certainly invited to pray more, we believe that there’s power even in short, daily prayers that ask for an end to abortion.
Q: Do I need to sign up to be a part of the 1:22 Campaign?
