FaithSpring’s 40-day Prayer Challenge for Lent
Day 1: Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017
Pray for God to open your heart, mind, and ears during Lent.
Lent is the 40-day preparation for Easter. Beginning today and continuing for the next six weeks, Christians across the world will make personal sacrifices to God, demonstrating appreciation for the sacrifice that God made for the world through Jesus Christ. The journey is helpful and meaningful for those who decide to take it, and... it will also be filled with many blessings along the way. This year, FaithSpring Church embarks on a 40-Day Prayer Challenge for the Lenten Season. The Prayer Challenge is simple: Pray 5 minutes every day and include the daily topic in the prayers.
On the first day of the Challenge, the prayer topic is this: Ask God to open your heart, mind, and ears during this Lenten Season, allowing God to work in new and insightful ways. This may not seem like much of a challenge, but before we can expect big blessings, we must commit ourselves to allow God plenty of opportunities to work within us. God doesn’t need our permission to do great things, but if we can become willing and dedicated people, we will have a much greater chance of experiencing a successful Lent.
How will God’s love and grace be revealed to you between now and Easter? Begin today by observing Lent. Open your heart, mind, and ears to listen to God during this Lenten Season. Take the 40-Day Prayer Challenge and see for yourself what God will do through intentional and committed prayer.
“Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises…Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (James 5:13 & 16, NLT)
