We encourage everyone to join their community’s National Day of Prayer!
Prayer is so powerful, especially when we are praying together as a body of Christ! Sometimes we forget that we can talk to God at any time and any day. Our human tendency is to think we can do it on our own. But we can’t!
We need the power of Jesus in our lives and we can access this power when we pray to Him and pray in His powerful and mighty name!
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:24

What is Lent?
Lent is recognized as the 40 days before Easter, the time we celebrate when Jesus was resurrected from the dead and raised to life. The tomb stone was rolled away and Jesus’ body was NOT found – He had Risen! – Amen! (Mark 16:4-6)
Why 40 Days?
40 Days is a remembrance of Jesus’ time in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights being tempted by Satan. After Jesus’ resurrection, He walked the earth for 40 days encouraging the disciples. This disputed any doubts that He did indeed conquer death.
How Can We Apply it to Our Lives?
We don’t have to go 40 days and 40 nights without eating but we can give up something or chose a purposeful uplifting and spiritual activity so that we can share the love of Jesus with those around us. We have put together a weekly calendar of activities for the next 40 days to prepare our hearts for Easter.
