Lent began about a week ago.
Most Evangelical churches don’t typically observe Lent, as it is a part of the liturgical church calendar, so if you’re not familiar with it, Lent is a period of fasting and prayer that many Christian observe for several weeks before Easter.
While fasting should be a regular practice for committed followers of Jesus, there’s nothing in the New Testament that commands us to fast and pray in certain ways or at certain times.
However, many find this time of year, in the weeks before Easter, to be a good time to add new spiritual disciplines.
If that describes you, I encourage you to check out our Eurasia Northwest Prayer Challenge. This month, we’ve been talking to you about the needs in Eurasia Northwest, and the opportunities available to you to come and be a part of what we’re doing there.
Even if you can’t physically come to Eurasia Northwest, you can make a difference for the kingdom there through your fervent prayers. The prayer challenge helps by providing accountability in the form of a daily email reminder, and different suggestions each day for how to pray.
If you sign up today, the 31-day challenge will take you right up to Good Friday.
I can’t think of a better way to honor Jesus’ sacrifice and his love for the world than by praying for people who still need to hear the Good News.
You can sign up for the challenge right here.
Thanks for your prayers for Eurasia Northwest, and thanks for being a part of this community. We couldn’t do this without you.
