Hopefully each of you will or have joined me in this 40 Day Prayer Journey which started March 1. Step into this forty (40) day prayer journey and adventure of repenting and praying toward the desires and promises of God to enable us to grow in our spiritual walk. Let each of us as individuals and as a corporate body grow in grace, in service and deed, in love for God and each other and into a lifestyle of individual and corporate prayer. Know that you won’t be praying alone on this 40 Day Prayer Journey. God is orchestrating this corporate prayer of which YOU are an important part.

United prayer can bring powerful results. Pray with purpose, biblical promise and passion. Let’s all continue with one accord in prayer and supplication (Acts 1:14a) during this Lenten season.

Scripture makes prayer a priority of the church. The Lord said “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples”. (Isaiah 56:7 RSV). Below Days 4 through 7 are provided: They are short and you can do a day at a time .

Love and pray fervently,
Linda Fegins, The Prayer Leader
