From Sunday, March 6, through Friday, April 15, we are asking our church family to unite in prayer, asking for the Lord’s will to be done in our lives, in our families, in our church, in our community, in our country, and around the world.
These 40 days of prayer will culminate with a special time of prayer and reflection upon the work of Christ on the cross during our Good Friday service on April 15 at 7:00 pm in the Worship Center.
We invite you to read over the selected Scripture passages in this prayer guide and to consider certain questions as you use the prayer prompts provided for each passage.
