40 Days

Day 1

Verse for the Day

Put on sackcloth, you priests, and mourn; wail, you who minister before the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you who minister before my God; for the grain offerings and drink offerings are withheld from the house of your God.

 

Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly; Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.

-Joel 1:13-14

 

Quote for the Day

“God delights in revealing Himself to those who are bold enough to bother Him”

-Unknown

 

Word for the Day

Lent begins on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 — also known as Ash Wednesday. Lent is 40 days long, not including Sundays (that means the season is technically 46 days long). The fact that it's 40 days has significance. The number 40 has always had special spiritual significance regarding preparation ... most importantly, Jesus fasted and prayed for 40 days and 40 nights in the desert before He began His public ministry (Matthew 4:2).

 

During these 40 days, I want to encourage you to know that God hears your cry and will honor your participation through a time of repentance, reflection, refining, releasing and restoration.

 

Fasting & Prayer is not magic. God forbid. It is a spiritual discipline designed to create greater intimacy and fellowship with God. We could all stop and observe a moment of sober reflection on our life and what direction we are going in.

 

 

Prayer for the Day

 

While fasting with the body,

let us also fast in spirit.

Let us lose every bond of sin ;

let us undo the knots of every contact made by violence;

let us tear up all unjust agreements;

let us give bread to the hungry

and welcome to our house

the poor who have no roof to cover them,

that we may receive mercy from Christ our God.

In His name we pray, Amen
