This past Wednesday was the start of the season we call Lent. It's a time of preparing our hearts for Easter, and it's a good time to make a change in your life. As Ann Voskamp put it, "Lent isn’t about forfeiting as much as it’s about formation." This Lent season (and hopefully the days, weeks and months following), I want to spend more time in prayer, and I'd like to invite you to be a part of it.
Sundays on Wild Olive will (at least until Easter) be prayer posts. Please feel free to leave a comment with any prayer requests you have, and if I have any, I'll post them here as well.
And then we'll pray.
I'll be praying for each comment that comes through, and I hope you'll do the same. This is a opportunity for joining together and presenting our requests, our hopes, our praises, even our confessions before God.
Request #1: I've been dealing with a minor eye issue, and tomorrow afternoon it's being corrected. I'm thankful to have it fixed, but nervous about the procedure. Please pray for me to remain calm.
Request #2: Saturday we are having a "Countdown to Easter" gathering at church. Please pray that families will come and be blessed!
