The Beginning of Lent


Now, typically I don’t observe Lent. I grew up with an evangelical background so the churches we attended throughout my life never taught us about Lent or did anything to observe it. I’m sure I learned about it in some class but never really put much thought into it as I grew up.

As I’ve expanded my horizons in my adult years I’ve met several people who share similar religious beliefs as I do but they also observe Lent. Case in point, my friend Christopher uses Lent as a time to daily ask people for if he can pray for them and uses it as a time to center himself.

My prayer life has been a bit rocky these last few weeks because my routine is off (though I know that is no excuse and that prayer shouldn’t be just routine – but hang with me). So, I’d like to take Christopher’s idea and do the same – offer every day to pray for people and/or take prayer requests. I’ll then dedicate time each day to spending it in prayer.

I, however, will not be giving up meat on Friday. 🙂

So, if you have a prayer request – please reach out to me and let me know! I would be honored to pray for you.

Who else is taking the 28 Day Challenge?

I had a challenge presented to me on January 31 by my friend Sean to blog every day in February to help form the habit of writing on a consistent basis. I took him up on the challenge and will be writing every day in February.
