Historically Christians have given things up during Lent to focus on the Lord. The most enduring of these practices is giving up meat on Fridays, hence the origin of the Friday night fish fry (which probably hasn’t done a whole lot for our spiritual lives). Let’s try something better this year and do something Better Than Fish on Friday during Lent.
FRIDAY CHALLENGE: World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome you to join in prayer and action for peace and justice and is celebrated annually in over 170 countries on the first Friday in March. The challenge for this Friday, March 5th, is to pray for:
- Extreme Tour
- Compassion International
- Operation Christmas Child
- Ken and Karol Christie (missionaries we’ve supported through this congregation for many years)
- All missions/missionaries that that we have supported in the past.
