The Prayer Line is a radio prayer ministry that airs weekday mornings, 7:30-7:45 with me on 1350 WLOU, The Gospel Music Station.
In observance of Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent, join us for our first 12-hour fast from 6A-6P or 6P-6A (if you work overnight).
In Western Christianity, Lent is 40 days of fasting and repentance in preparation for Resurrection Sunday (Easter), this year on April 12th.
The six Sundays in Lent are not counted among the 40 days of lent as each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter," a celebration of Jesus' victory over sin and death.If, for medical reasons, you cannot participate in a full or partial food fast, then consider giving up something very important to you, (cell phone, computer, television, text messaging, caffeine, etc.) and giving that time to the Lord in prayer and Scripture meditation.
Read Esther 4:15-17, 2 Chron. 20:3-30, Neh. 9:1-37, Matt 4:1-4, Luke 2:37, Acts 13:2-3, and all passages on fasting & prayer.
It is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus saves!
