Be Ye Holy!
"But ye are a chosen general, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praise of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;" 1 Peter 2:9.
We are now in the Lenten season that began with Ash Wednesday. In Western Christianity, Lent is 40 days of fasting and repentance in preparation for Resurrection Sunday (Easter), this year on April 24th.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.
We invite you to join us in fasting and prayer for God's will to be done in our lives, families, churches, schools, communities, and in the nation. We have had some great discussions on the Jesus Saves Social Network on the Daniel Fast during Black History Month. We offer it as an option to encourage healthy eating and prevention of diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and chronic diseases that plague African Americans at alarming rates.
You might also consider giving up something very important to you for a 24-hour or 12-hour period each week, (cell phone, computer, television, text messaging, shopping, etc.) and giving that time to the Lord in prayer and Scripture meditation. Be ye holy even as God is holy! Your are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation!
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 and prayer.

Birthday Celebration for Angela Lee Price - March 16th!
Join me in a birthday celebration for my wife. March 16th is Angela's birthday. It's the BIG ONE. She is reaching a milestone in her life. She received her first letter from AARP. Needless to say, she is a little choked up over it. Help me make it a great day for her. Please stop by the network and show her some love on Wednesday, March 16th. You all mean a lot to her. It would mean so much to me and our family to have you share in this special birthday with us.
Thanks, Bill Price
