Join us for a season of prayer and repentance as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection.
Week of April 4–April 10
Prayer Focus: As we reflect on the last hours of Jesus’ suffering and death, and remember the suffering during the crisis, let’s join Jesus in praying from Psalm 22, beginning with the cry of lament and ending with a declaration of praise. Let’s give thanks for the incredible grace and mercy of God demonstrated by Jesus on the cross. And let’s commit to forgive as we’ve been forgiven, sharing the love and mercy of God.
