Lent: 40 Day Prayer Challenge

  • St. Peter's Edina (Underground Room) 5421 France Avenue South Edina, MN, 55410 United States (map)

This has the potential to be the most significant forty days of your life! Why? Because prayer is the difference between the best you can do and the best God can do. When we pray, God starts fighting our battles for us! Discover faith-building stories of God’s answers to prayer, daily scriptures and prayer prompts, that will inspire you to pray and keep praying like never before.

First, don’t take the challenge by yourself.
Invite your missional small group, church members, friends and family to take the challenge with you. Then circle each other in prayer for forty days! 

Second, commit yourself to forty days.
You’ll have some ups and downs, no doubt. But keep circling “Jericho” like the Israelites did. The goal of this challenge isn’t prayer. It’s “praying through.” So even if you get discouraged, keep on keeping on. 

Finally, the ultimate goal is to get to know God better.
Prayer isn’t about outlining your agenda to God. It’s about getting into God’s word and God’s presence and letting Him outline His agenda to you. God might just surprise you over the next forty days.
