Prayer Partners for Lent

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021.
For our church, Lent is a special time for prayer.
Paul writes in I Timothy 2:8, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people.” Praying for others in our congregation strengthens our bonds and lifts us up as we pray.

During Lent we have the opportunity to be matched with a Secret Prayer Partner, possibly someone we know, or someone we have never talked to or don’t even recognize.
We will share enough information about who you’re praying for so you can personalize your prayers for them and any encouraging cards or notes you might want to send.
Praying for another person is a way to support each other and lift each other up as we walk through the season of Lent, looking toward the Cross and the Resurrection!

Sign up below to be a Prayer Partner no later than FRIDAY, February 12.
Optionally, you can include specific prayer requests and/or your cell phone number to receive text messages from your Prayer Partner.
You will be notified with your Partner's name and prayer requests before Ash Wednesday, February 17.

We have scheduled a “reveal” for the Sunday after Easter, April 11, during Discipleship Hour at 10:45 am (via Zoom) to find out who has been praying for us and discuss our Lenten journeys.

Contact Cheryl Jurrus for more information.

General Description:

Prayer Partners for Lent is a program where people who wish to participate are given the name of another participant to pray for during the season of Lent.

It is a wonderful opportunity to connect with someone else in our congregation in a new way. It can make your own spiritual journey through Lent a special time for prayer, and can be a very meaningful experience.

Look for opportunities to sign up for Prayer Partners a few weeks before Ash Wednesday.
You will be randomly assigned a Prayer Partner and their name will be available on the Sunday before Ash Wednesday.
Pray for your Partner during Lent.
You know who you are praying for, but you do not know who is praying for you.
Prayer Partners gather together following Easter and have the opportunity to share their experiences.

For more information, contact the church office or a Faith Community Nurse.
