Friday of the Second Week of Lent

Lent Quotable

It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal.
— Helen Keller

Fast from any unnecessary talking. If your day is filled with idle chatter (both verbal and electronic), try to speak only when necessary and only about significant things.

Pray for 15 minutes in purposeful silence, trying to quiet your mind and listen to how God might be speaking to you in your life.

Give a small donation or help to a group that has no voice. Alternatively, drop $2 in your FastPrayGive Bowl. (Your FastPrayGive Bowl is a container you’ve set aside to hold the money saved from various fasting challenges, to be used for whatever charity you choose at the end of Lent.)

Slipped up? Don’t give up. Start again and share your
struggles at our “Slip Support Station” on Facebook.
