Thursday of the First Week of Lent

Return to the Lent calendar.

Lent Quotable

Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.
— Socrates

Fast from one meal today.

Pray for people in your local community who have to struggle for a meal.

Give the cost of that meal — at least $5 — to your FastPrayGive Bowl. (Your FastPrayGive Bowl is a container you 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.
Today’s Prize is: a copy of The Art of Fasting
