Dear Prayer Partners,

Imagine you’re in the desert with Jesus facing the temptations he faced. Which would be hardest to say “No” to: immediate gratification, test God’s power to work on your behalf, or having others bow down to you because of your power and position? Whatever the temptation, Lent gives us six weeks to establish new spiritual habits and practices for life after Lent. Pray for light from God’s Spirit to help you use God’s grace to improve your spiritual life and care and service for others. A humble heart the Lord will hear!
