Prayer Journals: 40 Days of Prayer

During the season of Lent, our congregation participates in 40 days of prayer. A prayer journal is provided to the congregation and includes personal prayers, along with a place for you to name specific prayer requests for First Pres, yourself, your family, or others. Our Prayer Journal is loosely modeled after the Pittsburgh Experiment to enable "people to open their lives to God so He can make Himself known. It also serves as a tool of discipline and focus in seeking God's guidance and direction." In each journal you will find an explanation of the steps to follow, the significance of 40 days, and how to pray, along with several different types of fasting to follow over the 40 day period. Previous years' journals are available to download below.
