31 Day March Challenge - starting March 1 - Don't Just Say, Do

Prayer is a means to direct our minds to things we need to focus upon, on things we may need clarity in discerning, and as a starting point for taking action. Prayer without action is just words. Kind of like what the book of James talks about when it says, "faith without works is dead."

The 31 day Challenge this month leads us directly to Easter so this period is to be one that really challenges us in praying and taking action.

Each day after you pray whether it is in praise of God, asking for something, or praying for someone else try asking yourself: "what I will do today to help make that prayer a reality?" or "how can I be part of God's work in this situation?"

Ready to challenge yourself?

Sometimes it is hard to find time to pray or to make time. So let's challenge ourselves in the month of November. Everyday for 30 days let us pray for our neighbors who live around us. Maybe we know our neighbors or maybe we don't but that doesn't mean we can't pray for peace in their lives, or that they might know God's love.

Nov 1 - Nov 30th

Possible things to pray for

- Health for our neighbors

-Peace for our neighbors

-Joy for our neighbors

-Contentment for our neighbors

-Love for our neighbors

-Energy to good works for our neighbors

-Good relationships for our neighbors
