As we have done the past few years, we are participating in the season of Lent with 40 days of prayer and fasting from February 14th through March 31st. Lent is an excellent opportunity to increase our awareness of God's presence in our lives, repent of areas of unbelief in our hearts, evaluate our commitment to Christ, reflect on God's sacrificial love, and even prepare to celebrate Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. We invite all of you to join us in the following ways:
- Fast from something in your life (a particular food, entertainment, social media, etc.). Think about something that would be sacrificial to deny yourself. The goal is to remind us of our need for God more than these things while identifying with Christ's suffering in a small way.
- Sign up to receive daily scripture readings and prayer focuses via text message. This year you will be receiving devotional thoughts from different people at Point. Sign up to receive these by texting LENT to 512.982.9580. You can also follow along with the daily readings here: http://pointaustin.org/lent-readings/
- Participate in corporate prayer gatherings.
- Increase your fasting and prayer during Holy Week leading up to our Good Friday service on March 30th at 6:30 PM. .
