Prayer Letter for Germany - March 2019

Dear intercessors,


Lent ("Time for fasting" in German) = Meeting with God 


From March 6th to April 20th is the period in church tradition called Lent - 40 days (not counting Sundays). It is a time to remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert in preparation for his ministry (Matthew 4:1-2) and the 40 days that Moses spent on Mount Sinai receiving instructions from God including the ten commandments (Exodus 24:18). These were times of an intimate encounter with God for a specific purpose, in a place with none of the everyday distractions (such as food in the case of Jesus and Moses). 


Fasting from food is not easy for everyone, but denying ourselves of things that distract us from building an intimate relationship with God is an important concept to consider carefully at this time of Lent. Let us spend time with him this month in prayer for our fallen world and (for example) use the time we spend on social media and television very wisely to list specific current events in the news for which we can pray in faith for the restoration and reconciliation with God that we so earnestly desire for our countries.


And thank you for also praying for Germany!
