Fasting for Clean Water
“and if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.” Matthew 10:42 (NLT)
This year for Lent, WPC has chosen to partner with:
LIBERIA MISSION OUTREACH INTERNATIONAL AND OUR FRIEND, HENRY PEABODY
He is working to transform families in Lofa County, Liberia, physically and spiritually in Jesus’ name with clean, safe water, by helping to build wells for the residents. We invite you to help him accomplish this by prayer, fasting and charity during this Lenten season. Join us by giving something up during Lent and contributing its monetary equivalent toward our fast for clean water. If contributing by check, you can simply write “Water” in the memo line of your check. There will be envelopes labeled “Water” outside the sanctuary which you can use for cash contributions. Your contributions may be placed in the offering baskets during or at the close of Lent. Thank you! Thank you, Missions
Lenten Fast Prayer
Pray for people to discover the Source of living water. “I was once a person of little faith,” says Memory Handenda, a mother in the Twachiyanda community in southern Zambia. “But after my prayers, and this water came out, then I became a person of a lot of faith. We believed that, indeed, God exists.” We rejoice with Memory, but many people still live without faith and hope. We are grateful to You, Lord, for being our Source of living water — the One who satisfies our soul’s deepest desire with the joy of salvation. Thank You for strengthening Memory’s faith by answering her prayers. Show all of us that faith doesn’t come from answered prayers, but rather from the “confidence in what we hope for” (Hebrews 11:1). Open people’s eyes to recognize You as the only Source of living water for their parched souls. Let them be refreshed in Your love when they enjoy clean water to drink. “… My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.” —Psalm 63:1 (NASB
