Join us for a Prayerful Lent
Starting next week, we at Desert Stream Ministries begin an 8-part prayer/intercession series designed to prepare us for Easter.
Entitled ‘Downward Ascent,’ this series will focus each week on one of the Beatitudes (Matt. 5:1-12). We will explore the conditions of heart that free us to welcome Jesus afresh. At a time when gender and sexuality have never been more muddled, we need His clarity. Light will dawn as we apply a biblical understanding of the Beatitudes to His Cross. Broken, we are blessed in following Him to Calvary. Chastity and complementarity arise from our surrender. Our goal is to embody His new life in an age committed to fracturing it.
Every Monday starting March 3rd and ending on the Monday of Holy Week April 14th, we will send you a reflection on each Beatitude. (The one exception will be the third week in which you will receive two reflections.) Each reading will be followed by several prayer requests for that week. The Desert Stream staff will pray these requests daily, and we ask you to join us in these prayers.
Several other ministries around the country, including Courage and various ministries of the Restored Hope Network, will join us in this ‘Downward Ascent.’ Let us humble ourselves before God, that He might raise up what pleases Him.
