40 Days of Methodist Prayer


I am participating the 40 Days of Prayer that has been put together by the UMC Young Clergy.  I have been super busy with life lately, so I have not been able to do anywhere near as much as I would like to do with this, but I did write a prayer for this journey, and I strongly, strongly encourage each of you to participate in this.  I am going to post some links to the people who are spearheading this for us.
