WHAT ARE WE PRAYING ABOUT?
I can't answer that for you, but I will tell you some of the things I will be praying for in my fasting: that God will lead me to the fullness of repentance and faith in the areas where I need it, that God will strengthen and sanctify me in my several callings as husband, father, and priest, that God will manifest his will in, through, and among the parish family of CTR, and that God will manifest his glory in his holiness, his goodness, his righteousness, his love, his grace, and his mercy. As the Bible instructs us in Joel 1:14, "Consecrate a fast. Call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the LORD your God and cry out to the LORD."
this be our time to assemble before God with fasting and prayer to discern his
will for our parish family in our witness to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
And, if you have more questions or comments, please contact me. Fr. Chris Culpepper+
