Lenten Prayer Practice
The Marble Prayer Ministry Team invites you to use the Prayer Room (29th St lobby/next to Reception) during Lent for one hour per week commitments to pray for others and yourself. Please sign-up for specific times on the clipboard in the Prayer Room. Of course you may also pray wherever you are during that time. Another way to prepare yourself to draw closer to God is through some form of fasting, whether it be from a certain food, electronics, criticism, etc. Please consider enriching your Lenten journey with these powerful commitments.
