WAKE UP FOR LENT

Wake Up For Lent


This Lent (Starting Wednesday, 26th February) we are encouraging people to set their alarms 15 minutes earlier each morning, to wake up and pray, focusing on the following 3 areas.

  • To pray for the local church to wake up to its calling
  • Pray for the Love of God to reach the lost and broken in our communities
  • Pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to awaken the island of Ireland

Rev. Roley Heaney of the Irish Church Together network and the Church of Ireland Rector of Redcross in Wicklow, has received “a word from the Lord” to call the churches to a focused daily Prayer commitment for Lent, starting on the 26th Feb.

Along with many others, we very much want to back this. The prayer of a righteous man or woman has great effect, Scripture declares.

What if we could mobilise 10,000 to take up this commitment. Do pray about taking this up yourself and encourage your church/ministry to do the same.

Wake Up For Lent

We are all aware of the hopelessness, despair, pain and brokenness we see all around us every day, but God is still passionate for this nation of Ireland, and wants to radically transform and save it through His power and love. However, for this to happen, it is so important that Christians throughout this island are committed to praying for the Kingdom of God to come.

Jonah was given a great commission to go to Nineveh but decided it wasn’t for him and therefore ran away from the call of God. He ends up in a boat in the middle of a storm, because of his disobedience. The crew are in turmoil, but Jonah is below deck, fast asleep. In Jonah 1:6 it states “The captain went to him and said, ‘How can you sleep? Get up and call on your god! Maybe he will take notice of us so that we will not perish.’”

We believe there is a call for the church throughout Ireland to” wake up” and call upon God, so that with His help we can fulfil the Great Commission He has given to us. (Matthew 28:18-20)
