As this second week of Lent comes to a close, I am thankful for so many things in my life. My heart is also heavy and I’m saddened by the news reports of war, the ugliness of the world that takes center stage. So many people have lost family members, their homes, their belonging and the list continues. My trust remains in God and He is still in control. I’m reminded that the chaos and troubles we are dealing with all around the globe are all man-made. Mankind often chooses evil over good in this world, but God has not turned His back on His people. I pray that truth and wisdom will prevail, and that the killing and suffering will stop. The answer is right in front of us all…God. It’s a message from long ago, yet still relevant and needed today, “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
—2 Chronicles 7:14 (NRSVA)
I found a song called, “Lord, Send A Revival” by B. B. McKinney, written in 1927. I found organ music and the lyric. We could use a revival today. Below I have posted a the lyrics for you to read.

Projects & Activities
🌀 Memorize John 3:16, keep it in your heart, because “God so loved YOU that He gave…” You might even choose to write it on a Post-It note and just randomly post them for others to see. You might even post it on social media sites. If you’re familiar with “rock painting” write John 3:16 on a painted rocks for others to find, such as on park benches, newspapers stands…
“‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” —John 3:16 (NRSVA)
🌀 Fill a simple jar with prayer requests, designate a day of the week as your special prayer day, spend time praying through one or more requests. These requests can be whatever is on your heart.
🌀 Craft a Passover Lamb using cardboard and a printing picture of a lamb. Use white yard and wrap it around the cardboard cut-out. Or if your really energized use cloth and stuffing to make a lamb. Reference Exodus 12:1-13 and see how Jesus demonstrated His love by becoming the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world.
