40 Days of Prayer: Day of Thanksgiving

40 Days of Prayer Sunday

Since we rejoice in the Resurrection and our salvation on Sunday, we invite you to join us today in offering up prayers of thanksgiving to God for the gift of extravagant love – Jesus Christ. We also give thanks for our blessings and answered prayers in our earthly lives.

The 40 days of Lent exclude Sundays, as this day of the week is set aside to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection. For our “40 Days of Prayer” observation, our Sisters will continue prayer for intentions received on Sundays during Lent.

About 40 Days of Prayer

Lent is a welcome time for many Christian, when we open our hearts to Christ and prepare ourselves to go forward in faith through prayer, reflection and living more simply. As part of our Lenten journey, prayer strengthens our faith and moves us to manifest God’s extravagant love in our own lives. This Lenten season (March 1 – April 13), we invite you to join us in 40 Days of Prayer.

Send your prayer intentions

If your or a loved is in need of prayer, please send it our Sisters, and we will remember in our daily prayers during Lent – and beyond. (click here to send us a request online)

Pray With Us

Every day during Lent, we will post a shared prayer intention on our website and Facebook page. We invite you to take a moment during your Lenten reflections to pray for this intention with us. (Click here for the shared prayer intentions calendar)
