Ash Wednesday: “Ask for More from God This Lent”

The Ascension Lenten Companion: Year B


Follow along with The Ascension Lenten Companion: Year B E-Book—a daily prayer resource that will help readers discover what it is that God is offering them this Lent.

What prevents you from asking God for everything? Fear, unmet expectations, a disbelief that God won’t come through? What if this Lent you asked God for more?

Fr. Mark Toups kicks off this Lent with a call to action—a call to ask God for more, a call to trust that God can give you more. Don’t let Lent be just like any “ordinary time” that leaves you unchanged. Let it challenge you to ask God to transform your life in this holy season.

What would transform your life this Lent? What if you asked God for it?

Join us every day of Lent as we come face to face with all that is holding us back and ask God to set us free.
