Lent Project - February 24

Sunday, February 24
Second Sunday in Lent

Questions/Thoughts: Though Abram still did not have a son of his own, the Lord promised him countless descendants. Abram was counted righteous because of his faith. Even though it seemed impossible, he believed what the Lord told him. How is this encouraging to you? How have you seen the Lord work in your own life, even when things seemed impossible? What does it look like to be brave and courageous as you wait for the Lord? What is some of the imagery in these passages regarding God’s protection?

Hope beyond all human hope,
you promised descendants as numerous as the stars
to old Abraham and barren Sarah.
You promise light and salvation
in the midst of darkness and despair,
and promise redemption to a world that will not listen.
Gather us to yourself in tenderness,
open our ears to listen to your word,
and teach us to live faithfully
as people confident of the fulfillment of your promises.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.
