"But those who hope in the lord will renew their strength. they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
– Isaiah 40:31

During the coming season of Lent, may we come before our almighty father with penitence in our hearts, asking for His mercy and grace upon our lives. We thank you, Lord Jesus for this time of prayerful reflection so that we may pursue spiritual renewal and awakening in reverence of your passion and resurrection.

Lord, we pray that through prayer, fasting and giving that you would open our eyes to the suffering in the world and the need for a risen Savior. We pray for our Christian brothers and sisters living in the Holy Land who still endure hardships, that you would use us to be a blessing to them.


As faithful supporters of the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land, thank you for being a light in the darkness for many suffering Christians. As we observe Lent in the weeks leading up to Easter and the celebration of our risen Savior, please prayerfully consider a gift to help these men, women and children. Your philanthropic support helps us connect Christians with access to sustainable employment, safe housing, and life-changing education and provides essential resources and programs that enable them to remain and thrive in the birthplace of our Savior.


On behalf of the Christians living in the Holy Land, I thank you for your generous sacrifices, faithful support and your prayers. And, I humbly ask you to answer the Lord’s call to serve one another’s needs and consider a gift of $150 to bless the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ.


Please know that I will continue to keep you and your loved ones in my daily prayers. May you have a meaningful Lent and jubilant Easter celebration.
