May 11 -- Day of Prayer and Fasting for World Evangelization

May 11 is a big day this year.
If you're following what's going on in Lakeland, you know it's a big day.
If you're a participant in a church that follows the liturgical church calendar, you know it's Pentecost Sunday.
If you're a Mommy Blogger, then you already KNOW it's REALLY BIG. (PSST -- you, clueless Dad there: It's Mother's Day).
It's also the single biggest day of the year for the US restaurant industry.

It's also the Day of Prayer and Fasting for World Evangelization, with a special focus this year on South America.

Since Mother's Day, restaurants, and fasting don't go so well together (if only they would just consult ME before they go planning these things!), I have decided to invite you all to join me in a week-long fast (type of your choosing) PRIOR to the Big Day.

So, while you're praying for an outpouring of God's glory on our nation, or your moving, contempletive worship service, or your Mom, or My Mom (who gets really bummed on Mother's Day because her children ran off to South America), you can also pray for the Unreached People of the Amazon Basin.

Let's start on Sunday, May 4th at 6 a.m. and end Saturday, May 10th at 6 p.m.

I haven't yet answered the question of whether Daniel would be drinking Diet Coke.

Since Daniel didn't have anything "light" anyway. I think you're safe! I mean it's not like you're drinking calories, carbs or fats. haha And, Daniel didn't have Mother's Day so maybe the person that came up with this date didn't have a mother somehow? "Happy Mother's Day, mom! Order what you want. I'll watch you eat on your special day." Careful, Julian others read this blog. :)
