Word on Wednesday – John G. Mason February 18, 2015 – ‘Lent’  Today is known in the church calendar as Ash Wednesday – the first day of Lent.

What Prayer Is Prayer is the native language of faith. John Calvin called prayer the “chief exercise of faith.”† That’s why when faith is awake and surging in us, prayer doesn’t feel like a burden or an obligation. It feels natural.
