    Stories from the Wilderness

    The 40 days leading to Easter are often linked to Jesus’ time in the wilderness. 40 days of prayer and fasting. Facing temptation, but emerging victorious. This year, 24-7 Prayer and CSW are partnering to share wilderness tales: Christians who faced fierce battles because of their faith in Jesus, yet encountered God in the midst of it.
