Spiritual Wake-Up

Create a community of prayer

The Spiritual Wake-Up Program

This year, we are implementing a new program to create a community of prayer within OCF to grow and learn together throughout the lenten season

This program will create the opportunity for you to participate in the same activities each day as others participating, while each of you is immersed in your own environment! 


Imagine waking up to a text containing a prayer, quote, or journaling prompt which 100 other students, any number of miles away, also received! Each one of you will be able to use the time you have in your own day to use these daily resources to aid your lenten journey and connect you to the community!

F . A . Q ‘ s

Interested in joining Spiritual Wake-Up?

What is our goal?

The goal of this program is to connect us to each other and Christ with resources for growth, reflection, and a purposeful wake-up each day throughout the Lenten season.

What will this program look like?

The Spiritual Wake-up will start and end with a community Zoom call to welcome and introduce everyone as well as wrap up and reflect before Holy Week. 

During the course of Lent, you will receive three packages from OCF to connect a virtual program to your physical world. Each package will include a surprise from us to help you on your Lenten journey.

Each week, we will focus on preparation for the coming Sunday.

Our Weekly Themes:

03/15-03/21: Rededication

03/22-03/28: Give

03/29-04/04: Receive

04/05-04/11: Persevere

04/12-04/18: Reflect

04/19-04/23: Awake O’ My Soul

We will be sharing tools and resources within our community in order to start each day with purpose and recenter ourselves on Christ through our ever-changing lives.

How will I participate in the program?

You will receive daily texts each morning with a resource to help begin your day intentionally. The texts will include a range of resources from quotes and useful prayers to journaling prompts and activities to put in practice the theme of the week. 

You will also be paired with a prayer partner who will receive your prayer requests as well as send theirs to you. These partners will stay anonymous until the end of our program!

What is the time commitment?

There will be two one-hour Zoom calls to open and close the program on March 16 at 8:30pm ET and April 22. The daily activities sent to you each morning will take just 5-15 minutes of your day and can be done whenever you need!

How do I sign up?

Registration opens January 25 and closes March 5. There are 100 spots available, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity!
