What’s Your 52? An article recently posted on Disciples Today by Wade Cook, Leader of the ICOC Singles Service Team
So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days. — Nehemiah 6:15
God did amazing things in 52 days through Nehemiah, Ezra and several others who took it upon themselves to rebuild the crumbled walls of Jerusalem. They embraced the challenge with a resolute faith despite unbelievable obstacles, fully convinced that the hand of the Lord was with them. God acted! So what can God do for us in 52 days? What are some of the crumbled walls we want God to rebuild in our singles ministries, in our cities and in our lives?
Let’s take the 52 day challenge and find out!
Think of this similar to “The Ice Bucket Challenge.” Film yourself sharing what your 52 is, post on your Facebook page and challenge others by saying What’s Your 52? and holding up 5 fingers and then 2 fingers. This will unite singles’ ministries around the world and pull everyone that could not be at the conference into the 52 Day Challenge. The goal is to create a fever that helps people grow in their faith as they see what God can do in a short time.
You’ve heard about the shot heard around the world? Let’s make our “52 day challenge” one heard around the world as well!
Fernando Alejandro from Springfield, MA committed to asking 52 single men to study the bible in the next 52 days. Read his story on Disciples Today. He asked every single brother who does the 52 day challenge to include asking at least 7 single men to study the bible and when you call out two others make sure you include that challenge.
