This 55 day challenge will require courage to look deep into your heart. It will take courage to ask the Lord to truly show you anything He wants to show and to follow Him into and through those places.

“Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive [pain, hurt, sorrow, idol]* way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting

Psalm 139:23-24

It will take courage to share these things with a sister. Vulnerability is key. Nearly all of my greatest moments of healing were in a beautiful moment with God and a sister. Vulnerability is a risk and takes great courage. I’ve been hurt before through being vulnerable in unwise situations. I’ve been judged and slandered. But I’ve also been blessed beyond my wildest dreams through moments of mutual vulnerability. I’ve seen friends find freedom through this act of sharing my real heart, and they see that they can do the same.

“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed [made whole, freed from sins]*. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

James 5:16

Let’s not keep anything locked away. When it’s not in the light, it can keep us bound in lies and shame. When it’s in the light, Jesus shines His truth on it. ”I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness” (John 12:46). I want to get rid of ANYTHING that has entangled and hindered me. I want to do whatever it takes to be able to run this race well (Hebrews 12:1). When is the right time to start getting unhindered? The time is NOW!

1. If you have a friend that you are doing the challenge together with, did your friend register?

2. If you do not have a friend to do the challenge with, would you like to be connected to another woman who is doing the PureHeart Challenge so that you can share and pray together as needed throughout the 55 days?

3. For those who prefer to do it alone, if there comes a time during the 55 days when you would like to share/pray with another woman, please message us and we will connect you with someone from the PureHeart Japan team.
