During the 40 days before Easter, our SBC pastor has challenged us all to pray for revival. He said this is the way he wants us to do it:

Draw a circle about 3 feet in diameter. Stand in the circle. Then ask God to send revival to everyone inside the circle...

So I guess for ‘Lent’, we are being challenged to give up our desires, and to daily ask God to change us, and to fill us with His Spirit.

My guess is that most Catholics would view that favorably.
