40 Days of Prayer

The season of Lent is one of introspection and increasing one’s spiritual practice. One may choose to give up something significant for the season of Lent.

Not necessarily something that you would want to give up anyway. Rather it something you value and cherish. The idea is to deprive oneself of something significant in order to experience the scarcity Jesus experienced in the wilderness. Likewise, it is something you look forward to restoring at Easter. This gives you the temptation awareness as well as the celebration when it is reinstated.

You may wish to spend more time in prayer and in reading the Word of God. You may wish to do something special in adding a positive and caring activity in Lent. You may reach out to someone new by phone or email. In so doing you would spend quality time with the other person. Or, you may choose another way to honor Lent.
