Time for Daily Prayer: You will need time to pray with the Scripture or our daily Meditation. We suggest anything from 15 minutes to an hour, whatever you find helpful.
If you have a Lent Retreat group locally, then make a weekly date
with them. This will support you in your prayer and help you see where
God is in your prayer and in your life. It will also introduce you to
different ways of praying with Scripture.
To see if there is a local group click on Nearest Group.
Prayer Materials: Choose what is most convenient for you: we provide the materials on the internet for a computer or smartphone, and in printable form via a .pdf A4 sheet also available online. Every day there is one passage from Scripture plus another meditation and a picture to ponder. We also give a few suggestions each day on how to pray the day’s materials.
Reflecting on Prayer; It would be good if after each day’s prayer you jotted down in a journal a few notes on how the prayer had gone. This will help your sharing in the group if you have one. It will also be interesting to reflect on how things are moving during Lent and see whether you discern any patterns in the way God is dealing with you.
