This week marked the start of Lent. It is not something as a church we have done in the past, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t spend time in prayer and reflection leading into the most significant event for Christians each year – the celebration of Jesus dying and rising again.
Lent often conjures up thoughts of our Catholic brothers and sisters denying themselves something for 40 days. So if you’re unfamiliar with what Lent might mean for you, I found this article on Eternity helpful.
A cornerstone of Lent is prayer, and if this is the first time you’ve thought about one thing you can do leading into Easter, this article on crossway.org outlines what prayer is, why we should pray, and how we should pray.
