Lent - a Season of Prayer

Lent 2021 is February 17-April 3

Lent is a time of prayer and preparation for the celebration of Easter. It spans 40 days (not counting Sundays).

Lent has been practiced by the Church since the fourth century. Traditionally it is observed by prayer, fasting, and giving.

The journey of Lent is opportunity to remember our own mortality and need for Christ. We focus on the suffering and sacrifice of our Lord, and the life he exampled for us to live in like manner. Lent is a time for self-examination and a spirit of repentance.

Lent is a journey that moves toward Easter. Although we travel through darkness, we look forward to the celebration of Christ’s resurrection and triumph over sin and death.

For more information and resources on ways to observe Lent, check out the links below.

  • Lent: Preparation for Easter - article from the Nazarene publication Holiness Today
  • Sacred Invitation: Lenten Devotionals Inspired by the Book of Common Prayer - available for purchase via The Foundry Publishing or Amazon
  • The Season of Lent - explanation of the history and worship practices of the season from The Voice (Christian Resource Institute)
  • Daily Scripture Readings - adapted from The Book of Common Prayer
  • Lenten Candles Family Activity - although promoted as an activity for families with children, this can be used by anyone. A devotional resource is included, but the activity can be used with any devotional or scripture reading you are using for Lent. It is instructed to use this activity the Sundays during Lent, but it can be done any day during the week, especially if you already have a family devotional time established.

Busted Halo is a Catholic based site that offers resources helpful to Catholic and Protestant alike. Consider these Lent themed selections:

Pray for Global Missions

Remember our missionaries throughout the year in prayer. Many are often facing troubled times in the places in which they serve. They seek to be peacemakers and agents of transformation. They need our support through intercession.

The Prayer Mobilization Line (PML) is a weekly publication focusing on the prayer needs and praise reports for the global ministries of the Church of the Nazarene and our missionaries.
