LENT: a solemn religious observance in the liturgical calendar of many Christian denominations that begins on Ash Wednesday and covers a period of approximately six weeks before Easter Sunday. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, penance, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial.”
I learned a world of prayer traditions as I traveled around our beautiful planet. As we mark the beginning of this season of Lent, let’s see it as a “New Year” for our prayer lives. Prayer doesn’t have to be a boring routine or tradition – it can be full of creativity and movement and action. Like any relationship, it’s a free-flowing dialogue. Prayer is about being in love.
