Lent 2020

Soul Keeping

Lent is a season of reflection, repentance, and renewal—a season to go deeper with God and partner with him in tending to our souls.

Weekly Practices Guide

  • Week 1: Kneeling for Morning and Evening Prayer

    If you’re physically able, kneel as you pray to begin and end each day. Kneeling in prayer allows the posture of our bodies to reflect—and even shape—the posture of our hearts as we come to God in joyful surrender and dependence.

  • Week 2: Disconnecting from the Screen

    We spend more and more of our lives looking at screens, which enables the world to drive more and more of how we think, feel, focus, and act. Turn off your phone and other screens for at least an hour each day, or put all your screens to bed at least an hour before you go to bed.

  • Week 3: Fasting from Comfort and Convenience

    Choose something to fast from this week—a habit of comfort or convenience. As you move through the week, allow the craving and desire you experience during your fast to draw you back to the sufficiency of Christ’s grace and power.

  • Week 4: Meditating on Scripture

    Spend time each day meditating on one of the passages provided, listening to what the word and Spirit of God have to say about who you are in Christ. As we receive our true identity from God, we combat the shaming voice of the accuser in our lives.

    1 John 3:1-2 | Psalm 100:1-5 | Romans 8:15-17 | Psalm 103:1-18 | Ephesians 2:1-10

  • Week 5: Slowing Down for Silence

    As part of your prayer rhythm, practice silence before God this week. Carve out as little as 10 minutes each day to forego the hurry of life in order to accumulate an hour of resting in his love—not listing requests and concerns, but simply being still and knowing he is God.

  • Week 6: Attending to God's Presence

    God’s empowering presence is with you all day, every day—in worship, prayer, and Scripture, as well as in all the ordinary tasks of your week. Pay attention to God’s presence throughout your waking hours by setting an alert, alarm, or reminder at regular intervals to direct your attention to him.
