This book contains forty daily devotions to help readers prepare themselves spiritually throughout the sacred season of Lent. The Bible verses are taken from the daily lectionary Lent readings that are commonly used by Christian churches all over the world.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Palm Sunday. The forty days represent both the forty days of judgment associated with story of Noah’s Ark, as well as the forty days of trial that Jesus endured in the wilderness.
The purpose of Lent is to prepare Christ’s followers for the intensity of Holy Week. These devotions are meant to help each reader to draw closer to God through Christ’s mercy and grace.
