Lenten prayer can be wonderful for spiritual renewal. Praying Lent reminds the reader to focus on what God gives us, rather than on what we give up.
An introduction to Lenten prayer as a path to spiritual renewal.

Lent can be wonderful time of spiritual renewal, however for many, Lent and Lenten prayer is often thought of as an “ordeal.” What can often be overlooked amid Lenten observances, such as fasting, abstinence, or the common tradition of giving something up, is the opportunity Lent presents, through Lenten prayer and preparation, to deepen our commitment to a way of life rooted in our baptism.

Praying Lent: Renewing Our Lives on the Lenten Journey reminds the reader that if we focus too much on what we give up we may miss the message of what God wants to give us during this grace-filled time. Created in partnership with Creighton University’s popular Online Ministries, Praying Lent provides readers with a rich, full, and transformative Lenten prayer experience, one in which hearts, minds, and lives are truly renewed as Lent takes on a far deeper and more meaningful purpose.
