Our 40-Day Easter Prayer Guide has officially started! Missed a week? We’ll be adding the weekly readings and fun printables here as we go.
If you’re anything like us, you may find yourself excited for holidays and all of the sweet celebration they bring, but they often sneak up on you. In fact, with a holiday like Easter, it can be hard for the gravity of Christ’s death and resurrection to really sink in over the Easter weekend!
That’s why we’re taking 40 days to spend time in prayer, really setting our hearts and perspectives for the celebration of Easter Sunday. Our team has created a free 40-Day Easter Prayer Guide—including prayer prompts, Scripture, and weekly fasting ideas—with the hope that this will be a helpful resource in the weeks ahead. For those of you familiar with Lent, we’ll be beginning our time of prayer on Ash Wednesday, which falls on March 6 this year, and ending on Easter Sunday (April 21)! (Check out this blog post if you’d like to read more about Lent.)
So what will this look like, and how can you join us?!
Each Monday morning starting March 4, we’ll send you an email with everything you need to pray alongside us that week. We’ll include a downloadable PDF with daily prayer prompts and Scripture as well as ideas for something you can fast from that week (technology, entertainment, etc.). We’ll also include a phone wallpaper with Scripture each week and some fun printables along the way!
How do you typically prepare for Easter each year? What traditions do you have for celebrating this special holiday with family and friends? We’d love to hear your ideas in the comments section below!
