The theme for this edition of An Illustrated Lent for Families is Reflections on Prayer. As we journey through this season of Lent together, families are invited to focus intentionally on the spiritual discipline of prayer. By exploring Gospel passages of Jesus engaged in prayer, families are encouraged to learn new ways to expand and enrich their experiences of prayer, individually, as a family, and in community. And finally, each week we will create time and space to learn about prayer from Jesus through scripture readings, discussions, and family activities.
Our Lent devotionals are written to be used by children and adults of all ages. We
believe you'll find questions and discussion topics in each devotional that will work for
your children, no matter the age. At the same time, we invite you to feel free to tweak
the content and questions to work for your family. Don’t feel like you need to do all the
activities for it to be a meaningful experience for you and your family or community. We
invite you to take a look at the devotionals, see what you think will work best for your
family’s schedule, and find time each week to gather together as a family.
