Practical, prophetic, and inspiring, this unique resource will transform your congregation's experience of the Lenten season by following in Jesus' footsteps on the road to Jerusalem and the cross. The book consists of seven weeks of meditations, including Bible readings for Holy Week. Each week open with a spiritual theme for the week: Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving, Bible Study, Service, and Gratitude.
Every day's devotion begins with a Scripture reading from the Gospel of Luke and an African proverb or other saying, followed by a meditation and concluding with a biblical prayer focus. Distinctive among Lenten devotionals, this work includes meditations for Sundays, which feature group discussion questions for church school or Bible study use and an invitation to personal action in the week ahead. Also includes Scripture readings for Holy Week
