A Simple Rule: Lent Prayer Journey

Email Journey

YouVersion Journey

Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances.

So wrote the Apostle Paul to Christians in Thessalonica nearly 2,000 years ago (1 Thess 5:16-18) – and his advice is just as relevant for us today.

Over 40 days, this prayer journey will help you develop a simple ‘rule for life’ – a rhythm of prayer that integrates your faith into your daily life. You’ll follow Paul’s structure: regularly rejoicing, praying, and giving thanks in all circumstances.

As you do, you’ll develop an increasing awareness of God’s presence with you and the gifts he generously bestows. You’ll develop fresh habits of prayerfulness, bringing every part of life to your heavenly Father. And you’ll grow more like Christ, shaped by time spent with him.

When you sign up, you’ll receive a short prompt to pray each day, together with a brief thought helping you explore how to develop your own ‘simple rule’ of life.
