Welcome to A Season of Prayer: 40 Days in the Desert

We’re excited to launch A Season of Prayer: 40 Days in the Desert—a special daily prayer practice for Lent. The new Season of Prayer will encourage people to pray and reflect on our response to the global refugee crisis and the Christian obligation of hospitality and welcome. 

Each day during Lent, we’ll be posting shareable prayer images on Forward Movement’s Facebook and Twitter feeds, and we’ll be posting the prayers in Spanish on Adelante Dia a Dia’s Facebook page.

In addition to the daily images, we’re offering the downloadable bulletin inserts below—in English and Spanish—for churches and small groups to print and utilize throughout the season. And starting today, you’ll be able to browse many additional offerings, including videos, on the official Season of Prayer resources page

Hugo Olaiz, assistant editor for Latino/Hispanic resources at Forward Movement, has led the effort. Here’s Hugo with more on this project:

 

And here are the downloadable bulletin inserts in full and for each week in Lent:
