2017 Lenten Guided Prayer Experience:
Restore Us, Oh God!
Do you long for a resource that integrates prayer and scripture into daily life?
This seven week prayer process does just that. Using the same scripture readings many Mennonite congregations across Canada use in Sunday worship during the season of Lent (as found in Leader magazine), participants practice forms of contemplative prayer and become more aware of the Spirit of God moving in our lives. This year’s theme “Restore us, Oh God!” invites us to face both the limits of our humanity and our need for divine transformation.
Participants in the Lenten Guided Prayer Experience will:
- Pray with the Biblical texts at home 3 to 4 days/week
- Meet weekly in a small group with a facilitator to share from your life of prayer (either in Sunday School, or another setting)
Prayer sheets will be emailed by early February to all groups or individuals who register to participate. Each sheet introduces the theme of the week and provides different suggestions for deepening one’s experience of the Lenten scriptures.
Small groups of 2 to 4 people
Congregations are encouraged to form small groups of 2 to 4 people who meet with a group facilitator to share their prayer experiences. In some congregations small groups might meet during ‘Sunday School’ time, while others might meet during the week.
