Need a little spiritual shot in the arm half way through your Lenten journey? Our goal during this season of Lent is to draw closer to Christ through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Lent isn’t about being miserable; it’s about transformation – becoming more like Christ Himself, which can be challenging, no doubt, but the transformation we seek is purifying in a good way. Here are some good ways to step up your game over the next week or to get back on track focusing on these three pillars of Lent if you feel like your current journey hasn’t been real transformative so far.
DIRECTIONS: This is a 6-Day Lenten Boot Camp activity. I recommend you print the chart below and choose/circle one activity/practice for each day (prayer OR fasting OR almsgiving). Over the course of the whole week, try to select two choices from the “PRAY” column, two from the “FAST” column, and two from the “GIVE” column. (For example, on Monday and Thursday you can do something from the Pray column, Tuesday and Friday from Fast, and Wednesday and Saturday from Give…but you can do them in any order depending on which ideas appeal to and challenge you!)
