Lent - 40 days of prayer
Nico Marais, our Worship Pastor, has produced another set of daily devotions to help us journey through Lent this year. They were first issued in 2015, but have been refreshed for this year. In his introduction he says
"Lent is a wonderful opportunity to give up things that might be distracting us from growing in our relationship with Christ and to get into good habits. This set of daily devotions is aimed to help us all grow in our private and corporate prayer lives. Nothing of great importance will ever happen in God’s Kingdom if we do not pray. Prayer underpins everything we do at HTR and it should be a central part in every Christian life.
Often we do not know how to pray, what to say, what to ask for or what to physically do when we spend time with God. There is no set formula for praying. That is why my prayer is that these devotions will help start something sustainable in the way we pray. May we grow closer to God as we explore the immense adventure and power of a life filled with prayer."
Each day there is a reading, a short reflection, something to do in response and a quote. There's also a memory verse to learn every week.
