Table Prayers for Lent

The 40 days of Lent are a time of confession, reflection, and prayer that helps Christians prepare for Easter. Below you will find scripture, prayers, and reflective practices to use during your Lenten journey.

We encourage each household to make a Lent Jar. Decorate a jar or cup. Cut out these strips of paper and place them in your Lent Jar. Each day of Lent, pull out a slip of paper and let that guide your table prayer that day. They do not have to be done in any particular order

These can be used individually or with your family. They are ideal to use at the table during a daily meal but can also be used to begin or end the day.

Reflections were prepared by the ministers of First Baptist Church of Asheville. Unless noted all scripture quotations are taken from the New Revised Standard Version
