LENTEN PRACTICES

 
 

PRAYER

In prayer we open ourselves to the Spirit, allowing Him to form us into the image of Christ and speak to us lovingly.

WORSHIP, PRAYER & QUIET SPACE

Every Friday during Lent 11am-2pm – Bloom Main Space Drop in as you are. We’ll have prayer guides available or you are welcome to receive the space as you need it. We also encourage you to fast during lunch on Fridays.

THE EXAMEN PRAYER

To be prayed through at the close of the day, this is a loving look alongside God at your day. It is a prayer of thanksgiving, confession, forgiveness, and receiving God’s love.

FASTING

In fasting we give up that which we need (or think we need) to survive and allow the Lord to minister to us. This often invokes us to prayer, silence, rest, and a new dependence on God.

Food Fast

Fasting from food every Friday during Lent. Instead of eating use the time to open yourself up to the Lord in silence and prayer.

Media Fast

Fasting from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TV, radio, podcasts, and/or music over the duration of Lent. We encourage everyone to fast from media during Lent for the purpose of quieting the noise of the world and to create space for God to speak instead.
