Encountering Jesus in Scripture: The 30 Day Prayer Challenge 2021


Do you want your parish, school, small group, or family to become a "school of prayer"? Do you want your 2021 to be better than your 2020? Then rest on God's promises to those who reach out to Christ in prayer, and join us in this 30-day daily prayer challenge. Encourage your parish, family and/or friends to pray through the Gospel of Luke in one month through 15 minutes daily of Lectio Divina (sacred reading). This free 12-page booklet challenges you and shows you how to pray through lectio, and gives you daily scripture prompts and space for short prayers each day. There are also weekly reflection challenges. 

Feel free to download, print en masse, and give away to your parish as Christmas gift, mailing, New Year's Resolution gift, small faith sharing group challenge, and more. There are two booklets: the same inside, but one has a black and white cover and the other a color cover. The pastoral center does have free printed copies of the black and white cover booklet for parishes taking this challenge: first come, first served. This challenge will be supported on our diocesan facebook page in the month of January.
