Song & Prayer Through Lent 2021Lent is a season of preparation. This season starts on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter, and itmarked roughly by 40 days. During those days we reflect on a few important themes (reallydoctrines) central to our Faith. As mentioned above, Ash Wednesday begins the season. Itusually encompasses receiving ashes on the forehead in the shape of a Cross. It’s are reminderof our own bodily frailty because of the curse of sin. If you or family participates in AshWednesday, it can be a somber time to discuss how from dust we were made and to dust wewill return (Gen 3:19). Why discuss what could be a depressing and awkward topic? The writerof Ecclesiastes tells us, “Death is the destiny of everyone. The living should take heart” (Ecc.7:2).As Lent continues it offers ample time to reflect on our own sin and shortcomings. Fasting andprayer accompany this time to help each person fully reflect on how we cannot save ourselves,but it is Christ that does. This is what is meant by preparation. As we prepare for Easter, Lentaffords us an opportunity in the busyness of life to slow down and remember what Christ hasredeemed us from. Sharing with your kids how you might observe or think about Lent willcreate honesty and deepen the parent-child relationship. You may not get much in return,some kids may not be as reflective, but you can share the Good News that all are redeemedwho would turn to Jesus Christ.Our theme of “Into the Wilderness” comes from Mark 1:12 where Jesus goes into thewilderness, endures and then overcomes temptation from Satan. The 40 days of Lent issymbolic of the days the Israelites wandered in the Wilderness and were totally reliant on Godto guide and provide for them. Also it represents the 40 days Jesus experienced temptation inthe desert (Matthew 4:1-11and Luke 4:1-13). Jesus fasted and prayed during this trial and reliedon God and His Word to help Him face and overcome these temptations. Utter dependence onGod alone is the key to the journey through Lent; trusting for Him for provision and guidance aswe seek to uncover the things that we substitute for Him (idols).Below you will see a link to the Lent 2021 Spotify Playlist, and below that you will find prayersand songs to use for you to use by yourself or with your family.

Neil Stiller (v. 2018) For a long time I’ve been puzzled about the precise relationship between Lent and the Sundays in Lent. Not because it’s a specially complicated matter, it just takes me a long time to figure things out. I know that while the Sundays in Lent are within the 40 days of Lent they are not
