Lent prayer set
Just like the Advent season is a great time to pause and reflect on God incarnate as we prepare for Christmas, so the Lent season is a great time to pause and remember the sacrifice Christ made for us when he died on the cross as we prepare for Easter.
A set to support more time in prayer during lent
This Lent prayer set includes:
• two straight ivory candles numbered similar to advent candles to count down the days of Lent until Easter.
• a 48 page lined notebook with a crown of thorns illustration and the sorts « I need Thee every hour »
• an assortment of 6 leaf stickers to stick on to your crown of thorns to signify the new life we have in Christ, thanks to His death.

One of the three pillars of Lent is prayer. If we desire to get closer to God, it will most likely be necessary to increase our prayer life. There are many ways to add to our daily prayer routine.
How to use the lent prayer set
Here is one way this Lent prayer set could support this increased prayer endeavour as we approach Easter.
Consider finding a time each day and lighting the candle until it reaches the next number, counting down from 40 all the way down to 1. Each candle has around an 8 hour burn time, so between the the numbers will be around 20 minutes. This is a good amount of time to spend in prayer each day.
The notebook is lined and has plenty of room for you to record your prayers, and will keep you focused during the 20 minutes.
The print will be a great reminder to place your Hope in the word of God, and praying back God’s word to Him is a great place to start if you are unsure.
