Our Lenten journey at Knollwood began on Ash Wednesday, March 6, and continues throughout a 40-day period of spiritual preparation for Easter. Learn more here about how you can join us in observing this holy season.
Our Lenten journey at Knollwood follows a 40-day period of spiritual preparation for Easter that harkens back to the early centuries of the church.
Throughout Lent, Knollwood members and friends are invited to share in a daily practice of praying for the welfare of our city. The prayer texts run from Monday through Saturday and may be used each week during Lent, expressed at any time of day in any place. By sharing words and concerns, we create communal intercession and perhaps a wider reflection on our city than sometimes emerges in our prayers.
Yet, we also want to personalize these prayers. Each day, as you move through the series of intercessions, notice which one or two requests seem most pressing or vivid to you on that particular day. Slow down or stop. Express in your own words the concerns that most touch your imagination and spirit. In that way, our prayer practice may be shared but not rote, unified but not uniform. May grace be upon our city and upon you as you pray.
The prayer texts are online; printed copies are available after worship and in the church office.
