Our Christmas season is now over – the Christ-child promised to us has been sent by God to save us. Now we move forward 33 years to this promise coming to fruition as our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ journeys to the cross.

Lent begins on 17 February with Ash Wednesday. This begins the 40 days – excluding Sundays – of walking to the cross with Jesus. Lutheran Tract Mission has produced another Lenten devotional for this year focusing on prayer. Prayer was very important to Jesus. It was a time he could talk to his Father to receive strength for his ministry and for all that lay ahead of him. Jesus used prayer not only to seek his Father’s help for himself but also for his disciples, others touched by his ministry and even us!

The new Lenten devotional ‘Hear our prayer’ by Lutheran Tract Mission is downloadable at to be read as a flipbook on your electronic device or can be printed in booklet form. We encourage congregations to print them off for their members and as an outreach, adding church service times to the back!

May your lives be blessed through this Lenten season – Lord, hear our prayer.
