A Word a Day for 40 Days: a Lent Reading Planimage

Lent is a time to reflect upon your life and awaken to your need for a Savior. Perhaps you desire to observe this holy season but don't know where to begin. This reading plan is designed to help you engage daily with the Scriptures in a fresh way. For each of the 40 days of Lent (with rest on Sundays), you'll explore a word-of-the-day to encourage reflection. Each devotion will also include a passage from Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm. Watch how this plan unifies all of Scripture and how it all points to Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
