Day by Day Through Lent - Reflections, Prayers, Practices
In his own efforts to "keep Lent" and develop a more intimate dialogue with the Lord, Father Lowery has compiled a collection of rich reflections based on the biblical readings for each day of Lent. He offers simple, heartfelt prayers to help you reflect more deeply on the Word of God. To help you apply the Word to daily life, Father Lowery presents down-to-earth practices that will help you express your love for God and neighbor in concrete, practical ways. Use these reflections as an opportunity to renew your spiritual self this Lent.
Each day has a selected Scripture reading followed by a reflection on the meaning of the passage and how it touches our lives. Next is a prayer which is drawn from the Psalms or the Liturgy and relates to the theme of the reflection. Finally, each day closes with a suggested way of applying the Scripture to your daily life.
Awesome lent book for those on the go.

|Review:||This book is more than I expected. It offers a daily reading which is short (one page long) and is very easy to read. It offers a scripture verse and then it is explained to the reader in a very easy to understand manner. My favorite part is that and the end it gives you a little prayer and then a "practice" where the reader will actually apply the scripture reading of the day to their daily life that day.

Definately a book to have for Lent

|Review:||I look forward every morning to read the reflection for the day. I like the scripture quotes that you can read from the Bible and then read the reflection and see how the writer applies it to your life today. It starts my day, and it helps me better understand God's word.
