Reflections for Lent offers a simple way to make space for Bible study and reflection from Ash Wednesday (22 February 2012) to Holy Saturday (7 April 2012).
** Please note, owners of Reflections for Daily Prayer app, who have bought a subscription that covers this period, do not need to buy this app, many thanks **
Each day (excluding Sundays) it provides daily Bible readings, a reflection by a leading author, and a prayer for the day.
Christians have used the season of penitence we call Lent to prepare for Jesus` suffering, death and resurrection at Easter. In Lent it is traditional to fast, pray and practice self-denial. But keeping Lent also involves taking up things that help us focus on God.
In particular, Christians are encouraged to set aside time for reading and meditating on God`s word. Reflections for Lent can help you find a time and space to do this - on the move, at work or at home.
For each of the forty days of Lent, the app gives you:
- A reflection on a Bible reading
- A Collect (prayer)
- Full lectionary details for Morning Prayer from Common Worship
The daily reflections are written by leading authors Martyn Percy, Angela Tilby and Jane Williams.
Other features of this app:
Browse reflections by date, author and Bible reading
Bookmark your favourite daily entries for easy reference
See reflections for the week ahead
Follow Bible reference links to the online Oremus Bible Browser (NRSV) - no need for a separate Bible app
