Lent for Married Couples 2023
We offer this series to help you and your spouse stay connected during the holy season of Lent.
We invite you to take a short time—about 20 minutes a day—to do something for your marriage. On Easter morning, you will find greater unity, an increased appreciation for learning more about each other, and a gratitude for the small ways you’ve chosen to show your love and affection.
Set yourself up for success! Pick a time of day you can be consistent with. Turn off your phones and other distractions. Light a candle. Sit close together and take turns reading the parts out loud. We have selected one of the daily readings for you to read each day. It is followed by a meditation, a time for quiet reflection, discussion, a blessing, and a prayer for unity.
You might be thinking . . .
“Pray together every day?! Really?!”
If you miss a day or two, don’t worry! Start small—say, twice a week. Remember, each effort you make to pray and talk more with your spouse is a victory. Your marriage will grow stronger and you will be happier as a couple. You will begin to see God’s grace and the Holy Spirit at work in your relationship. Your example will bring hope to the world.
