Lent resource: ‘Working from rest – a prayer journey’

This Lent resource comes from the Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC).

Sabbath rest is essential to our identity as God’s people: a gift to refresh us and equip us for good work.

But many of us find it hard to do – either because life seems unstoppably busy, or because the pressures and demands we are faced with seem overwhelming.

This 40-day prayer journey will help you explore the reasons for restlessness, God’s gift of rest, and how your work – in your job, your home, or your street – can flow from that place of rest and connection with him.

As you pray and reflect on examples from the Bible, you’ll develop fresh habits of godly rest, learn how to work fruitfully instead of relentlessly, and grow in trust for the loving heavenly Father who holds your days in his hands.

When you sign up, you’ll receive a short ‘prompt to pray’ each day, together with a brief thought helping you explore how to work from the rest God provides.
