Lent - There Will Be Joy

As winter gives way to spring, we will explore how the spark of the coming light and the seeds of new life offer hope for the joy that will come. During this Season of Lent, we will discover together how God helps us find meaning in hard circumstances and leads us into new life-giving opportunities and possibilities.

Weeping may linger for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
Psalm 30:5b

asbury prayer booklet

Prayer helps us through uncertainty, worry, and doubt, while also helping us to celebrate joy, purpose, and faith. Prayer is a journey and mystery, something we never quite master, but when we practice it, it always brings us closer to God.

This booklet is a collection of prayers written by Asbury staff and members. We hope it will be a blessing and resource for you as you journey with God.
