40 Days 40 Cards
The Church Army Lent Resource has been designed to give you, your small group or your church space and time each day throughout Lent to listen to God, reflect on the Bible, and see how and where you can listen to His leading in your actions and attitudes.
Each pack contains 40 beautiful cards divided into Action Cards, Character Cards, and Reflection Cards and Marks of Mission Cards.
These cards include a relevant passage from Scripture, and a question for you to reflect on over the next few days to challenge yourself in your faith life. They focus on stories of faith in action from Church Army’s Centres of Mission near where you are
These cards focus on the faith story of people from the Bible, themes in their story, and signpost to where you can read more about each character.
These cards prompt you to read a Psalm, and to use that Psalm as a doorway to prayer for the day. The focus of these cards is, as the name suggests, more reflective than the other cards.
Marks of Mission Cards
These cards take one of the Marks of Mission and encourage you to ask questions about your church’s way of expressing that Mark. The first is an introduction to the Marks, so don’t worry if you haven’t come across them before.
- Pray for help for those who use it to draw closer to God in their walk with him.
- Pray for encouragement for those who feel anxious about sharing faith to see new ways to do so.
- Pray for increased awareness for the work CA is doing through our Centres of Mission.
- Pray to widen people’s idea of how their church can share Gods love through the Marks of Mission.
- Pray that the artwork would inspire people to see Biblical characters in a fresh light.
Unpack the cards
“This resource is intended to be easy to use, beautiful to look at, and to be an encouragement to listen to God through Lent inspired by stories of faith in action taken from Scripture and from communities across the UK and Ireland. Whilst you can buy the set of cards you can also subscribe free to receive email reflections throughout Lent. We want everyone who can to be able to join in and to be blessed in their journey with us through Lent!”
The Church Army Lent Resource is beautifully creative, brilliantly engaging, and a gentle balance of action, learning, reflection and prayer. I pray that thousands of people will find it a hugely helpful resource for Lent.
