Now you can also download the entire schedule in pdf format. Simply click on the "40-Day Bible Reading Challenge" link in the upper right hand column of this website, under the "Lent 2012" header. You may want to journal your thoughts on the Scripture readings, too. You may be surprised at what our Lord shows you!

Pray before reading. Here is another prayer for you:

"Illuminate our hearts, O God who loves mankind, with the pure life of Thy Divine knowledge, and open the eyes of our mind to understand Thy Message of Good Tidings. Implant in us the fear of Thy Blessed Commandments; that, trampling down all carnal desires, we may pursue a godly life, both thinking and performing such things as are well pleasing to Thee. For Thou are the Light of our souls and bodies, Christ our God, and to Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thy Eternal Father and Thine All Holy, Blessed and Life-Giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen."

May your reading be blessed!
