Lent's a good time to be more intentional about your prayer life, so perhaps one of more of these items will be helpful to you on your Lenten journey. (They're on the round table as you come into church, so help yourself -- and share them with others, if you'd like.)

"Psalms for Lent: Devotions for the Sacred Season" -- a daily devotional

"Mary Oliver and the Poetry of Lent" -- a weekly devotional

Bookmarks with the Lenten worship schedule through Holy Week & Easter

Key tags -- a little reminder of this season to go on your key ring

Lenten Prayers for Hungry People -- Readings, prayers, and actions from Bread for the World

Here are a few devotional resources you might find helpful during Lent and beyond.

Sacred Space is a joint venture of the Irish Jesuits and Loyola Press. You can find it online at I tend to buy the printed version each year. It starts in Advent and goes through the church year.
