This Lent Devotional for Women may be a hard one. We’re considering taking up crosses that aren’t ours to carry, being a momma bear for our family, and knowing sometimes the Christian thing to do is walk away from harmful and hurtful relationships, not in anger, haste or spite but in self-preservation.
Lent Devotional for Women whose Lent gets all “Lenty” and knocks us down we can respond like Judas or Paul. We can get up looking for revenge or asking God, “What do You want me to do?” And have you ever heard of praying for Holy Forgetfulness? You’ll want to read about this powerful prayer.
Today let’s talk about the importance, the necessity, of finding our pocket of prayer for our Lent Devotional for Women. We’ll do this by focusing on the prayers of Jesus, specifically the prayers in the Garden and from the Cross. We’ll also briefly touch on repetition and resignation.

I’m reading the story of Joseph and his brothers from the Old Testament. You know, coat of many colors and all, and I’m struck by the fact they call him the ‘dreamer’ and plot to kill him. I start wondering, “who is trying to kill our dreams like Joseph’s brothers?” Some good but tough questions.
I love a good birth story but more importantly, I love it when a momma offers her prayers during labor for all the other mommas who are still laboring in the day to day of parenting.
