Lent 2019 Devotional: Writers Needed

Although it is only January, it's time to start thinking about Lent. We will be publishing our 2019 Lenten devotional book two weeks before Ash Wednesday. Anyone is welcome to help write a devotional for this year. The deadline is January 28. That gives you almost 4 weeks to come up with an idea! 

To see a sample page from our 2018 devotional, click here. We always welcome new writers, so please share this with anyone you know who might want to write.

2019 Lenten Devotional Book

Deadline for submission: Monday, January 28.

Content and format (similar to Our Daily Bread devotional)


  1. Title 

  2. Bible verse and Bible translation you used

  3. Your reflections, devotional, thoughts (Please keep it under 300 words in this part. The sample attached is 285 words.) 

  4. Sentence prayer

  5. Your name 

• If you use a quote or a few lines from another source (poem, hymn) please provide the source.  

• Do not worry about formatting of any kind because the editor reformats it in the layout program to make it look “pretty” like the sample. Left aligned for everything works well
