Lent is a 40-day period prior to Easter often used by Christians to nurture their faith in Jesus.
It is a season which lasts approximately 6 weeks from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.
Why not consider using this time to become more disciplined in prayer, join a bible study, do Alpha or go without something to reflect your desire to serve God?
Many Christian organizations offer daily bible study programs online if you are interested.
The Bible Society Australia could send you a verse, reflection and prayer for the day. You can subscribe to it via the following address: http://www.biblesociety.org.au/dailybible
