Words for the Wilderness

Devotional Cards for Lent

  [These devotional cards are included in our Wilderness Lent Bundle of resources. If you’re interested in purchasing the devotional cards separately, choose one of the licensing options below based on how many copies you wish to print for your church/community]

As you select & contemplate the words day by day, get creative and display your words in a fun way—adhere the cards to a fridge or wall, create a fun wall hanging, or arrange them on a desk or table. Display the cards so you can continue journeying with the words throughout the entire season of Lent.

This is a great daily devotional for middle & high school youth, college students, young adults, and adults of all ages.

“One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).

This Lent, journey through the wilderness with words to sustain you every step of the way. Print, cut, and select a card each day of Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday. Contemplate the word you select each day, trusting that it is exactly what you need for that day. Then read the short scripture verse and prayer on the back of the card.
