Prepare Your Heart
A 40-Day Lenten Devotional
using Anglican Prayer Beads
to Prepare Your Heart for Easter
Explore a deeper, more tangible prayer time this Lent
Pray through the daily Lectionary readings using Anglican prayer beads (or pray without them). Using prayer beads brings a more tactile, tangible aspect to your prayers and encourages slower, more focused prayers.
Prepare your heart for Easter by dwelling in God’s Word
Each day’s prayers are firmly grounded in Scripture. You’ll start your prayer time by reading the day’s verses and reflecting on their meaning in your life. Then, you’ll use those same verses in your prayers, allowing God’s Word to permeate your heart and soul as you pray.
Open your heart to more closely follow in God’s way
The Lenten readings and prayers are focused on coming before God with a humble and penitent heart. As you pray through this season, you’ll open your heart to God, confess your sins, and prepare to more closely follow in God’s way.
Learn a new method of prayer – praying with Anglican prayer beads
Using prayer beads isn’t a requirement for this devotional, but it will greatly enhance your experience. Prayer beads aren’t just for Catholics. Protestants can pray with beads, too!
The Anglican prayer beads have been widely adopted by Protestant believers and bring a deeper, more focused method of prayer. Praying with Protestant prayer beads are focused on praying scripture and a great complement to this Lenten devotional.
Instructions for praying with prayer beads are included in this devotional, along with several bonus prayers you can pray throughout the year.

My favorite of Kathryn's devotionals-- and that's saying a lot!
Prepare Your Heart is my favorite of Kathryn's devotionals-- and that's saying a lot. This is my fourth of Kathryn's devotionals. Having been raised Roman Catholic, Rosary beads have always been a critical prayer method for me. I started attending an Episcopal Church six years ago and I am grateful to add Anglican prayer beads to my practice. Prepare Your Heart has been a wonderful introduction. Based on the daily readings from the Revised Common Lectionary, Prepare Your Heart guides you through repeating scripture passages using the prayer beads. Using the beads helps me stay present in my prayers and I love that they are grounded in scripture!
Tremendous Help and Resource
Prepare Your Heart has been a tremendous help and resource for me. I love the encouragement, resources and prayers. The weekly prayer is my spiritual jumpstart every Monday morning and throughout the week!
