The Awkward Season: Prayers for Lent offers Christian pilgrims a "prayer path" to follow through Lent. For each day of the week, prayers of invocation, confessions, intercession, and thanksgiving are shaped around a theme prompted by the psalm for the day. A daily Scripture reading is provided, but Hawkins welcomes readers to use a different passage if it comes to mind; this book, she reminds the reader, is designed to support rather than dictate a Lenten journey. A finger labyrinth at the back of the book serves as an optional prayer tool for those who wish to try it and an order for Lenten praise and prayer provides a simpe, beautiful way for groups who meet weekly to share this Lenten experience. Whether used individually or in a gathering, The Awkward Season will be a road map for the journey as you spend time with "the One who longs to be your companion in this season and always."
