The three Pillars of Lent are: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, so for yourPILLAR DICE you will put different activities that you can do to practice the Pillars of Lent.
Choose 6 activities you can do for Lent. One Action will go on each side of your Pillar Dice.
2 things you can do to grow spiritually (Prayer)
2 things you can give up (Fasting)
2 things you can do for others (Almsgiving)
Choose 6 Intentions
The other dice will be your INTENTIONS DICE.
We have the opportunity during the Lenten season to intercede for others through our disciplined and intentional sacrifices.
Spend some time to think of 6 specific intentions you would like to pray for this Lent to include on your dice. These can be for people you know or people you don’t know - as general or specific as you would like. Ask the Holy Spirit for specific intentions.
... Come Holy Spirit ...
If you want to keep things simple, use the Sharpie and simply write on your Pillar Dice the 6 Actions, and on your Intentions Dice, your 6 intentions.
You can put a coat of Mod Podge over the top of the dice to seal it and make it glossy, but it is not necessary.
How to Mod Podge pictures or paper onto your dice:
Cut out whatever 2'' x 2'' picture or paper you want to paste on the outside of your dice.
Apply a drop of Mod Podge, enough to cover the face of one sides of the cube.
Spread the Mod Podge over the surface of the cube
Paste the image onto the side of the cube.
Apply another drop (pea size) of Mod Podge on top of your image
Spread the Mod Podge over the surface - it will dry clear. Be sure to seal in all sides and edges.
If you are Mod Podging the entire cube, only do 3 sides at a time so that no freshly glued pieces lay face down - let the 3 sides dry completely before doing the next 3 side.
