REVIEW: Walking Holy Week with Jesus – A Prayer Journal

REVIEW: Walking Holy Week with Jesus

Lent has barely begun, and yet here we are talking about ways to enhance your Holy Week. Welp, one of my Lenten resolutions is to think further ahead and be a better planner when it comes to spiritual growth. 

So, reviewing Sara Estabrook’s prayer journal, Walking Holy Week with Jesus, just seemed like a good fit with my Lenten discipline. And here we are-you and I-contemplating what that final week of Lent will look like. Ahead of time. With no panic. Just mapping out how we can make this week spiritually fruitful and get the most out of it. See, doesn’t this feel good? 😀

Shall we look at the prayer journal? 🙂

This journal is simple – perfect for anyone who isn’t a “journaling” type. The breakdown is also beautifully simple, divided into four main categories as it walks you through each day of Holy Week:

  • the daily readings
  • reflection
  • prayer
  • journal prompt to write

The prompts place you inside the Scripture reading, much like Lectio Divina. 


With this prayer journal, you’ll experience Holy Week in a whole new way. Each day from the Saturday before Palm Sunday through the Resurrection has Bible readings, reflections, prayers, and journal prompts to help you immerse yourself in the reality of Jesus’ Passion, death and Resurrection.

Imagine yourself encountering Holy Week for the first time. Place yourself into history. You’ll walk by His side every step of the way. You’ll experience the fear, the pain, the suffering, and finally, the joy of this pivotal week in Salvation History.

– written by Sara Estabrooks

About Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to seven kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-1/17. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
