Prayer for beginning the journey of Lent

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭12‬ ‭NRSV‬‬

Let us pray.

Lord Jesus as we journey through Lent help us to walk towards You. This journey should not be about our accomplishments, about what we can do, about what have done. Lord this journey is to be about coming to You. It is about drawing closer to what brings blessings to others. It is about seeing the world and all that is in it with new eyes. To be able to hear the music of life living together in its varied rhythms and melodies with clearer ears. It is about loving with a depths that lives in this life and thrives in the divine.

Lord Jesus don’t let us give up when we find this journey too hard. When we don’t understand help us to find peace in Your grace. When we are weighed down with despair lead us deeper into You, our rock and our living salvation. We pray this in Your Holy name. Amen
