A Lenten Prayer

A Lenten Prayer
Loving God you walk with us always
In times of joy and sorrow,
Strength and weakness,
Work and rest.

As we journey through Lent
Open our eyes to be filled with your love.
Open our eyes to see your hope for us.
Open our hands to do Your work.

Give us patience in our fast
Help us to set aside those things in our lives
That distracts us from you
Help us to see in one another,
The face of Your Son, Jesus

Give us hope in our prayers.
Help us to see your vision for us
Filled with love and peace.
Help us to know that we are never alone,
That you are always there for us.

Give us compassion in our almsgiving
Help us to see that in providing for one another
We truly provide for you.
Help us to share our plenty with those who have little,
That we may ease the sufferings of someone else.
We ask all these things through Your Son,
The one who walks with us always.
