PRAYER: Six Short Prayers For The Lenten Period

Six Short Prayers For The Lenten Period

From The Methodist Church

Lord, as we enter Lent help us to draw near to you in praise, stripping away all that distracts us from worship. Amen.

As Jesus resisted temptation by the devil in the wilderness, help us reflect on his faithfulness to God, his rejection of worldly values and hold these thoughts in our hearts throughout Lent and beyond. Amen.

Jesus, you prayed and fasted. As your disciple teach me about spiritual discipline in my relationship with you. Amen.

Lord may Lent be a time of inward searching that makes me more able to look with compassion at the needs of the world. Amen.

Thank you Lord for desert experiences, when being confronted with myself makes me realize my need of you. Amen.

Lord, you’ve guided us through the difficult days of Lent, encouraging us along the way. We pray as we move towards the darkest day, that you’ll not forsake us but remind us of our Savior’s ultimate gift and promise of new, abundant, eternal life for all who believe and trust in him, your precious son, Jesus. Amen.
