Faithfully Seeking God with the
Listening Ear of our Heart
Aware that Lent is not merely a time of atoning for sins but a time of preparation. We prepare throughout Lent to become at Easter what we were baptized into: Christ’s own body. We will practice habits which will break us open, let God in, and train us to love like Christ.
Therefore, our loving God, we come before you at this time in our lives to bring, praise – a plea – and a promise – that we will gently remind ourselves that (all) “Lent is a process of rending our hearts, filling the broken places with God’s love, and fearlessly loving as Christ loved.
We place before you, O God, our sincere promises to use your grace to become the people You call us to be. Trusting in your all-powerful goodness, we dare to ask:
Give us renewed fervor to be faithful to our. AMEN
Help us to be compassionate and supportive to each other. AMEN
Bless our efforts to make a good Lent. AMEN
And support us to be faithful to our Lenten resolutions. AMEN
