Weekly Prayer Focus—Lent
We are encouraged to offer prayers of lament as a way of emptying ourselves of ourselves: our pride, our sin, our sorrows, our frailty, and our grief. Our Weekly Lent Guided Reflection offers this model of lament found in the psalms.
Let us pray:
- turning to God with confident praise
- opening our hearts to God with honesty
- asking God to intervene
- lifting our voices in praise and worship.
Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Psalm 19:12-13 (NIV)
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 (NIV)
