We offer two prayers for Lent

Suffer me never to think that I have knowledge enough to need no teaching,

wisdom enough to need no correction,

talents enough to need no grace,

goodness enough to need no progress,

humility enough to need no repentance

devotion enough to need no quickening,

strength sufficient without They Spirit;

lest, standing still, I fall back forever more.


Lord, Let everything I do this day and in this season of Lent come from You, be inspired by You.

I long to be closer to You. Help me to remember that nothing is important in my life unless it glorigies You in some way.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day of my life and keep saying, “Tomorrow, I will spend more time in prayer” but now my longing meets Your Love and I want to do it now. Help me to rely on You for help.

The prayer asks You that I reach perfection. Please, Lord, remind me that “perfection” isn’t the crazy, “successful” way I try to live my life, but a perfection of my most authentic, real self. My “perfection” might be holding my many flaws in my open hands, asking You to help me accept them.

Heal me, Lord, and help me to find You in the darkness of my life. Let me reach out in this darkness and feel Your Hand and Love there to guide me.
