A Prayer for The First Sunday of Lent


Jesus may we follow you on the pilgrim way of Lent,

May we journey with you into the wilderness,

Willing to move beyond the ordinary,

So that we can discover your unexpected sacred places. 

Jesus may we wash our hands and purify our hearts,

Learning to thirst after righteousness and hunger after justice,

May we humble ourselves before you,

Expecting to see you revealed in a new light.

Jesus may we walk with you no matter how challenging the path, 

Learning to be patient with darkness and growth,

Willing to live with not knowing, 

Until your mustard seeds take root and sprout into life.
