SIX SHORT PRAYERS FOR LENT

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 disci-ple teach me about spiritual discipline in my relation-ship 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
