Here is the first in a set of Lent Candle Litanies for Year B. They were written by Rev. Mindi, and posted on her Rev-o-lution blog. To see the entire set of litanies, click here.
First Sunday: Water
In this season of Lent we reflect on our journey of faith with Christ, remembering God’s covenant and the sign of the rainbow. God will never again destroy the earth by flood, and water, once a way of destruction, is now a way to new life through baptism.
We light this candle on the first Sunday of Lent, remembering God’s faithfulness through the sign of his covenant.
(light the first candle)
Prayer: As the days lengthen and the rivers fill with spring waters, dear God, may we be filled with your love. Let wellsprings of living water spring up in us. In the name of Christ, with whom we journey towards the cross, we pray. Amen.
