Lent Prayer

Here’s a prayer of petition for the season of Lent.  It comes from Anita Monro, on the MAD-e-Lena blog.

Prayer for Lent

Spirit God,
we pray that in this Lenten season,
by prayer, study and self-giving,
we may penetrate more deeply
into the mystery of Christ’s journey;
that, following in the way
of Christ’s cross and passion,
we may come to share
in the healing and celebration
of Christ’s resurrection
through Christ, with Christ, in Christ,
for the glory of God. Amen.
