Lenten Litany: Show Us Your Cross

Here’s a litany for Lent.  Its source is unknown; it was posted on the Worship Ideas You Can Use website.

Lenten Litany

Let us live this Lenten season with the cross before us.
Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

In times of prosperity,
when success and comfort would draw us away
from the way of the cross,
Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

In darker times of trial and worry
when we feel alone,
abandoned to wander in the valley of the shadow,
Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

In the routine of each day,
in the work we do, in our lives with family and friends,
in the light of each day, and in the rest of each night,
Show us your cross, Lord Jesus!

Heavenly Father,
as a family of believers in this congregation,
we pray that all we do together
be governed by your love for us in Christ.
Keep his cross before us,
so that we are always ready and eager to follow him!
