Prayers of the Faithful
                                   
Father in heaven, the greatness of Your love is beyond words to describe. By the power of Your Spirit, liberate us from all self centeredness, that we may be free to love others as Christ loves us....
Lord hear our prayer...and in Your love, answer.

Lord God of Hosts: Make of us pilgrims throughout these forty days.  Lead us through discipline to discipleship, through fasting to feasting, through privation to freedom.  Free us from our own struggles, so that we may more fully serve one another.... 
Lord hear our prayer...and in Your love, answer.

Loving Master and faithful friend - help us to be obedient and joyful, humble and caring, merciful and loving.  Anchor us in your live giving word and make us radiant for you - fitting ambassadors of your message of reconciliation.....  
Lord hear our prayer...and in Your love, answer.

Father of all mercy—as we work together with Christ, help us to not to accept your grace in vain, but to remember that now is the day of salvation, and to call upon you and serve you as you desire.... We ask
these things in his most glorious name.  Amen
