Prayer: On the Lenten Journey

Here’s a prayer for the start of Lent from Stephen Fearing’s Wild and Precious Life blog.

Prayer at the Start of Lent

God of our salvation,
we embark this day on a journey that we have made before,
a journey that will once again sweep us into unexpected places,
always in pursuit of the path of your obedient Son.
Send your Holy Spirit to open our lips
that our mouths may declare your praise
and we may be guided on this path
of penitence, prayer, and preparation.  Amen.
