Prayers of Request for the Start of Lent

God of Eternal Love,
We have made our commitment to You,
and have started a new journey into purposeful growth.
But, we know that if we are to remain faithful
we need Your help and Your strength.

So, we ask...
Teach us to pray with faith and read Your Word with understanding.
Teach us to worship with passion and gather together with love.
Teach us to give generously,
serve compassionately
and use our time mindfully,
so that we may reflect Your goodness,
and that others may discover Your grace through us.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
