Lent Intercessions: The Journey


Here’s a prayer of intercession for the Lent season. It was written by Ann Siddall and posted on the Stillpoint Spirituality Centre website.

Prayer of Intercession for Lent

We pray today for all who are walking a hard journey:

for those whose daily paths encounter barbed wire and guns;
for those who did not want to leave home but were forced to;
for those who set out today in search of food and water;
for those whose journey is shattered by economic hardship;
for those whose journey is marred by pain or despair,
     and for those who faithfully journey alongside them;
for those who are making a move and beginning again;
for those who are clinging on to something that has ended;
for those who are being bullied, and for those who are bullying;
for those who have just taken their first breath, and
for those who today will take their last.

May this Lenten journey, with its stories
about the hard places of Jesus’ experience,
give strength and courage to all
whose journey is far from easy.
And may it inspire us to risk Christ’s Way of love
as we share the journey with other travelers.
We make this prayer in his name. Amen.
