Our prayer for you is that today, as we enter into this season of Lent, you find time to reflect and confess as we begin to focus on Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem and then to the cross. Today in our community, Reverend Monica Carlson will lead us in a service and time of worship to prepare our hearts, minds, and souls for Christ’s journey to the cross and resurrection from the grave.
“Dear Heavenly Father,
We come to you with heavy hearts as we know the suffering that Christ endured on the cross. Thank you for Your grace, mercy, and love that You poured out when You sent Your Son to die for the sins of the world. We pray that in this sacred season of Lent that You will draw us nearer to Yourself. Prepare in our hearts, O Lord, a place for silence and solitude that we may re-discover the grace of a prayerful life. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear Your words for us in this time of spiritual renewal. Help us to keep our eyes fixed on You, the author and perfecter of our faith. We love You, praise You, and thank You.
It is in Christ’s Holy and Precious name we pray,
