Lent is that season when we stare directly at our own mortality. We make tiny sacrifices of our own to recall the incomparable sacrifice Christ made for us. It might all sound quite dreary, except on the other side of Lent is the enormous spiritual crescendo of Easter.
Prayers and Intercessions
Prayer for Today
Almighty God, Whose Son fasted forty days in the wilderness, and was tempted as we are but did not sin, give us grace to discipline ourselves in submission to Your Spirit, that as You know our weakness, so we may know Your power to save; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Prayer for our Church family
Almighty God, as we enter this season of Lent, prepare our hearts and minds to receive and understand the gift that you gave us in your Son Jesus. May our words and our actions point others to the only one who can save. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

Be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things! Joel 2:21b
I’m seated in a place of peace with Jesus. When I placed my faith in Him, He moved me from a life without hope and an eternity without Him to a place of forgiveness, freedom, and assurance of heaven. Grace Fox, Mornings with Jesus 2019
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. (Romans 10: 9-10)
Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference. Max Lucado
