The following Prayer of Invocation is inspired by the text of Psalm 27.
God of the Lenten journey,
we are gathered in your presence
as you accompany us on this road.
Be gracious and answer us,
O God of our salvation!
Send your Spirit to this place
as we wait in wonder
with your Son in this wilderness.
One thing we ask, Lord:
to live in your presence
all the days of our lives. Amen.
