I am sharing with you this beautiful Lenten prayer from Idlewild Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tennessee.
Holy and Human,
Sometimes the road is heavy and belief is hard.
During this Lenten journey turn us from sin,
and walk alongside us that we might continue in the Word.
For places of unbelief, give to us clarity.
For places of resistance, give to us vision.
For places of frustration, give to us gratitude.
Allow us the treasure of walking in your grace and forgiveness.
Set us free in your truth –
not wandering in waywardness or complacency –
but clearly that we might be with you in your Wisdom,
who cries out in the busiest of places.
With Christ we pray,
Amen and amen.
